Our deals are cross-border, our clients are international, and our more than 650 attorneys work together from 12 offices around the world.
We’re recognized for our top-tier practices such as financial restructuring, litigation, transactional and finance. Our clients include established, leading brands and up-and-coming innovators, from major financial institutions like Citibank to new media and Internet companies like Funny Or Die. Our work is honored with prestigious awards, including practice of the year and deal of the year awards. Some of our practices, like our Transportation and Space Group, even take us out of this world. We ranked third on The American Lawyer’s 2016 A-List, earning high marks compared with all of our elite peers in associate satisfaction, diversity, pro bono, and profitability
Committed to Our People
We invest in our lawyers by providing unparalleled professional development opportunities. This starts with our immersive summer program, which includes a summer-long, in-depth training program walking summer associates through the entire life cycle of a company. First-year transactional associates broaden their perspectives through our eighteen month rotation program, while litigators hone their skills through our Advocacy@Milbank training series. For mid-levels in the third year and up, our Milbank@Harvard program offers best-in-class training unlike anything offered by other firms, with intensive weeks spent in Cambridge each year learning from renowned Harvard Law and Business School professors.
Our pro bono work is an essential part of this commitment. We believe that access to legal counsel, regardless of ability to pay, is a fundamental right of all people. Our lawyers commit to a minimum number of pro bono hours a year, and, unlike most firms, Milbank has a full-time partner in charge of all pro bono matters at the firm. Our pro bono projects, which range from asylum to immigration to civil rights and criminal appeals, help sharpen our lawyers’ skills while also serving our communities.
A “Small, Big Firm”
A global powerhouse, we’re also known for our welcoming and collaborative culture. Being collegial is how we get things done. Lawyers from our offices and practices around the world work together regularly and truly enjoy spending time with one another to both serve clients and develop their careers.
Our commitment to diversity brings us together and we take pride in our affinity groups and other initiatives that contribute to our inclusive culture.
We’re always looking for ways to innovate and drive our business forward. Relocating to the ambitious new Hudson Yards development from our longtime Financial District base in late 2018, we’re broadening our horizons with a 21st-century work space customized for the Milbank of tomorrow.
