THE FIRM 

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP is an international law firm with a particular focus on the technology & media, energy, financial, and real estate & construction sectors. Recognised as one of the most innovative law firms by Financial Times and one of the top firms for client service by BTI Consulting, Pillsbury and its lawyers are highly regarded for their forward-thinking approach, their enthusiasm for collaborating across disciplines and their authoritative commercial awareness.

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK 

Technology & Media: Whether household name consumer electronics companies, highly specialised equipment manufacturers or innovative new business ventures, Pillsbury provides technology clients of every size and at every stage with comprehensive legal and business advice. More than 250 lawyers based in the US, Europe and Asia represent entrepreneurs, seed and angel investors, venture funds, early-stage entities, growing private companies, established mid-market players and large global enterprises throughout their life cycle. The firm has taken shoestring startups to market leading positions and helped recognised industry leaders — including Amazon, AT&T, Facebook, General Atomics and Inphi — successfully conclude transformative transactions and initiatives and manage high stakes litigation.

Energy: Dating back to the incorporation of Chevron’s predecessor in 1900, Pillsbury has an extensive history of trailblazing for energy clients. The firm is one of the few legal advisors serving all industry fuel lines, offering a deep understanding of the unique issues specific to oil and gas, LNG and power (whether generated from gas, hydro, coal, nuclear or renewable sources) companies. More than half of the firm’s work is cross-border in nature. Pillsbury has advised on legal issues in more than 75 countries worldwide, providing assistance to inbound clients on US regulatory requirements as well as on projects in Canada, various Gulf Cooperation Council states, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Pakistan, Russia and numerous other locales.

Financial Services: Pillsbury has extensive experience advising and representing financial institutions around the world — including large multinational banks, local and regional banks, and private equity and investment funds — on every facet of their business, from transactions and regulatory compliance issues to corporate operations and business litigation. The firm’s primary goal is achieving clients’ commercial objectives with an absolute minimum of regulatory burden while also assessing and resolving associated business risks. Firm lawyers understand financial institutions and the multitude of regulations governing them, utilising their sector expertise to collaborate with clients and provide clear perspective about the challenges and opportunities they face.

Real Estate & Construction: The world’s leading real estate and construction companies regularly entrust Pillsbury with their high-profile property transactions, large-scale project financing and development efforts and major commercial disputes. Owners, developers, lenders, investors, landlords, tenants, contractors and other industry participants from jurisdiction around the world rely on the firm’s comprehensive sector awareness and in-depth legal knowledge. More than 150 Pillsbury attorneys are dedicated to the industry, providing clients with unique insight into the complex transactional and financing structures, essential risk mitigation techniques, sophisticated dispute resolution strategies and rapidly emerging issues and trends impacting an increasingly competitive market.
