About Dentons Sirote

Dentons Sirote, formerly known as Sirote & Permutt, was founded in 1946 by three young, entrepreneurial lawyers whose Jewish heritage was a barrier to entering established law firms at that time. Together, they built one of the largest and most respected law firms in the Southeastern US. Above all, they put their clients’ interests first, and they approached the practice of law with passion, commitment and an uncompromising belief in a few core values:  Integrity, Trust, Selflessness, Courage, Loyalty, Excellence, and Leadership.

Dentons Sirote was founded on a simple philosophy: to deliver excellent legal services on a timely basis at a fair price. For over 75 years, Dentons Sirote’s lawyers have maintained an uncompromising commitment to fulfilling this promise for every client that the Firm has the privilege to serve. While the Firm now represents a more expansive list of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to family-owned businesses and high net worth individuals, the Firm’s commitment to delivering an excellent work product in a timely manner at a fair price remains unchanged.

What sets Dentons Sirote apart is not just the experienced counsel it provides. It is also the commitment of its people to always be there for its clients, never satisfied until their goals are fully met and never sacrificing principles along the way. 

Dentons Sirote Supports

Dentons Sirote has always believed that its success is intertwined with the health and achievements of its communities.  The Firm’s culture is built not only on excellence in the law but also on a commitment to serve the communities in which its lawyers live and work. The Firm’s founders encouraged all lawyers to participate in civic, religious and social organizations and to give back to the community. This practice remains a cornerstone of the Firm to this day, with lawyers championing worthwhile causes to help others in the community.

Continuing a tradition of service now seven decades in the making, Dentons Sirote’s lawyers proudly volunteer their time to support charitable and community organizations, making a difference throughout Alabama, with commitments ranging from governance, fundraising and volunteering at events to pro bono representation. To that end, the Firm established Dentons Sirote Supports to further support the charities and nonprofits that strengthen its communities and positively impact the areas of health, education and the arts. Having a dedicated effort focused exclusively on charitable giving allows Dentons Sirote to bring attention to these well-deserving nonprofits.

A culture of inclusion

Dentons Sirote has made diversity in the workplace a key pillar of the Firm since opening its doors over 75 years ago. Because the Firm understands that everyone benefits from a diverse group of people coming together to share ideas shaped by their individual experiences, Dentons Sirote is home to lawyers from a wide array of backgrounds.

When it comes to diversity, inclusion and acceptance, Dentons Sirote has been an industry leader since its beginnings. Over the years, the Firm’s commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive environment has been unflagging. In 1978, the first female lawyer of the Firm was hired, and she became one of Alabama’s first female partners at a major law firm. A few years later, Dentons Sirote became the first major law firm in Alabama to welcome an African American partner. Several of the Firm’s lawyers were at the forefront of the civil rights movement and were involved in some of the most significant causes of the era. Today, many Dentons Sirote lawyers are active participants in social and racial justice and diversity initiatives across the state.

The promotion of religious and racial tolerance always has been and always will be an important aspect of the Firm. Throughout Dentons Sirote’s history, its lawyers have held numerous professional and civic leadership roles and been recognized locally and statewide for their contributions to the communities in which they practice law. The professionals and employees of Dentons Sirote are actively involved in community organizations and programs that promote understanding and cultivate unity. This dedication to inclusion permeates everything the Firm does in the practice of law.
