About Brown Rudnick LLP

Brown Rudnick is a boutique firm that represents clients around the globe in complex business transactions and high-stakes litigation. From its Boston base, the firm has erected offices up and down the east coast, as well as practices overseas in London and Paris.

A Firm of Many Talents

Founded in 1948, Brown Rudnick's work has earned it friends among high-profile east coast clients like Yale University and the state of Massachusetts. The firm also advised players in the east coast media market. Brown Rudnick’s pro bono achievements through its Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest even earned the firm a spot on the calendar in Hartford, Connecticut, which designated April 10, 2008 as "Brown Rudnick Day."

The firm’s bankruptcy and restructuring group has earned acclaim from such publications as U.S. News & World Report - Best Lawyers® and The Legal 500. Brown Rudnick's bankruptcy group has represented clients in such high-profile bankruptcy matters as Insys Therapeutics, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, EXCO Resources, General Motors, the Boston Herald, and New England Compounding Center.

Brown Rudnick is also known for its work in white collar defense and government investigations. The firm has experience counseling clients in such areas as bank fraud, computer and intellectual property crime, FCPA, health care fraud, money laundering, securities fraud, tax fraud, whistleblower claims, and much more. In 2018, the firm was named to the Global Investigations Review GIR 100 list.

Social Mobility

In 2017, Brown Rudnick launched its 1L Social Mobility Diversity Fellowship, which is open to 1Ls who are the first in their families to graduate from college. Fellows join the firm as summer associates, but during the school year, they are also invited to the firm for events and training opportunities. They also receive ongoing coaching from the firm. Finally, in addition to the summer associate salary, fellows are eligible for a scholarship of more than $20k.
