A Rare Breed of Trial Lawyers

Many law firms say they specialize in "bet-the-company" litigation. But true bet-the-company litigation—where your business is on the line—is not an everyday event. Maybe that's why it's a challenge to find a law firm with the kind of strength and experience to take on complex, high-stakes litigation. And rarer still to find one that has the confidence and talent to win.

A Litigation Powerhouse

A great litigation team doesn't happen by chance. It's the result of thoughtful and deliberate action. We set out to be a full-service firm where regulatory and trial experience would co-exist to better serve our clients. We recruit and hire the best of the best. We invest in ongoing training and development for associates as well as veterans. It all adds up to the kind of highly developed trial experience that wins cases.

Consider Our Track Record

We've served as lead trial counsel in major litigation for Fortune 100 and other domestic and multinational clients, including AT&T, Caterpillar, CSX, DuPont, ExxonMobil, General Motors, Honeywell, Humana, INTL FCStone, Lockheed, United Technologies, and Anthem, Inc. From billion-dollar civil disputes to criminal trials, administrative trials, and arbitrations, to real bet-the-company cases, clients turn to us again and again. The reason: our long history of success.

We Know Your Business

Our cross-disciplinary teams know the federal, state, and local governments and regulations. We understand the industries and markets you serve. For years, we've worked with government agencies and law enforcement officials on regulatory compliance and corporate transactions. That's how we help you win in court as well as resolve disputes before government agencies and law enforcement officials.

Excellence + Efficiency

Taking a case to trial involves risks, hazards, and costs. We shoulder it with you via alternative fee arrangements (AFAs). In fact, in the past year, 750 of our litigation matters have been conducted under AFAs. It's just one of the reasons Financial Times has named us a "Stand Out Firm."

On-the-Ground Talent

Two-thirds of our lawyers regularly prosecute and defend cases in federal and state trial and appellate courts across the country and around the world. We have ready access to local counsel, expert advisors, and other professionals on the ground. 

Strong Points

We won a $919.9 million verdict in the largest damages verdict in the history of trade secrets litigation and the largest verdict in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
