Langrock Sperry & Wool, LLP offers a full range of legal services to business and individual clients throughout Vermont. Having recently celebrated forty years of practice, we are one of the oldest firms in the state. With twenty-two lawyers, and offices in Burlington and Middlebury, the firm is also one of the largest in Vermont. With an average of almost twenty years in practice, and an established record of professional achievement, our lawyers are among the most experienced and qualified in Vermont.
Yet we are not a typical law firm. Rather than a hierarchy, we are virtually all partners and peers, and we serve our clients as a team. Rather than encouraging narrow specialists in isolated departments, we take an interdisciplinary approach. Rather than eating at our desks, we have lunch together, to apply our collective knowledge to the pressing legal problem of the day. We believe that broad and flexible minds, working together across boundaries, yield the best results for our clients.
We are committed to achieving those results by providing the highest quality legal work and exceptional client service. Our team approach allows us to handle the simplest to the most complex matters in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Our lawyers are aggressive, but always working to find solutions. We employ a common-sense and creative approach to problem-solving, whether negotiating a business deal, crafting an estate plan, mediating a dispute, or preparing for trial.
We have a well-deserved reputation as one of the foremost litigation firms in the state. We have represented thousands of individuals, businesses, and municipalities in all types of litigation. We regularly appear in all state and federal courts in Vermont and occasionally in several other states. We receive frequent referrals from other lawyers and are known for our ability and willingness to take on particularly complex and challenging cases.
The rest of our practice is of equal breadth and depth. We handle sophisticated business transactions, employment issues, and tax planning for our business clients, wills and real estate transactions for our individual clients, and just about everything in between. We pride ourselves on understanding the particular legal needs of our clients, whether large or small.
We also pride ourselves on the quality of our lawyers. We are a diverse group of well-rounded individuals, with an impressive set of intellectual and professional accomplishments, supported by an experienced staff. The firm is the only Vermont member of Meritas, a global network of independent law firms, whose members are carefully selected for their commitment to excellence and are subject to stringent quality standards.
Above all, we are committed to our families, to our communities, and to public service. We believe that our personal lives are inseparable from our professional lives. We love to practice law, and to do so in partnership with our colleagues and our clients, and that enables us to provide the highest quality and best service that any law firm can deliver.
