Gordon Tilden Thomas & Cordell LLP is a trial practice firm engaging only in litigation and litigation-oriented advice.
GTT&C represents individuals and Northwest, national, and international businesses in a broad range of complex civil litigation and trial work. Our practice generally emphasizes three areas: business litigation, insurance coverage advice and litigation on behalf of policyholders, and personal injury litigation on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants. 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 many other jurisdictions.
GTT&C 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.
Small Firm Efficiency, Large Firm Quality and Responsiveness
Prior to forming GTT&C in 1996, our founding lawyers practiced at two of the country’s large firms, Perkins Coie and Covington & Burling. We are not a traditional “pyramid”-structured firm. The core of our firm is made up of experienced litigators who can work efficiently from the outset of each case. As a result, our clients never pay for what amounts to the training of junior lawyers.
