We offer the highest quality legal advice coupled with extraordinary, tailored service to deliver exceptional results to our clients and help their businesses succeed. We invest in the brightest legal talent and build dynamic teams that operate at the pinnacle of their respective areas. And we believe in empowering our lawyers, encouraging entrepreneurialism, operating ethically and with integrity, and collaborating to bring our best to every engagement. These principles have guided us in building successful long-term partnerships with clients since our founding in 1909.
Transactional: Our lawyers negotiate and close highly sophisticated transactions, representing public and private companies and private equity investors across a broad range of complex engagements.
Litigation: Our trial lawyers represent companies involved in business-critical lawsuits. We offer a deep bench of lawyers who have been taking cases to verdict since the early stages of their careers. Our trial-ready approach often yields better outcomes in disputes long before trial. We also regularly represent companies and boards in white collar and government-facing litigation, where substantial financial and reputational interests are at stake.
Intellectual Property: Clients benefit from our critical mass of lawyers who are trained in a variety of technical disciplines with experience in litigation, transactions and counseling matters involving all areas of intellectual property.
Restructuring: Our restructuring lawyers navigate clients through the turmoil of situations involving financially troubled companies, with a powerful combination of sophisticated business advisory and crisis management and extensive experience in U.S., UK and international insolvency matters.
