ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Tracing its roots back to its formation in Chicago in 1866, with such historical clients as former first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, then the widow of President Abraham Lincoln, and the Western Union Telegraph Company, Sidley Austin LLP now has offices in key commercial, financial and regulatory centers of the world and experience representing a wide scale of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to startups, in myriad industries. The firm is known for its experience in life sciences, international capital markets and investment funds, as well as its litigation, regulatory and M&A prowess.

Sidley is also one of the few U.S. law firms to have maintained a continuous presence in Asia for three decades. Beyond its reserve of in-house talent and its legal coups, the firm is committed to maintaining a culture of collaboration and teamwork.Become a Gold Member or Log in to read the entire Scoop
