For several decades, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP’s Law Firm Practice has represented many of the nation’s top law firms and attorneys. These clients turn to us with their most sensitive matters and when there is a risk of reputational damage or the financial risks are significant. We have successfully obtained favorable results on behalf of our clients and have developed a strong practice as the “lawyers’ lawyers.”
Our team has extensive experience defending and advising clients in legal malpractice actions, sanctions motions, investigations and related matters. We represent clients in state and federal courts, and have successfully handled matters at trial and appeal, including arguing numerous cases before the New York Court of Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In addition, we provide advice to law firms in connection with internal issues and disputes with other firms.
In addition to the strength of our Litigation Practice generally, the Firm has an excellent reputation in a wide range of specialties, including banking and credit, capital markets, securities, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, tax, intellectual property and ERISA. The underlying representation that gives rise to claims against our law firm clients often involves these areas. We leverage our depth of knowledge, experience and expertise in such underlying subject matters to provide our clients with superior representation.
