Firm Overview

From the firm’s founding in 1946, the people of Sirote & Permutt have approached the practice of law with a focus on uncompromising values: Integrity and trust. Selflessness, courage, and loyalty. Above all, excellence, passion, leadership, and commitment.

What sets Sirote apart is not just the experienced counsel we have provided throughout nearly 70 years of serving the community with distinction. It is also our unwavering belief in always being there for our clients, never satisfied until their goals are fully met, never sacrificing principles along the way.

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

Sirote has seen 88 of our attorneys recognized by The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA and Super Lawyers, among other accolades the firm has received. Eleven of our lawyers are current or former adjunct professors of law in Real Estate, Corporate/Securities, Tax, Estate Planning and Litigation.

Our professionals place a high priority on serving not only clients but also the communities in which we live and work. To that end, we established Sirote Supports, the firm’s charitable initiative that honors programs dedicated to health, education and the arts. The firm is also proud to be a consistent supporter and fundraising leader for the United Way of Central Alabama.

Sirote & Permutt 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 legal professionals throughout the world.

The law firm of Sirote & Permutt proudly represents clients throughout the United States from our offices in Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile, Alabama and Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Pensacola, Florida.
