Sirote & Permutt, PC

Sirote & Permutt began in the years after World War II, with the partnership of Morris Sirote, Edward Friend, Jr., James Permutt, and Karl Friedman. Together, they built one of the Southeast’s largest and most respected law firms. They succeeded in the early years, and the firm continues to succeed for two reasons. Above all, we put our clients’ interests first. And we approach the practice of law with passion and commitment, and an uncompromising belief in a few core values. Integrity. Trust. Selflessness. Courage. Loyalty. Excellence. Leadership.

Today we serve clients from offices in Birmingham, Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, and Mobile, Alabama, as well as Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando, Florida.

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

The industry recognizes the results of our approach. Eighty-eight of our attorneys have been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America©, Chambers USA, and Mid-South 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 and securities, tax, estate planning, and litigation.
