From the firm’s founding in 1946, the people of Sirote & Permutt have approached the practice of law with a focus on uncompromising values: Integrity and trust. Selflessness, courage, and loyalty. Above all, excellence, passion, leadership, and commitment.
What sets Sirote apart is not just the experienced counsel we have provided throughout nearly 70 years of serving the community with distinction. It is also our unwavering belief in always being there for our clients, never satisfied until their goals are fully met, never sacrificing principles along the way.
The history of Sirote & Permutt began after World War II when Morris Sirote and Edward Friend, Jr. joined forces with James Permutt to establish a law office in Birmingham, AL. Karl Friedman soon joined the group, and together these men built one of the Southeast’s largest and most respected law firms across a range of practice areas.
Sirote has seen 88 of our attorneys recognized by The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA and Super Lawyers, among other accolades the firm has received. Eleven of our lawyers are current or former adjunct professors of law in Real Estate, Corporate/Securities, Tax, Estate Planning and Litigation.
