Iowa’s Scheldrup Blades Expanding Despite Flood

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Scheldrup BladesCedar Rapids, Iowa’s Scheldrup Blades, which has offices in Des Moines and Omaha, plans to grow with 20 new lawyers over the next two years.

In June 2008, the Cedar River surpassed the 500-year flood plain and placed an estimated 1300 city blocks, or 9 square miles under water. Nearly 4,000 homes were evacuated.

Scheldrup Blades was forced to move to alternate office space when it was unable to get into its offices due to flood waters. For a time, the firm operated out of a hotel room.

In the wake of the flood, Scheldrup Blades put its expansion plans on hold. But now the firm is ready to grow again. The firm has added eight staff people in the past year, including three attorneys since January.

Significant changes in employment and workers’ compensation law have increased the law firm’s case load.
