We believe that a diverse and inclusive workplace is essential to providing the highest-quality legal services and maximizing opportunities for personal and professional development. We provide strategic transactional, regulatory and litigation advice to advance the business objectives of leading financial institutions, multinational corporations, entrepreneurial businesses and non-profit ventures in the U.S. and globally. 

Litigation Overview: Co-led by Partners Michele Jacobson and Julia Strickland, our Litigation Group represents clients in a range of complex disputes, appearing in federal and state trial courts, appellate courts and before public agencies and arbitration tribunals throughout the country. The group is nationally recognized by Chambers USA, The Legal 500 and Benchmark Litigation.

We are focused on finding cost-effective solutions, including engaging in pre-litigation dispute resolution, and providing ongoing counsel on minimizing transaction litigation risk and the evolving regulatory environment.
