Our Expertise

Payne & Fears LLP is a regional business law firm comprised of highly qualified and successful lawyers.  We deliver excellent, individually tailored and zealous advocacy for our clients.  Our experience, qualifications, size, culture and core values all contribute to our record of success.

Some of the largest and most prestigious companies in the world, as well as smaller, emerging companies and nonprofit organizations choose Payne & Fears to represent them for their most pressing legal matters.  Our reputation for excellence, personalized service and efficiency began with our representation of employers in labor and employment matters.  That reputation has grown to include business litigation, insurance coverage and business transactions.  Whether advising our clients how to avoid legal problems or representing them in cases with millions of dollars at stake, our clients know that Payne & Fears consistently delivers the results they want.

At Payne & Fears we take our work seriously, but try not to take ourselves too seriously.  Our clients enjoy our unintentionally ominous name.  And we confess that sometimes we smile (just a little) when opponents say we live up to it.  Let us put Payne & Fears to work for you.
