Our professionals not only serve clients, but also the communities in which we live and work. “Sirote Supports” is an initiative that honors programs dedicated to health, education and the arts.

Since its founding in 1946, Sirote has developed strong client relationships by providing quality, sophisticated legal services.

The firm’s long and impressive history began after World War II when Morris Sirote and Edward Friend, Jr. joined forces with James Permutt to establish a law office in Birmingham, Ala. Karl Friedman soon joined the group, and together these men built one of the Southeast’s largest and most respected corporate law firms.

Sirote & Permutt represents clients throughout the United States from its five offices in Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile, Alabama and Fort Lauderdale and Pensacola, Florida.

Sirote is Alabama’s only member of the Law Firm Alliance, an international association of more than 50 law firms, which by membership gives the firm access to high quality local experts throughout the world.
