Our Approach

A pragmatic, creative approach where results come first.

Our Roots

In 1951, a tax-law specialty firm opened its doors in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Its modest size hid lofty ambitions: to help its clients build on a strong foundation, and to put businesses from Iowa, the Midwest and around the country on a powerful footing for growth and competitive success.

Nearly 70 years later, those ambitions continue to act as our compass. BrownWinick has grown to become one of the region’s preeminent business-focused law firms, boasting a broad range of legal services and an impressive client list that includes both large, well-known corporations and energetic start-ups.
