Sirote & Permutt, P.C., is excited to announce that in the coming months we will officially combine with Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, to launch Dentons Sirote, positioning us as the first global law firm in Alabama.
We look forward to combining with Dentons, a highly respected and top-ranked global law firm with a breadth and depth of coverage that, like us, clearly prioritizes their clients by focusing on quality, innovation, client service, and inclusion and diversity.
At launch of the combination with what will be known as Dentons Sirote, Dentons will extend its reach to 198 locations with 44 offices in the US. The firm’s more than 11,000 lawyers are organized into 24 business sectors with experience in 40 practice areas of expertise.
This will be the fifth combination as part of a recent series of combinations (Project Golden Spike), dedicated to advancing the first truly national US law firm capable of helping clients navigate the New Dynamic. Combining with Dentons will allow Sirote to connect opportunity to talent and give us the ability to meet the evolving needs of our clients by leveraging Dentons’ extensive practice experience, deep industry knowledge, and global reach. 
The Best of Both Worlds
“We are delighted to be combining with Dentons, a firm that shares our common zeal for providing superior service to clients, now and in the future," said Todd Carlisle, President of Sirote. "The unique thing about this combination is that it’s the best of both worlds for our clients and us. By combining with Dentons, our clients will continue to work with the Sirote lawyers they know and trust, as well as having access to additional talent and innovative solutions to help them achieve their objectives in a rapidly evolving business climate wherever they are located."
"In the New Dynamic our clients are confronted with constant, accelerated change and want to work with a law firm that has the experience and confidence to help them navigate it wherever they are located," said Joe Andrew, Global Chairman of Dentons. "Sirote is a leading law firm in Alabamawhere the legal spend exceeds the entire country of Indiaand our combination not only positions us as the first global law firm in the state but also marks our fifth Golden Spike combination and gets us one step closer to becoming the first truly national US law firm."
Once officially combined, we will be known as Dentons Sirote. What will not change is our people, our firm leadership, our commitment to our community, or our current locations.  We will continue serving our clients the same way we have for the past 74 years using a trusted advisor model that builds upon the personal relationships we have and will continue to develop with our clients and their businesses and families.
The Big Picture
For Sirote, this combination with Dentons is a testament to our commitment to our clients. It’s a demonstration of our focus on exceptional client service - supporting clients wherever they do business, whether in Alabama, the US, or across the globe.
