Steptoe & Johnson PLLC

 

Steptoe & Johnson PLLC is a U.S. law firm with core strengths in business, energy, labor and employment, litigation and transactional law.  We have more than 300 attorneys serving clients in 13 office locations in Colorado, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia.  Steptoe & Johnson’s Pennsylvania locations include the Meadville office and the Southpointe office located in Canonsburg.

Steptoe & Johnson was founded in 1913.  Since then, we’ve learned a thing or two about what it takes to meet your goals.  No matter how much we grow, our first priority is building relationships. 

 Our attorneys practice in more than 40 different areas of law and have been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® and Chambers USA America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.  They work closely with clients in industries including health care, engineering, manufacturing, technology, real estate, and finance.  They provide guidance on everything from the selection of the most advantageous structure for a business to complex corporate issues and proactive advice on day to day operation.        

Accountability is not a goal at Steptoe & Johnson, it's a managing principle. From the moment you first call about a matter, we identify your business goals and clarify your desired outcome. Then we work with you to choose the best legal approach, assign the right person or team and carefully monitor the time and resources it takes to deliver results at a cost that makes business sense. The idea is to keep you informed about how we are spending your money.
