Maynard Solidifies Presence in Iowa


DES MOINES, IA (March 17, 2022) — Maynard & Gale (Maynard) adds brick and mortar to its presence in Des Moines, Iowa, with a downtown office in 801 Grand, Iowa’s tallest building. The move is part of an ongoing strategy to strengthen Maynard’s presence in the Midwest, where many of its clients are headquartered. Last August, Maynard added seasoned Des Moines-based litigators Angel West and Thomas Goodhue as Shareholders to its Litigation Practice. Their background and years of experience contribute nicely to the depth of the Firm’s class action capabilities and its Insurance, Product Liability, and Commercial Litigation practices. The Firm will continue pursuing talent in Des Moines, and the new space will accommodate that growth.

Maynard will lease office space from its longtime client, Principal Financial Group. Shareholder Angel West will serve as Managing Shareholder of the office.

Des Moines serves as the latest strategic business market Maynard has expanded into over the past five years, joining Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Dallas, Nashville, Miami, and Atlanta.
