Arnold & Porter LLP Perspective
Arnold & Porter LLP HIGHLIGHTS
Spanning more than 65 years of practice in Washington, DC and having eight other offices in the US and Europe, Arnold & Porter LLP has earned broad respect across a wide range of industries and sectors as a preeminent international law firm. Our global reach and experience allow us to work across geographic, cultural, technological, and ideological borders, serving clients whose business needs require US, EU, or cross-border regulatory, litigation, and transactional services. Our recent combination with prestigious San Francisco firm Howard Rice doubled our California presence. And our award-winning pro bono tradition stretches back to the McCarthy era, when firm co-founders Abe Fortas and Thurman Arnold defeated a laundry list of erroneous "Communist espionage" charges against Owen Lattimore. Today, the cases are different, but the principled commitment is the same.
YOUR CAREER AT Arnold & Porter LLP
Our paradigm is simple: we expect excellence from our attorneys, and deliver excellence to our clients. Arnold & Porter attorneys practice in more than 25 distinct areas of the law, conducting business on six continents. We work across geographic, cultural, technological and ideological borders, serving clients who require US, EU or cross-border regulatory, litigation and transactional services. Our team comprises not only top lawyers from the best universities and law schools across America and Europe, but doctors, biologists, chemists, public policy professionals and former high-ranking officials from the US government. In fact, many of our partners have held positions in the US government, from the Federal Trade Commission to the Department of Justice to the US Congress.
