Expertise, Integrity And Excellence In Legal Representation

Long & Gilliam is an association of attorneys based in Iowa in Des Moines, Iowa. We represent small, medium and large businesses, owners and senior executives, human resources personnel and in-house counsel in a wide variety of legal issues involving commercial and business litigation and labor and employment law.

Our founding attorneys, Scott L. Long and James H. Gilliam, have more than 50 years of combined legal experience representing individuals, as well as public and private companies, in business and commercial litigation disputes and in employment and labor matters. We provide legal guidance and representation to clients throughout central Iowa. We are tenacious litigators and persuasive negotiators who can ably represent your interest in court, in mediation, in arbitration and in out-of-court settlement discussions.

Successful Lawyers Recognized By Their Peers

Attorneys Long and Gilliam have been included in Best Lawyers in America listing — Scott for commercial litigation and James for employment and labor law. Both have also been included in listings of AV Preeminent* attorneys provided through Martindale-Hubbell. These peer review ratings are the highest available and are intended to reflect the highest level of professional excellence and integrity in legal practice.

We have each tried numerous cases to successful conclusion in state and federal courts and have also successfully represented clients in arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings. We have both also successfully represented clients in state and federal appellate courts.

When You Need Us — We'll Be There

We understand the frustration people feel when they are unable to reach their attorneys. We make ourselves available when it counts. Whenever possible, we return all phone calls and emails the same day. We do not allow our clients to remain in the dark about their legal issues.

We have big-firm experience and can offer clients the advantages that come with this. As solo practitioners working together as associates, we have the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of a small-firm practice. We focus on work and on satisfying our clients. We think you will find our lack of pretense and focus on client satisfaction a welcome relief.

We are comfortable taking on complex, even messy cases. We thrive on the challenges difficult cases pose. To learn more about your options and opportunities, contact the Des Moines business litigation attorneys at Long & Gilliam online or calling 515-954-3571.
