Winston was founded in Chicago in 1853 by Frederick H. Winston, who was joined by the firm’s other name partner, Silas H. Strawn, in 1894. Winston has built its reputation on the quality and character of its lawyers, past and present, many of whom are recognized leaders in the American legal community. The firm’s history of more than 160 years is a chronicle of individuals and events that have helped shape it and create the strong foundation on which it continues to build. In the past two decades, a series of mergers, office openings and lateral hires has resulted in a global law firm with 18 offices across the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The legal profession continues to consolidate globally, and Winston will continue to expand its global presence so it can serve its clients wherever it is needed.

The firm serves the needs of enterprises of all types and sizes, in both the private and public sectors. The exceptional depth and geographic reach of its resources enable Winston to manage virtually every type of business-related legal issue.

The firm understands that clients look for value beyond just legal expertise. With this in mind, Winston works hard to understand the level of involvement its clients require of it. The firm’s lawyers take time to learn about clients’ organizations and their business objectives. Significant emphasis is placed on technology and teamwork in an effort to respond quickly and effectively to clients’ needs.

Winston remains committed to the traditions of client service, professional development and community involvement instilled by its leaders of the past, while embracing the innovations driving the legal profession in the 21st century.
