Brown Rudnick, an international law firm (the Firm) with offices in the United States and Europe, represents clients from around the world in high-stakes litigation, international arbitration and complex business transactions. Clients include public and private corporations, multinational Fortune 100 businesses and start-up enterprises. The Firm also represents investors, as well as official and ad hoc creditors’ committees in today’s largest corporate restructurings, both domestically and abroad. Founded more than 60 years ago, Brown Rudnick has more than 250 lawyers and government relations professionals providing advice and services across key areas of the law. Beyond the United States, the firm regularly serves clients in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. With its Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest, the Firm has created an innovative model combining its pro bono, charitable giving and community volunteer efforts.

Main Areas of Practice

With relentless focus on the clients’ objectives, Brown Rudnick provides business-focused solutions that address today’s ever-changing, ever-demanding competitive marketplace. Assembling cross-disciplinary teams to suit clients’ specific needs, Brown Rudnick focuses its attention on those practice areas and industries where the firm is, or can be, a recognized leader, including bankruptcy and corporate restructuring; complex litigation and international arbitration; corporate, securities and M&A; distressed debt and claims trading; emerging companies; energy, utilities and environmental; executive compensation and ERISA; finance; funds; government contracts; government law and strategies; health care; intellectual property; intellectual property litigation; life sciences; real estate; tax; white collar defense and government investigations.

An important strategic focus includes representing hedge funds both domestically and internationally. Brown Rudnick serves funds clients in a wide spectrum of investment activities such as fund transactions, distressed debt and claims trading, portfolio company acquisitions and dispositions, and shareholder activism. When representing funds as bondholders in major domestic or international corporations, Brown Rudnick, unlike many of its competitors, has the ability to be directly adverse to leading commercial banks that may be at odds with bondholders in the capital structure. This has allowed the Firm to occupy a key strategic position in the legal market: to act conflict-free against these major financial institutions in complex global litigation and other high-value matters.

Brown Rudnick also differentiates itself through representation of private equity and venture funds and venture-backed companies across the U.S. and throughout Europe. Fueled in part by the needs of clients in the technology and life sciences sectors, Brown Rudnick’s prowess in closing complex cross-border acquisitions and financings is notable for a firm of its size. Brown Rudnick drives life-cycle client relationships by providing all necessary strategic advice, from company organization through all stages of a client’s growth and financing, to the client’s final sale or IPO and its ongoing needs as a public company. The Firm’s active patent practice, licensing and IP Litigation Practice Group complement this slate of services, helping clients to protect, defend and leverage their key business assets.

Brown Rudnick’s Dispute Resolution & Restructuring Department, with a robust U.S. and international presence, provides a full range of litigation, arbitration and mediation services to clients around the world. The Firm represents clients in a wide variety of commercial disputes, including financial, regulatory and fraud investigations. Specific areas of focus include restructuring and insolvency, mass torts, real estate, telecommunications, government contracts, construction, intellectual property, international arbitration and white collar defense and government investigations. The Firm is regularly arrayed against many of the world’s most prominent financial institutions and investment banks in some of the most contentious engagements on behalf of bondholders, creditors, equity holders and other investors, foreign liquidators and tort claimants.
