Best Law Firm: Shuttleworth & Ingersoll PLC


Cedar Rapids-based Shuttleworth & Ingersoll PLC returns to the Best of list for the sixth time as it prepares to open its second Corridor location. Continued growth made “expanding our physical footprint to Coralville” the next logical step to better serve Eastern Iowa, said President Brian Bergstrom. Clients will soon be able to access specialized teams of attorneys in both locations, depending on their specific needs.

The firm has a “rich heritage” of volunteering time and resources to benefit others, and it encourages its lawyers to be active members of their communities, Mr. Bergstrom said. Among those recently recognized for their contributions are attorney Stephen Jackson, who was featured in Trial magazine for his pro bono work, and Vice President Caitlin Slessor, who was honored at Waypoint’s annual Tribute to Women of Achievement event.

Striving to deliver the best quality service in a timely manner keeps clients loyal, Mr. Bergstrom said. Other keys to delivering value are the firm’s large size, its ability to specialize and its continual investment in cutting-edge technology, tools and methods. This allows the firm to attract high-quality lawyers “who fit our culture and our mission of client service,” Mr. Bergstrom noted. “We are very thankful for that success and will continue to build our teams by specialty area and by industry to better serve our marketplace.”
