Overview

Our Litigation Group comprises approximately 600 attorneys throughout the firm’s offices, and our attorneys are admitted to practice throughout the U.S. as well as more than 30 other countries and territories. Our international experience enables us to effectively represent non-U.S. plaintiffs and defendants in U.S. judicial proceedings. We represent clients in trial and appellate courts at the federal and state level, before administrative tribunals, and in arbitrations and other dispute resolution proceedings. We also represent clients in proceedings involving government agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Attorney General’s Office, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the New York Stock Exchange, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service.

We have handled some of the largest and most high-profile cases in recent years. In securities litigation, we have served as lead counsel in several of the largest securities class actions in U.S. history, and we have handled cases responsible for the law that today guides participants in corporate control contests. In the area of mass torts, our litigators pioneered the “national counsel” model of handling this complex litigation, and we have been involved in many of the significant mass tort litigations of the last 20 years.
