Boston-area business law firm Morse, Barnes-Brown & Pendleton (MBBP) has announced it is expanding its reach to serve clients from its new Salt Lake City, Utah office. MBBP is known for serving emerging high tech and life sciences companies and their investors in the Boston area, and sees the fast-growing market in Utah and the broader Mountain West region as a natural fit. Utah has the second-fastest rate of job growth in the US, as well as first-rate universities, vibrant tech and life sciences industries, and highly educated workforce with an entrepreneurial culture.
According to the firm's managing partner Lisa Warren Treannie, "Utah is a perfect fit," with the region's increasing demand for lawyers who represent high tech, medical device, and life sciences companies as well as the investors who invest in these companies.
Partners Jeff Steele and Jim Kelly will head up the Salt Lake City effort.
