Our Firm

Discover our eight US offices

Although each has a unique identity and specific strengths, our eight US offices work closely together, along with our global network of 44 offices in 30 countries.   

Our Boston lawyers work on cutting-edge, substantive projects with high-profile clients.

We have deep experience in the life sciences and healthcare industries, and regularly represent biotech and medical device companies. We address the critical legal issues at the heart of pharmaceutical companies and other innovators.

Our White Collar group focuses on criminal and civil litigation and investigations, including cross-border matters. In White Collar defense, we typically handle complex matters relating to the False Claims Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and criminal antitrust, as well as tax and securities. In civil litigation, we have deep experience in class actions, probate and antitrust matters, US and international arbitrations, private equity and other complex commercial disputes.

Our intellectual property group delivers meaningful solutions for high-profile clients in patent prosecutions and litigation, both in the US and Europe, as well as strategic patent counseling to global life sciences and technology clients through every stage of the patent cycle.

On the transactional side of the house, our Debt Finance lawyers represent lenders in cash flow as well as asset- based transactions across a wide range of industries, including technology, healthcare, retail, professional services, food and beverage, manufacturing, utilities, business services, aerospace, sports, entertainment, logistics and education, to support transactions that include acquisitions, growth capital investments, refinancings, recapitalizations, restructurings, and special situations.

Our newest US office opened in June 2018 in Chicago. Opening an office in a large, talent-rich legal market like Chicago is an important step as we pursue our 2020 strategy to grow in the United States and expand our disputes, Debt Finance, Restructuring, Private Equity and M&A practices. Chicago and the Midwest are important markets for a number of White & Case clients, and home to a broad combination of mature and emerging industries that will benefit from our global experience and capabilities. We expect the office to expand to over 100 lawyers and become a full service location over the next couple of years.

With more than 5,000 energy firms in its area, Houston is the global capital of the oil & gas, energy and energy transition industry. What we offer in the Houston office is unique: colleagues with decades of experience in the Texas legal market, combined with the global reach of White & Case's energy practice. Together with the Firm's network of lawyers around the world, our Houston office is well placed to assist both US and foreign-based clients on legal matters in nearly any jurisdiction where our clients conduct business. With steady expansion over the last five years, our now 100+ lawyer Houston office plans to continue its growth for many years to come.


Our Los Angeles office is energetic, exciting and on the cutting edge when it comes to performing some of today’s most relevant and newsworthy legal work. The work here is fulfilling and challenging, involving pan-office and multijurisdictional issues. You will meet—on the phone and in person—clients located on just about every continent. In serving these clients, you will work hand in hand with our lawyers throughout our network of offices worldwide. As our case and deal teams are staffed efficiently, you will get substantial experience early in your career writing motions, drafting documents, taking and defending depositions, talking with clients, participating in closings and even going to court to make an argument. Your learning curve will be steep, and the experience will be great, and you will have mentors and professional development programs to guide you along the way.

Our Miami office is uniquely positioned to assist clients in meeting their most critical legal and business challenges—in Florida and throughout the world. Our lawyers regularly advise multinational corporations, financial institutions and governmental entities in complex domestic and cross-border corporate and financial transactions and dispute resolution proceedings.

The Miami office has been awarded numerous "Top Dealmaker" awards and recently received "Litigation Department of the Year" recognition.

Our Miami office is consistently recognized by The Best Lawyers in America and Chambers across multiple practice areas. This recognition is important because when you are just starting your career, you want to know that you are working with and learning from the very best lawyers. Our lawyers provide US and global clients with a wide range of services, and our Litigation, Corporate and Financial Restructuring and Insolvency practices, in particular, are some of the most widely respected in the industry. As the gateway to Latin America—which is about a third of our practice—we excel in offering special capabilities in capital markets transactions, project development and finance, privatization and mergers and acquisitions. Our Latin America practice is regularly identified as top tier with accolades that include "Best Infrastructure Law Firm in Latin America," "Latin America Power Deal of the Year" and "Latin America Project Finance Deal of the Year."


Working in the New York office allows you to immediately feel the energy and buzz that comes with being in the heart of an integrated global law firm. Whether you’re on a conference call with clients and colleagues in half a dozen time zones or hearing multiple languages spoken as you walk down the hall, you're constantly reminded of our One Firm approach.

A significant portion of our practice is focused on New York and US businesses, but that’s where the similarity to other New York firms ends. Why? Because our global resources mean we can deliver work that crosses borders and involves complex legal and business issues in multiple legal jurisdictions. We have more “feet on the ground,” more top-tier global offices and a greater ability to meet our clients’ needs wherever they may be. That’s what being a truly global law firm means. That’s what being a White & Case lawyer means.


Our Silicon Valley office is not the typical law firm. We are entrepreneurial, nimble and agile—a dynamic complement to our worldwide platform. Our office offers a fast-paced environment where motivated people with razor-sharp analytical skills and keen intuition excel. It is a testament to the clients we serve—companies on the leading edge of technology and research—as well as the attitude we take toward client service. We don’t merely apply legal conventions; we break new ground just as our clients do, and that makes our office one of the most exciting places to start your career.

Our Silicon Valley office serves as the hub of White & Case’s Technology practice. Our lawyers advise companies of all sizes in the technology sector (hardware, software, Internet technology and semiconductor, to name a few). We counsel clients in the areas of patent, trademark, copyright, technology transfers, trade secret and trade regulation. We also have an active practice advising and representing clients in Section 337 actions before the International Trade Commission (ITC), which involves the importation of goods in violation of US intellectual property rights.

Our Silicon Valley Corporate/M&A team is an important component of our global practice. Our lawyers provide a broad range of corporate and business services to publicly held corporations, private companies, private equity firms and venture capitalists. We are very active in domestic and cross-border transactions—major mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, equity investments and other significant corporate matters. We also counsel businesses in connection with their ongoing contractual relationships with domestic and international customers, suppliers and distributors.


Our Washington, DC office offers unique opportunities for a legal career. You will help global enterprises, sovereign states, and individuals navigate complex legal issues, advising them on domestic and international issues and aiding them in the successful resolution of a wide range of challenges and disputes. Whether you are helping to defend a company against a high-profile investigation or claim or advancing the claims of a party to an international arbitration, your work will be thought-provoking and often groundbreaking. Many of our Washington, DC lawyers have had invaluable, high-level government experience that they will share with you, and you will be working not only with them but with our lawyers around the world on six continents.
