Many law firms can be intimidating and make you feel like you’re just a number, however, our tenants (and friends) at the Martin Pringle Law Firm are known for offering a small-town, family-friendly feel while still providing a high level of expertise their clients have come to depend on.
“We want our clients to feel like we are a part of their team,” said one of the firm’s attorneys, Kate McKinney. “We are large enough to handle anything that comes up but nimble enough to be responsive so our clients don’t feel like they are lost in a huge law firm.”
The firm was founded in 1951 by Martin Pringle and specialized in the aviation, oil and gas industries around Wichita, KS. In 1996, the firm recognized the rapid growth happening in Kansas City and opened a new office in Overland Park.
“It’s exciting to see what’s happening in the startup communities throughout Kansas City,” said McKinney. “We want to be involved and stay up-to-date with all the growth happening in the city.”
Martin Pringle Law Firm’s Overland Park location was originally considered an “outpost” of the Wichita office, but with the growth and evolution of businesses in the area, McKinney said it became a strong opportunity for growth.
The firm outgrew their previous Overland Park location, and in 2015, began looking for a new home. Corporate Woods was the obvious choice because it provides a very comfortable working environment for the firm’s lawyers and is also a beautiful place for clients to visit.
“Collaboration and communication are integral parts of who we are, and our goal was to create a space that helped us do that,” said McKinney. “Moving to Corporate Woods allowed us to use what was here but configure it in a way that meets our needs.”
Everything about the office was designed with collaboration in mind, from the open and inviting lobby to the spacious kitchen where the team eats lunch and hosts social gatherings. They even designed smaller individual offices to create more conference rooms and collaborative spaces.
Martin Pringle Law Firm has attorneys with a broad range of experience, from those nearing the end of their careers to those just starting out. Some firms may find it a challenge to bring everyone together, but McKinney said their new office has solved that issue.
“We created spaces that encourage collaboration, and it has had a huge impact on our office culture,” said McKinney. “Everyone has found they can learn a great deal from each other, no matter how much experience they have.”
Today, the law firm’s typical clients are small to medium sized businesses who need help navigating legal challenges, both from a business and personal standpoint. McKinney said the Martin Pringle Law Firm is thriving in their new location and are looking forward to building more relationships with other Corporate Woods tenants.
“When the Martin Pringle Law Firm expanded to Overland Park, the goal was to build relationships with people in the area,” said McKinney. “We know there are many great people and businesses throughout Corporate Woods, and we are excited to get to know more of our neighbors.”
