Content is provided by the firm.Gordon Tilden Thomas & Cordell LLP is a trial practice firm engaging only in litigation and litigation-oriented advice. The firm represents individuals and Northwest, national, and international businesses in a broad range of complex litigation. Our practice emphasizes general commercial and contract disputes, insurance coverage issues, business ownership and governance disputes, professional liability, product liability, personal injury litigation on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants, intellectual property, real estate issues, employment disputes, and environmental liability. Our lawyers have extensive experience in the management and trial of complex civil litigation throughout the state and federal courts of the State of Washington as well as in many other jurisdictions.
The Firm limits its practice to civil litigation. From the outset, we decided that we could not and would not attempt to be all things to all people. Rather, we take advantage of our experience as trial lawyers and extend our professional services, on a matter-by-matter basis, to those clients engaged or soon to be engaged in active litigation.
Large-Firm Quality and Responsiveness
Prior to forming GTTC in 1996, our founding partners were litigation partners at two of the country’s premier large firms, Perkins Coie and Covington & Burling. All of our attorneys began their careers at large, national firms or in the federal government. We are not a traditional “pyramid”-structured firm-instead, the core of our firm is made up of experienced litigators who can work efficiently from the outset of each case. As a result, GTTC’s clients never pay for what amounts to the training of junior lawyers.
The Firm was formed on the premise that we could take advantage of current technology, lower our overhead and reduce hourly rates to the benefit of our clients, while, at the same time, continuing to provide the best legal representation available-regardless of the size of firm. We believe that we have succeeded in forming a smaller, more personable, and more agile law firm composed of experienced lawyers and staff committed to achieving our clients’ litigation goals in an aggressive-but efficient-manner. As a result, we are able to offer a rare combination of experienced lawyers and extremely competitive rates.
