From high-stakes ("bet the company"), high-profile civil litigation, to sensitive internal or government investigations, from regulatory proceedings, to international arbitration and cross-border disputes, clients worldwide turn to Chadbourne & Parke's globally recognized litigation department time after time because they know Chadbourne will do their work with commitment, skill, integrity and results.
Chadbourne's litigation practice is comprised of exceptional lawyers who regularly try — and win — complex cases in state and federal courts throughout the United States and in international courts and arbitration forums as well. In just the past five years, Chadbourne has tried over thirty cases to verdict, a feat few law firms, even those much larger than ours, can match. And Chadbourne litigators are just as confident making their cases in the halls of Congress, before regulatory agencies, and in international arbitration tribunals across the globe.
Chadbourne's litigation department is a collaborative yet diverse group in nine offices located in key business centers across the Americas, Europe and Asia. Litigation clients seek out Chadbourne for our specific legal skills and expertise, particularly in the areas of complex commercial litigation, products liability, white collar defense, international arbitration, government investigations, regulatory litigation, securities litigation, antitrust litigation, cross border litigation and intellectual property litigation.
Since its inception in 1902, Chadbourne has been committed to offering a litigation practice second to none and delivering work of the highest caliber. Communication is our watchword — we strive to be responsive and accessible to our clients, and within the firm, technology ensures we stay connected and are able to efficiently share knowledge and information across practices and locales. Common to all of Chadbourne's work is a deep commitment to client service and an ability to see each issue not only from a litigator's perspective, but through the eyes of our clients. In addition, we pride ourselves in tailoring our strategy to the needs of a specific client with a specific dispute and not by simply applying a "one size fits all" approach to litigation.
Our clients look to us for our extensive knowledge of industry and business practices, and the regulatory and political environments in which they operate. With specialties in insurance/reinsurance, securities, project finance, consumer products, energy, mining and transportation, to name but a few, Chadbourne litigators understand our clients' business issues and speak their language. And just as importantly, our litigators are able to articulate complex, sophisticated concepts in clear, straightforward terms.
Chadbourne is a truly global firm. With litigators in offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Mexico City, London, Moscow, Warsaw, Kyiv and Dubai, we provide our global clients unparalleled access to the knowledge and resources clients have come to expect from Chadbourne attorneys, whether it's in the court room, at the negotiating table, or in an advisory role.
