Chief Operating Officer
With more than 15 years of legal and business experience, Adrienne Whitmore serves as the Chief Operating Officer of International Maritime Group. Her previous years working with large corporate firms, where she managed substantial litigation caseloads, directed effective discovery plans and navigated persuasive trial strategy – combined with her experience supporting individual attorneys as they build their companies – has given her the skills to master the varied and complex task of managing IMG.
As COO, Adrienne is responsible for aligning the business and day-to-day management of the office and litigation matters with the core values of the firm. She creates the internal processes for managing the caseload of IMG, develops litigation strategies and collaborates with the team to create and implement effective and efficient representation of all IMG clients. Adrienne is the lead “client-care officer” maintaining direct contact with every client and partner as a representative of the IMG core leadership.
Adrienne received her bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Washington and has been a legal aid for a court-appointed criminal defense attorney in Washington DC, worked on pro bono legal matters in the community, as well as with inmates in the King County Jail system, which has given her a broad perspective of the impact legal matters have on the individual. She currently lives in Renton with her husband and two daughters where she also works as the CFO of Whitmore Woodworks, a family-run carpentry business. In her spare time you can find Adrienne planning gatherings, cooking and wine tasting.
