ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Since its founding in New York in 1917, Kaye Scholer has grown strong practices in life sciences, financial services, technology, real estate and energy to become one of the top international transactional and litigation firms. Add to that some hot shot defense attorneys who have saved more than a few high-profile companies from wallet-busting litigation, and you have a firm that has positioned itself to serve everyone from the Fortune 500 crowd to middle-market corporations and government entities.
On the Backs of a Playwright and a Professor
