Firm Overview:
Dentons is the world’s largest law firm, delivering quality and value to clients around the globe. In 2020, Dentons launched its new US Region to expand client service talents in the world’s largest legal market. The combination of Dentons US, Dentons Bingham Greenebaum and Dentons Cohen & Grigsby is the first step in forming—through an innovative, client-centric, one-firm, dual partnership model—a truly national US law firm that connects clients to top-tier legal talent across the US and around the world.

The combination increased the services and talent Dentons in the United States provides clients, and allows each US Region member firm to retain its defining characteristics and continue to provide in-and-of-the-community insight, consistent with our global polycentric model. Just as the high-quality legal counsel and business solutions Dentons delivers globally are informed by its resident lawyers’ in-depth understanding of the local culture, business environment and legal system, Dentons’ US Region recognizes the benefits to clients of locally sourced legal services with a national and global platform.

With 33 offices in 14 of the top 20 US markets, including 9 of the top 10, Dentons has talent across the mainland and in Hawai`i.

Dentons is a leader on the Acritas Global Elite Brand Index and a BTI Client Service 30 Award winner. Prominent business and legal publications have recognized its innovation in client service, including the founding of Nextlaw Labs, a legal tech accelerator; Nextlaw Global Referral Network, the largest measured by geographic coverage and number of law firm members; and Nextlaw In-House Solutions, a strategic consulting service.

Dentons has been honored by many organizations and publications, examples of which are below. But the most gratifying recognition we receive is from our clients. General counsel and other legal decision makers at Fortune 500 companies and startups, financial institutions, insurance companies, government entities and nonprofit organizations have described us as 'best in class'—'reliable,' 'accessible,' 'responsive,' 'always giving clear and practical advice' and 'innovative.'
