Utah bedrock in trials, litigation and business transactions


SCM was founded in 1886, ten years before Utah became a state. With this solid foundation, we consider ourselves the state’s “bedrock” law firm – especially in the areas of trials and litigation. We also offer a solid transactional practice. Over the years, we have evolved steadily and purposefully to meet the changing needs of our clients and their markets.

Today, we serve many of Utah’s most vital and prominent businesses and public entities. Some of them have been our loyal clients for more than 50 years.

At SCM, we take the time to understand our clients’ businesses and industries – and to provide customized and innovative solutions that meet their business as well as legal needs. The firm has 56 lawyers. Forty-four of them are experienced shareholders and senior of counsel. Twelve are associates. This unusual high ratio helps us provide senior-level attention to  legal matters.

In addition, the firm employs 26 skilled paralegals and law clerks. This ratio of paralegals to attorneys is higher than the ratio at any other law firm in Utah. By relying on paralegals to handle the more routine aspects of trials, litigation and business transactions, we are able to control costs for our clients.

SCM’s commitment to the practice of law has remained steadfast for almost 130 years. This singular focus benefits clients in Utah, throughout the Intermountain West – and beyond.
