"I can say with confidence that you will like our people... their intelligence and their occasional irreverence... the way they care about our clients, our families and our community"
Dear Clients, Colleagues and Friends:
Welcome to our website! Please browse around a bit. Hopefully, you will get a feel for this terrific place.
A quick snapshot. We have more than 500 lawyers practicing law in Washington, DC, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County, Anchorage, London, and Brussels. They and our clients are supported by an outstanding professional staff.
We are proud of the trust our clients have placed in us to deliver excellent results. Whether in antitrust, IP, civil and criminal litigation, government contracts, health care, or various other specialties in which we have become our clients' "go to" firm, our commitment to our clients is to deliver the highest quality and service.
We embrace three core values here:
- Excellence, measured in the highest quality client service and responsiveness;
- Innovation, in finding creative solutions and seeing "over the horizon" our clients' risks to be reduced and opportunities to be realized; and
- Partnership, in the fullest sense of how we treat each other and forge enduring relationships with our clients and our community.
I can say with confidence that you will like our people. You will like their intelligence and their occasional irreverence. You will also like our "soul" as evidenced by the rubber ducks that add whimsy to an otherwise serious fountain sculpture in our reception area. The ducks were added surreptitiously by some wag and would doubtless horrify the artist, but they remain, because they make the fountain just right for us.
Take a look around our website. Our major league client base and record of success will show you we're serious lawyers - but also real people who don't take ourselves too seriously. If you like what you see, give us a call - we'd like to get to know you.
All the best,
Kent A. Gardiner, Chairman
