Conner Eldridge and Steve Brooks got together in January of 2018 to catch up and realized they were in similar places in their careers. They also realized that they shared a vision to build a legal practice that leveraged their extensive business experiences. Shortly after that meeting, Eldridge Brooks Partners was born. Just celebrating their first year together, Conner and Steve reflected on the experiences that led them where they are today and how they see their firm continuing to evolve.
Brooks is a formerly a private equity fund manager and was a partner at Arkansas’ largest law firm while Eldridge is a former CEO of a billion-dollar bank and a US Attorney – experience that allows them to do more than other firms. “What we’ve been doing is not always just legal work, it’s a lot of advice,” says Brooks. “Everything from capital formation to relationships and connections to capital (or) relationships and connections to people who can just help move businesses forward and solve problems.” But they are more than just relationship builders. When it’s time to get down to business, we do that as well or better than anybody,” Eldridge says. “As a private company, we’re equipped to handle anything that our clients need. Sometimes we have to battle…we can battle with the best of them.”
Steve and Conner are thrilled with their client base and looking for more who share their passion for business-legal partnerships. “At the end of the day we’re solving clients’ problems and helping them advance their goals and being lawyers allows us the chance to do that,” says Brooks. They are headquartered in Northwest Arkansas but do business statewide. Their client base continues to expand regionally.
Eldridge Brooks Partners is a premier business law firm based in Northwest Arkansas that operates statewide. The firm specializes in private capital strategy and sourcing, intellectual property, and comprehensive large-scale state and federal investigations.
