History

In 1951, a tax-law specialty firm opened its doors in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Its modest size hid lofty ambitions: to help its clients build on a strong foundation, and to put businesses from Iowa, the Midwest and around the country on a powerful footing for growth and competitive success.

Today, half a century later, those ambitions continue to act as our compass. BrownWinick has grown to become one of the region's preeminent business-focused law firms, boasting a broad range of legal services and an impressive client list that includes both large, well-known corporations and energetic start-ups.

As BrownWinick has grown, the firm's areas of practice have also grown to better serve the varied and ever-changing needs of our clients in a rapidly evolving regulatory and business environment. From our roots in tax law, the firm has expanded into areas including litigation/trial law, agribusiness, banking, construction law, government relations, securities law, pensions and profit sharing, administrative law, environmental law, health law, business and corporate law, employment and labor law, workers' compensation law, bankruptcy law, public utility regulation - energy and telecommunications, international business transactions, real estate law, wills, estate and probate law, patent, trademarks and copyright law.

The firm's client base has grown and expanded, as well. BrownWinick serves as counsel to service, manufacturing, and commercial corporations, health care providers, doctors, governmental agencies and quasi-governmental agencies, banks, bank holding companies and other financial institutions, corporations and partnerships, trade associations, construction, renewable fuels, agribusiness, pharmaceutical and nutriceutical, retail, insurance, real estate and estates and trusts. Our attorneys represent entities and individuals in numerous facets of the law, including corporate, commercial, transactional, labor, securities and litigation matters.

BrownWinick's firm commitment to business makes us more than a source of sound, skilled legal counsel. It makes us a powerful strategic partner, one with the vision, perspective and commitment to position your business for the challenges you face today and on the road ahead.
