Firm Details

Founded in 1876, Barrett McNagny LLP is one of the oldest law partnerships in the state of Indiana and among the largest in northeast Indiana. Our history dates back to 1876, when James M. Barrett, a law graduate of the University of Michigan, arrived in Fort Wayne to form a practice with Charles H. Aldrich.

In 1987, the firm moved to its current location on Berry Street in a building that is as much a part of Fort Wayne history as Barrett McNagny. Once known as the Elektron Building, it was built in 1895 and is centrally located in downtown Fort Wayne.

Since 1876, Barrett McNagny has helped establish and sustain many of the area's leading businesses and public institutions. Among our diversified client base are banks, utilities, insurance companies, health care providers, manufacturers, media companies, and many small and intermediate sized businesses, for which we offer a full range of legal services. We also provide personal legal services, which include handling Medicare/Medicaid issues, adoptions, divorces, wills, and living wills, trusts, and estates.

To better serve such diverse clientele, Barrett McNagny's attorneys are divided into specialty sections according to their general legal practice areas. This structure enables our attorneys to practice efficiently, develop in-depth experience, and promptly assemble teams with combined legal talents to handle matters that require knowledge in several areas of law. This structure also allows Barrett McNagny lawyers to handle the most sophisticated of legal needs for their business clients, saving clients time and money.

We have attorneys licensed to practice in several states, including Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, New York, and Florida. Many of our attorneys are admitted to various courts throughout the U.S. and can be admitted through a process called pro hoc vice to other jurisdictions and courts as needed.

We're a team who is truly focused on getting our clients the results they deserve. And we do it all with the trusted, responsive counsel you've come to expect from Barrett McNagny.
