Foulston Siefkin History
Our Founders' Vision
Foulston Siefkin traces its origins from 1919, when founders Robert C. Foulston and George L. Siefkin began their law practice in Wichita. Among their strengths was an ability to attract and train talented lawyers. The founders’ vision foretold the growth and diversification of the Kansas economy and the complexities of the legal climate.
A KANSAS INSTITUTION
In the early part of the twentieth century, Foulston Siefkin represented an emerging aircraft company rolling out biplanes for the military and another young company building only lanterns. Now, Foulston Siefkin continues to expand its numbers and talents, and today that emerging aircraft company is known as Spirit AeroSystems, Inc., and The Coleman Company is making more than just lanterns.
POSITIONED FOR THE FUTURE
Now with more than 90 attorneys in three Kansas offices, Foulston Siefkin is honored to have grown with these companies from the beginning. Today, we represent a diverse client base ranging from individuals and emerging businesses to Fortune 500 companies and our representative clients mirror the Kansas economy in the aerospace, agribusiness, construction, energy, education, financial, health care, manufacturing, retail, real estate, and technology sectors. Since our firm is based in Kansas, our clients benefit from a lower cost basis that can lead to a more personal, cost-effective, efficient, higher-value delivery of legal services. We’re proud to have our roots and our future in Kansas.
