White & Case began in 1901 with the founding of a single, two-room office in New York City's lower downtown financial district, where our lawyers dedicated themselves to the needs of the banking and finance community. As business has grown and diversified across the U.S., so have we. Today the Firm is engaged in practice areas across the entire spectrum of law, from offices in five of the country’s most significant commercial hubs – Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Palo Alto and Washington, DC – all of which play a vital role in an integrated global network that spans 27 countries.
With nearly 700 lawyers in North America, White & Case is able to handle the most complex, precedent-setting legal matters that businesses in America face – whether their legal implications end here in the U.S., or extend across jurisdictional borders.
We bring local depth and global breadth to bear in virtually every area of law affecting our corporate clients, who benefit from outstanding counsel in such areas as mergers & acquisitions, banking and financial services, commercial litigation, intellectual property, antitrust, arbitration, real estate, bankruptcy, equipment and facility finance, legislative reform, privatization, project finance, securities, sovereign law, environmental law, international trade, and labor and employment law.
We also provide private clients with superior advice on preserving and transferring personal wealth, and deliver global tax support in such areas as controversy, planning and legislation.
White & Case is among a select group of global law firms able to meet the cross-border and domestic needs of North America's most notable businesses, helping them to overcome their most difficult challenges and seize upon their most exciting opportunities.
