About our Birmingham, AL: office

With 115 attorneys in five offices, Sirote & Permutt handles corporate transactions, business and financial services, estate planning and litigation on behalf of Fortune 500 companies, family-owned businesses and high net worth individuals.

Our professionals not only serve clients, but also the communities in which we live and work. "Sirote Supports" is an initiative that honors programs dedicated to health, education and the arts.

Since its founding in 1946, Sirote has developed strong client relationships by providing quality, sophisticated legal services.

The firm's long and impressive history began after World War II when Morris Sirote and Edward Friend, Jr. joined forces with James Permutt to establish a law office in Birmingham, Ala. Karl Friedman soon joined the group, and together these men built one of the Southeast's largest and most respected corporate law firms.

Sirote & Permutt represents clients throughout the United States from its offices in Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile, Alabama and Fort Lauderdale and Pensacola, Florida.

Sirote is Alabama's only member of the Law Firm Alliance, an international association of more than 50 law firms, which by membership gives the firm access to high quality local experts throughout the world.

  • 5.0/5.0 Review for Jeff G. Underwood by a Sole Practitioner on 05/18/16 in Real Estate

    I've had the privilege of working with Jeff for a number of years, and I would rate him as being among the best real estate lawyers that I know. His knowledge of real estate law, coupled with his professionalism, make him one of the best.

Sirote & Permutt has made diversity in the workplace a key pillar of the firm since we opened our doors nearly 70 years ago. Because we understand that everyone benefits from a diverse group of people coming together to share ideas shaped by their individual experiences, Sirote & Permutt is home to lawyers from a wide array of backgrounds.  

The promotion of religious and racial tolerance always has been and always will be an important aspect of our firm. Several Sirote attorneys were at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement and were involved in some of the most significant causes of the era. 

Today, more than a quarter of our attorneys are women or minorities. In the 1970s we hired our first female attorney, and she became one of Alabama’s first female partners at a law firm. A few years later Sirote became the first major law firm in Alabama to welcome an African-American partner, again leading the state in diversity.

Our attorneys hold numerous professional and civic leadership roles and have been recognized locally and statewide for their contributions to the communities in which we practice law.

At Sirote & Permutt, we don’t just talk about inclusion and diversity. We live it every day, and we believe our people and our clients continue to benefit significantly because of it.
