SmithAmundsen LLC is a business law firm focusing in business transactions, litigation and labor and employment matters. The firm has approximately 180 attorneys practicing from seven offices in the Midwest of the United States.

History[edit]

SmithAmundsen was founded in 1997 with 52 attorneys (16 partners) after a split with Querrey & Harrow. The firm operated as O'Hagan, Smith & Amundsen until June 2006 when Jim O'Hagan and Kevin O'Hagan withdrew as members of the firm. The firm has operated and grown as SmithAmundsen since that time.

In December 2009, Law360 ranked SmithAmundsen as having the 26th largest insurance practice in the United States.[1] The same year, Law 360 also ranked SmithAmundsen as 7th on their list of U.S. law firms with the most female partners.[2]

In January 2011, SmithAmundsen merged with the law firm of Madsen, Farkas & Powen, an aviation and aerospace law firm headquartered in Chicago, IL.[3] Brandt Madsen and Alan Farkas have recently had a concentration in cases regarding drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles. The partners joined the Chicago office of SmithAmundsen and continue their practices.[4]
