Member and Practice Group Leader
Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott LLC
As a member and practice group leader with Eckert Seamans, Adam Shienvold provides legal services and solutions to business, municipal and nonprofit clients throughout the mid-Atlantic region, including business and commercial litigation, product liability defense, construction litigation and municipal disputes. “I engage with my clients, learning their business and products, to guide them through dispute resolution and the interplay between the law and their business,” he explained.
Shienvold said the pandemic brought widespread changes, “including what clients and courts expect, and how law firms can deliver efficient, cost-effective results … . We have implemented technological shifts, workplace shifts and cultural shifts in our practices and in our office that have maintained our tradition of exceptional legal service to our clients, while adapting to their evolving needs and expectations.”
He enjoys being a problem solver. “When my kids were young, they asked me one day what I did at work,” Shienvold said. “As I thought about the best way to answer them, what came through is that I help people solve problems. That is what has guided me in my practice ever since then: My role is to become a part of my client’s team, and to help them find and implement solutions to the problems that they face, to achieve practical outcomes that meet their needs and preserve the integrity of their business and the law.”
