We serve clients worldwide from 20 US offices; as one of the 100 largest firms in the nation, we have experience in virtually all the legal practice areas required to do business in today's global marketplace. Our goal is to provide a collaborative experience, helping clients reach their business objectives through the services we provide. Finding new ways to help clients identify solutions and new business opportunities, across industries. We are, at times, more than lawyers, we are advisers bringing new ideas to light. We understand what keeps you up at night and work collaboratively to find practical and creative solutions, at the heart of business.

To help reach your goals, we offer dedicated resources to assess, listen and provide ‘voice of the client’ data back to our attorney teams to serve clients more effectively. We have a dedicated client service team – unique among law firms – whose primary function is to bring “the voice of the client” into the firm and ensure clients have a positive experience.
