At Gallagher & Kennedy, we are in business to help you seize opportunities and overcome obstacles.

For over 45 years, we have built an exemplary national reputation and multi-disciplinary legal practice, and combined with the personal client service found only in a local law firm, G&K provides boutique service to every client. From individuals to employers, startups and small businesses to publicly traded corporations, professional sports franchises to public entities, local to national, the G&K team values client relationships over single legal transactions. We foster an environment of teamwork and collaboration, which provides our clients with depth and breadth of knowledge on every legal matter.

While our roots run deep in Arizona and the Southwest, our client relationships extend across the United States and, in several cases, around the globe. Our institutional clients range from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals, including Freeport-McMoRan Inc., Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Cardinals, The Fertilizer Institute, Grand Canyon University, and Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (PSPRS).

Gallagher & Kennedy’s reputation for excellence enables us to attract challenging, sophisticated, and often high-profile legal work. Our success comes from an unwavering focus on the needs of our clients and the exceptional talent and contributions of our attorneys and professional staff. We are extremely proud of our employment longevity, with over half of the firm’s employees having served on our team for the majority or entirety of their careers. This enables us to continually attract and retain top national and local legal talent to serve our clients throughout the United States.

We are known not only for the results we deliver to clients but also for our role as engaged corporate citizens. From the firm’s very inception, our founding partners have led by example in serving the community through individual and corporate volunteerism. Our team is encouraged to serve in capacities of either professional or personal interest, with many active on boards, councils, committees, and a myriad of philanthropic endeavors across our community.
