Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP HIGHLIGHTS
A Global Leader
Gibson Dunn is a world-class firm in every sense of the word. Renowned for our litigation practice – The American Lawyer named us to an unprecedented second term as the 2012 Litigation Department of the Year - and acclaimed for our corporate work, we hire the best and the brightest and provide the mentoring and opportunities our associates need to succeed. Founded in Los Angeles in 1890, Gibson Dunn has grown to include over 1,000 lawyers in 17 offices located in major cities throughout the United States, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Asia. While we have deep roots in Los Angeles and the West Coast, our New York office is now the largest single office with nearly 300 lawyers, who, along with the rest of the firm, represent the world’s leading corporations and financial institutions. We pride ourselves both on our ability to provide excellent, seamless client service from each of our offices and our success in maintaining our core values of collegiality, teamwork, and mutual respect. In recognition of our achievements, The American Lawyer repeatedly has named Gibson Dunn to its A-List of the nation’s 20 elite firms.
