Celebrating 50 Years of Commitment to our Clients
Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot is a multifaceted law firm serving clients large and small, from multinational corporations to Native-owned small-business startups and from the state of Alaska to private individuals.
Founded in 1971 by Ronald Birch, Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot began as a local general practice firm in Anchorage, Alaska. The firm has grown and matured, and today it is one of Alaska’s most prestigious law firm. As the needs of our clients have become more complex, we have expanded our specialized practice areas and evolved with trends and technology.
In 1975, the firm opened its Washington, D.C. office, close to the Capitol and near to major executive branch agencies so that BHBC’s Alaskan clients could benefit from a presence in the nation’s capital. In 2021 Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot proudly celebrates 50 years of providing legal services, with appreciation and continued dedication to serving our clients and communities.
