Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC ("Spilman") is a full-service, super-regional law firm serving local, regional, national and international businesses. Innovative in our thinking and approach, we have erased the boundaries of a traditional law practice to think like a true business. Our people are passionately engaged to provide client-driven solutions that achieve clients’ business goals and build partnerships.
Understanding that our value is in the experience our clients receive, we believe in a client-first philosophy—selfless, hands-on, relentless and collaborative—and we have codified this philosophy as a promise to our clients. From Spilman, you can expect a higher return on the relationship. You can expect a uniquely different law firm experience.
Spilman clients include Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurial startups, and everything in between. We serve these clients in a variety of ways to best address their needs and advance their interests. A sweet spot of ours is serving as a “Virtual General Counsel,” where we become an extension of our client’s management team, working to prevent problems and providing careful, efficient guidance on legal and business issues.
Another sweet spot is handling high-risk, complex litigation matters via our trial strike force, The Battle Group. Primarily, we put balance back into the legal process by providing clients with the advantages of seasoned trial lawyers. But our approach extends beyond that: our team coordinates across an array of disciplines to help deliver innovative solutions to bet-the-company risks. Focused and experienced professionals advise clients on civil and criminal litigation and trial strategy, market impact, media relations, and relevant governmental and regulatory processes—every related area of consequence to the business.
Founded in 1864, Spilman has seven offices located in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina with lawyers skilled in virtually every substantive area of the law and admitted to practice throughout the United States.
