A Proud Heritage
When Milton Montgomery and his son, Carroll (C.S.) Montgomery opened their law practice on November 1, 1873, Nebraska was just six years old. The first rail line connecting the east to the west had been laid across the Missouri River the year before, quickly turning Omaha into an epicenter of agriculture, transportation, finance and international commerce. As the city grew, our firm grew too, and by 1970, the present incarnation of Baird Holm was born.
We are proud to look back on the vision of our founding partners who pioneered a new legal landscape as Omaha grew and new technology emerged; our noteworthy tenure has witnessed 28 U.S. Presidents, two Great Wars, a Great Depression, and a succession of political movements and cultural revolutions that called on innovative leadership and forethought to endure.
Backed by more than 140 years of visionary leadership, we are proud to have deep roots in the region’s history and excited to embrace the future.
