About

This content is provided by Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP.

Firm Overview:

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP is an international law firm with a particular focus on the technology and media, energy, financial services, and real estate and construction sectors. Recognized 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.


Main Areas of Practice


Energy & Natural Resources:

Pillsbury has advised on precedent-setting energy industry deals and projects in 75 countries worldwide, offering clients a combination of geographic reach, legal and regulatory depth, and energy-sector-specific experience that is unmatched among the world’s leading law firms. A leading practice in nuclear law, oil and gas, and renewable and alternative energy, Pillsbury has received more than a dozen Deal of the Year awards from leading publications for projects in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia. In the field of natural resources and the environment, Pillsbury was named the Environmental Law Firm of the year in 2014 by US News and Best Lawyers. With a team of 40 lawyers working full-time on environmental matters, Pillsbury is home to one of the largest dedicated environmental practices in the United States.

Real Estate & Construction:

Pillsbury has a unique history of deal-making throughout the United States, with leading real estate practices for more than 50 years on the East and West coasts. Because of its size and geographic reach, the firm’s real estate practice group is one of the few national practices capable of handling the full range of assignments, from multi-jurisdictional portfolio transactions to single asset deals in local markets. Lawyers on the construction counseling and dispute resolution team have been hailed by Chambers as part of the “preeminent practice of its kind in the United States.” They’ve earned this distinction by working on some of the world’s most complex construction projects: the Panama Canal extension, major infrastructure cases around the globe and two of the largest hospital disputes in history, as well as commercial, industrial and residential projects worldwide.

Pillsbury established the firm’s technology industry legal practice in 1968, when it incorporated Intel. Today, the firm’s technology industry practice is one of the world’s largest, comprising more than 250 lawyers based in the United States, Europe and Asia. From incubator to IPO, from M&A to international expansion, Pillsbury lawyers guide technology companies of all sizes and at all stages of development. In the last 30 years, the firm has filed more than 52,000 patents and over 19,000 trademarks, including foreign marks in around 145 different countries. Pillsbury protects the intellectual property of its clients through the efforts of its high-stakes IP litigation practice, which ranks among the top 10 in the nation in patent, trademark and copyright litigation. Technology clients also benefit from the firm’s top-ranked global sourcing practice. Among the most experienced advisory teams in the word, the firm’s global sourcing lawyers have led 1,000 transactions worth more than half a trillion dollars in contract value, and represented 30% of the Fortune 100.
