In 1971 two widely respected Salt Lake City law firms, Mulliner, Prince & Mangum and Owen, Ward & Geldzahler, merged to form Prince, Yeates & Geldzahler. Prince, Yeates & Geldzahler has since grown to a team of over 30 lawyers, supported by talented paralegals and staff, who offer expertise and assistance in a broad range of legal issues to both businesses and individuals—many of them clients who measure their association not in years, but in decades.
While a number of their lawyers have spent their entire careers with Prince, Yeates & Geldzahler, others have joined them after successful stints with other prestigious firms or following governmental service or corporate endeavors. The product of their varied backgrounds is a diverse, yet symbiotic, firm practice. their transactional lawyers provide counsel in business, intellectual property, tax, estate planning, employment, real estate, loan origination and environmental matters. Their litigators tackle disputes ranging from personal injury suits to complex commercial and class actions. Many of their lawyers bridge the transaction/litigation gap by offering seasoned expertise in bankruptcy reorganizations, loan workouts, domestic relations matters, mediation and arbitration. While they value their independence, they often consult with each other on thorny issues.
They are deliberate in their counsel, but aggressive in championing their clients’ interests. They are progressive in their use of technology for efficiency’s sake. They value their clients’ resources and bill for their services as if they were paying for them. Above all, they engage the full range of their resources—their knowledge, their experience, their time and their integrity—to find solutions to their clients’ challenges.
