We understand the issues corporations face when law, policy and business intersect, often in the glare of public scrutiny and when the stakes are high: a number of our lawyers have significant experience serving as general counsels and on the boards of public companies. Our capabilities are global, extending from the United States to Europe to Asia and beyond. And we partner seamlessly with in-house and external service providers—including public relations, communications and government affairs teams—to provide coordinated, strategic advice.
We have the experience and expertise to handle all phases of a complex problem, coordinating multiple legal workstreams including executive or congressional investigations, regulatory activity, affirmative or defensive litigation, and communications. We understand our clients’ business objectives and the importance of their reputations. Our clients include major multinational corporations and financial institutions, trade associations, educational institutions and non-profits across a range of industries, including the defense, energy, health care and pharmaceutical, financial services, technology and communications sectors.
