At all times, our focus is on helping our clients to achieve their business and personal goals. 

We are nimble, creative, and practical. Through our representation, we seek to find practical and workable business solutions for our clients in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

We are business focused.

In everything that we do for our business clients, whether it is providing day-to-day general counsel advice, negotiating deals or representing them in litigation, we are business focused. We look for opportunities to find creative and practical business solutions that allow our clients to achieve their goals and to grow and prosper.

We are accessible.

Montgomery Purdue is of an ideal size where we are small enough that clients build a personal direct relationship with one or more of our attorneys, knowing that they can reach the same person at any time with whatever their needs may be. At the same time, we are large enough to have a breadth of knowledge and experience across a wide range of practice areas to meet all of our clients’ needs.

We are poised to lead our clients into the future while grounded in a rich history and ties to the community.

We represent all types of clients from individual real estate developers to traditional manufacturing and service industries to cutting edge technology and emerging industries. At the same time, our firm is proud of its over a century service to the Puget Sound community. We have developed deep roots and lasting relationships with the Washington business community, as well as strong collegial working relationships with other attorneys in the Puget Sound legal community. All of this enables us to achieve our clients’ goals and to represent them well in any matter.

We are cost sensitive.

Montgomery Purdue’s core focus is on closely held businesses. We deal day-to-day with the owners of the business, not middle managers of a Fortune 500 company. We feel personally accountable to each and every one of our clients for the costs of the legal services they have requested. Our attorneys personally review and edit every bill before it is forwarded to the client. We find the most cost-efficient while effective way to staff each and every matter so as to be good stewards of our clients’ legal budget.

We are partners in our clients’ success.

Some of the most rewarding aspects of our role is as trusted business advisors to our clients. We enjoy being a resource for our clients as they explore ways to grow their businesses and extend into new ventures and as they plan for business succession and transmission of wealth to future generations. We keep abreast of new developments, both in law and in business and find ways to share that knowledge and wisdom with our clients to their benefit.

The future of the legal profession must be equitable and diverse, and we are taking intentional steps to make this vision a reality.

We are dedicated to cultivating an inclusive space for each member of our team and extending this culture of inclusion into our practice. We value providing exceptional service and equal opportunity to everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity, color, gender identity, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical abilities, neurodiversity, age, sexual orientation, marital status, or veteran status.
