About

Provided by Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP
USA

BCLP has 1,200 lawyers and offices in 31 locations across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. 40% of our clients have worked with us for over 20 years. Our clients say we are close listeners, solution builders and lateral thinkers. That’s what it means to be Client Intelligent.


We build lasting relationships that deliver impact. Clients trust us because we invest in real partnerships and work faster and smarter to provide quality advice that supports success. We understand where they need to go and how they can get there.


Connecting the dots between client goals, market dynamics and the law is what we do best. Our one-firm structure, international reach and culture of collaboration ensures clients can access integrated, specialist advice wherever they need it.


Great listeners. We are law personified – friendly, capable people who inspire confidence and build relationships that last decades. We care about client success and are invested for the long-term.

Solution builders. We are solutions-focused – providing integrated, specialist advice across the world. We collaborate without ego to reach the best outcome for clients.

Lateral thinkers. We go beyond the ordinary – connecting the dots between the law, sector and market dynamics and client goals to deliver quality, commercial advice.


BCLP’s client base includes publicly held multinational corporations, large and mid-sized privately held companies, emerging companies, not-for-profit organisations, government entities and individuals. 35% of Fortune 500 companies rely on the firm to protect their interests and support their critical business needs and 30 of the world’s top 50 banks have relied on BCLP. The cumulative deal value of real estate projects the firm has advised on in the last two years exceeds $75bn.

BCLP has been named the “World’s Most Innovative Law Firm” multiple times by leading legal publications and institutions on both sides of the Atlantic because we continually strive to deliver top-quality legal services in a novel manner. Collaboratively, BCLP’s in-house technologists, process engineers, legal operations specialists, data analysts, and lawyers, drive efficiency by embedding technology, process improvement, and right-sourced labour into every aspect of the legal services we provide to our clients.


Diversity and inclusivity: BCLP brings diversity and inclusivity into every aspect of its work and culture, fostering an environment where everybody feels valued, motivated and able to be themselves. In 2021 the firm appointed Daisy Reeves as its inaugural Global I&D Client Relationship Partner across its 30 international offices. This role is a first-of-its-kind in the legal industry – BCLP is the only firm that has a dedicated partner working pro-bono with clients to develop and collaborate around diversity efforts.

For the 15th consecutive year, BCLP earned a score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate reflecting their best practice approach to diversity and policies for LGBT lawyers. This year, BCLP was recognised with the McDonald’s EMPOWER award for the firm’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. BCLP’s former UK Office Managing Partner, Segun Osuntokun, was named ‘Inspirational Leader of the Year’ at UK Ethnicity Awards 2021 and UK’s Black Powerlist 2021.
