Firm Details

Paul, Weiss is a world-class law firm whose influence spans the globe and whose lawyers have left their imprint on the landscape of modern jurisprudence. Few firms can match the breadth and depth of skill provided by our leading corporate and litigation practices. The firm is equally recognized for its capabilities in the areas of bankruptcy and corporate reorganization, employee benefits and executive compensation, finance, intellectual property, personal representation, real estate and tax law.

Our lawyers serve as counsel to many of the largest publicly and privately held corporations and investors, in the U.S. and throughout the world. We also serve numerous entrepreneurs and start-up companies, and over the years have nurtured many through their growth into industry players.

Paul, Weiss has long maintained a strong commitment to diversity and public service. Our efforts to recruit and retain a diverse workforce have been recognized through our ranking at the top of surveys addressing the hiring and retention of minority lawyers. From helping Thurgood Marshall prepare and argue Brown v. Board of Education, winning landmark victories in civil rights cases like defending Edith Windsor in United States v. Windsor before the lower courts and the United States Supreme Court ultimately overturning portions of the Defense of Marriage Act and to handling death row cases, our lawyers’ pro bono work has contributed to significant outcomes in cases vital both to individuals and to our society as a whole.

We are headquartered in New York City and have offices in Washington, D.C., Wilmington, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Beijing and Toronto.
