Brown Jacobson has been a dynamic presence in eastern Connecticut for over 50 years. Founded in May 1966, lawyers from two long-established firms combined to form Brown, Jacobson, Jewett and Laudone. Initially focused on litigation, the practice expanded quickly to include commercial law, banking and real estate law, estate planning, and most recently Indian law. In 1990, the name of the firm was changed to Brown, Jacobson, Tillinghast, Lahan & King, P.C., and in 2000 it was shortened to the current Brown Jacobson P.C.
The firm is located in downtown Norwich, occupying two historic landmarks: the former Uncas-Merchants National Bank Building and the former Thames National Bank Building. The firm also maintains an office in Groton in the Chelsea Groton Bank Building. From these two locations, Brown Jacobson serves New London and Windham counties and beyond.
