Parsons Behle & Latimer was founded by prominent mining lawyer William Howard Dickson in Carson City, Nevada. In 1882, William Dickson, along with law partner Charles Stetson Varian, moved their law practice to Salt Lake City. At that time Utah was involved in a flurry of mining activity. In its early days, under the name of Dickson & Varian, the firm assisted in the organization of more than 100 mining companies, including Utah Copper Company – now known as Kennecott Utah Copper; Hercules Powder Company; and Columbia Geneva Iron Mining Company.
Over the course of the next 130 years and under various name changes, including the Parsons Behle & Latimer name, adopted in the late 1960’s, the firm’s sustained success in delivering exceptional service to our clients is firmly rooted in our fundamental core values that have guided the firm since its inception – client service; professional integrity; ethics and professionalism; collegiality; and community service. Today, under the leadership of Chairman & CEO Raymond J. Etcheverry and its board of directors, Parsons Behle & Latimer is the largest Utah-based law firm and has grown to more than 130 attorneys with offices in Boise, Las Vegas, Reno, Salt Lake City, Spokane and Washington, D.C.
In addition to the firm’s unique expertise in providing services to the natural resources industry, it has forged relationships with multi-billion dollar companies, start-up companies and individuals. Parsons Behle & Latimer attorneys offer depth and a range of experience in the areas of: Litigation; Banking & Finance; Corporate & Tax, Environmental, Energy & Natural Resources; Employment & Labor; Government Relations & Lobbying; Intellectual Property; and Real Estate.
“Business owners, large and small, have relied on us to protect or obtain what is rightfully theirs,” notes president Raymond J. Etcheverry. “We’re proud that we’ve helped hundreds of clients through the complexities of legal matters.
Just as local executives and entrepreneurs have successfully adapted to economic and market changes, so has the firm. “KUED’s business programs serve as a tool in educating the public about many of the changes,” says Etcheverry. “Our firm is proud to be an underwriter of these programs, and to be recognized as a catalyst for increased funding to KUED through the use of challenge grants.”
