About Culhane Meadows PLLC

Culhane Meadows is proudly shaking up the legal marketplace by offering exceptional, yet highly-efficient and cost-effective, client services provided exclusively by partner-level attorneys with substantial experience from large law firms or in-house legal departments of respected corporations.

Our innovative firm was born out of a desire to find real solutions to problems within the legal marketplace, all to make life easier for our clients and to give our partners a better way to practice their profession. What’s our inspiration? People and businesses that solve real problems are what compel and motivate us in all that we do and they push us to accomplish even more. One of the things we find most rewarding and motivating is asking “Why?” and “How?” when it comes to looking at a problem. We challenge and disrupt the status quo and always ask: Can we do this better? Faster? More efficiently? Answering these questions is easier when you’re inspired by the people you surround yourself with. Fortunately, at Culhane Meadows, we intentionally surround ourselves with the best of the best attorneys and we find daily inspiration among each of our partners.


Our practice covers the following core areas:

  • US Domestic and  US International Tax Planning and Compliance

  • Corporate & Business Services

  • Intellectual Property

  • Litigation & Dispute Resolution

  • Technology
