Firm Bio

Pennington Lawson is a certified women-owned boutique law firm formed in 2010 with the goal of providing sophisticated, strategic, and efficient legal services to clients who seek the advice and counsel of top-tier lawyers. We specialize in employment law, litigation, and real estaed.  Within five years of our founding, Pennington Lawson was named to the San Francisco Business Times list of the Top 100 Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area (top 50 for San Francisco).

We are, by design, a small firm, founded on the principle that businesses should not have to pay massive hourly rates to get high-end legal talent. We do not pretend to be all things for all clients. We are specialists in our practice areas, with decades of major law firm experience in those areas. Because of our size, we provide our clients with individual attention. Because of our experience, we handle even the most complex of matters.

We understand that legal services are just one aspect of a broad range of business issues with which our clients are confronted each day. We consider it our responsibility to thoroughly understand the business context in which our clients’ legal issues arise, carefully consider the options available, then provide clear, timely, and practical advice and advocacy to advance their strategic goals. We pride ourselves on being resourceful, creative, and cost-effective.

Our clients work hard to be profitable in a tight economy. They deserve legal counsel who help them do that. We are those lawyers.
