Our Firm


SCM was founded in 1886, ten years before Utah became a state.  We have over a century of solid experience in trials and litigation.  We also offer a premier 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 important and prominent businesses and public entities.  Some of them have been our loyal clients for more than 50 years.  We take the time to understand our clients’ businesses and industries – and to provide customized and innovative solutions that meet their business, personal, and legal needs.

Our unusual ratio of shareholders to associates guarantees senior-level attention to any legal matter.  Our paralegal-to-attorney ratio is higher than that of many other law firms.  By relying on paralegals to handle the more routine aspects of trials, litigation, and business transactions, we can control costs for our clients.

SCM’s commitment to the practice of law has remained steadfast for over 135 years.  This singular focus benefits clients in Utah, throughout the Intermountain West – and beyond.
