About Parsons Behle & Latimer

Parsons Behle & Latimer was founded by prominent mining lawyer William Howard Dickson in Carson City, Nevada. In the spring of 1882, William Dickson, along with law partner Charles Stetson Varian, moved their law practice to Salt Lake City. At that time Utah was involved in a flurry of mining activity. In its early days, under the name of Dickson & Varian, the firm assisted in the organization of more than 100 mining companies, including Utah Copper Company, now known as Kennecott Utah Copper; Hercules Powder Company; and Columbia Geneva Iron Mining Company.

In addition to founding the firm, William Dickson, affectionately known as Judge Dickson, was appointed by the United States President to serve as U.S. Attorney for Utah, a position he held from 1884-1887. When Judge Dickson moved to Utah, he brought his office furniture, including a roll top desk, book cases and chairs. Over time, these items have been passed down through the members of the firm and currently occupy a space in the firm's main office in downtown Salt Lake City.

Over the course of the next 130 years and under various name changes, including the Parsons Behle & Latimer name, adopted in the late 1960s, the firm sustained success in delivering exceptional service to our clients. This success is firmly rooted in our fundamental core values that have guided the firm since its inception: client service; professional integrity; ethics and professionalism; collegiality; and community service. Today, under the leadership of Chairman & CEO Raymond J. Etcheverry and its board of directors, Parsons Behle & Latimer is the largest Utah-based law firm and has grown to more than 130 attorneys with offices in Boise, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Reno, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C.
