Our Core Practice Areas
Our trial lawyers are tenacious advocates — and sophisticated negotiators — that clients demand. Although we handle the most challenging cases, our success rate at trial is among the best.
We cover the full spectrum of corporate transactions important to global businesses, including private equity, M&A, fund formations, tax, capital markets, debt finance and real estate. Our attorneys don’t just understand the market — they often “move the market” with innovative solutions.
We have one of the most respected intellectual property litigation practices in the country. It has been an integral part of the Firm since 1925.
We represent some of the world’s largest companies in high-profile, complicated and often contested restructurings.
