Bill Clark, Don Partington, Bob Hart and Chris Hart created the firm in 1976 with the vision of a client-centric business model and fully collaborative internal team. Inspired by the idea that people can do more together than separately, they saw an opportunity to organize differently – with each partner taking ownership not only in the firm, but also of personal responsibility and accountability for delivering the best service to each and every client. In the 1980s, like-minded lawyers Dennis Larry, Bill Bond and Hank Stackhouse joined the original four men, further cementing the firm’s core values. The firm grew with a wholehearted commitment to this shared vision and philosophy.
Today, Clark Partington’s longevity is evidence of this success. For four decades, we’ve passed down knowledge and skill not only of legal matter, but of history and hospitality. Although a lot has changed in 40 years, the fundamentals of the Clark Partington vision remain the same.
