Laird Norton Wealth Management

Founded by — and for — clients

Founded by clients for the benefit of clients in 1967, Laird Norton Wealth Management is a Seattle-based firm that remains independently operated and client-owned. This allows us to always put client interests—your interests—first.

Since our beginnings as a single, multi-generational family office, we have consistently built on success, steadily growing over five decades as a privately held wealth management firm. We currently manage more than $5 billion in assets for approximately 700 prominent families, individuals, foundations and endowments.

Laird Norton Wealth Management timeline

Connecting your wealth to your life

Our clients count on our decades of experience for more than world-class investment management. More than in-depth wealth planning. More than expert trust administration and estate planning. Ultimately, they turn to us for the peace of mind that comes from knowing that all the moving parts of their finances are aligned and optimized to obtain the life they want. We call this Wealth Regeneration®.

Focused on your needs only

As a firm providing fee-only services, we are paid solely by our clients to give advice that is in their best interest. We don’t accept kickbacks or sales commissions of any kind. Each LNWM advisor is paid a salary and does not benefit financially from any transaction made on your behalf. This means you receive unbiased, expert advice on how best to attain your goals and fulfill your vision of the future.

Compounding good decisions

Our integrated services are geared to optimize all that you own, while saving you time, money and undue stress. Each major financial decision you make can build on the previous ones, allowing you to move forward with confidence. The benefits of our approach tend to compound over time and through multiple generations, expanding what is possible for you and your family.

What to Expect at LNWM

We believe that successful wealth management starts with understanding both where you sit financially and what matters most to you. Clients often come to us because there’s been a catalyst in their life. And initially, they’re looking for a solution for a particular concern. That’s where the partnership begins. From there, we expand that relationship into all aspects of financial and personal wellbeing. We’re here to create the financial future that matters to you.
