A Global Presence

The greatest change we've experienced in the last decade has been the internationalization of our practice - a phenomenon that has touched every area of the firm. In addition to the high volume of work we perform in our New York, Washington and Wilmington offices for foreign clients, we have established ourselves in Canada, Europe and the Far East with offices in Toronto, London, Tokyo, Beijing and Hong Kong.

New York: Since the firm's founding, our New York office has remained our largest, serving as the hub of the firm's activities. Located in midtown Manhattan, the New York practice is organized into nine departments: Corporate, Litigation, Bankruptcy, Entertainment, Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation, Environmental, Personal Representation, Real Estate and Taxation.

Washington: Our Washington, D.C. office is a distinguished practice that is home to powerhouse litigators, trial lawyers and high-end corporate and communications attorneys. Our Washington office attorneys are leaders in antitrust litigation, IP and patent litigation, product liability litigation, securities enforcement and litigation, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, internal investigations, white collar crime, class actions, appellate matters and communications and technology. The office provides a full range of legal services through seamless integration with our firm's extensive global resources and legal expertise. The team works closely with our New York team and can bring to bear all the resources of our New York and other offices when necessary. This collaboration is central to our ability to deliver stellar results to clients across all their high-risk, high-value litigation and corporate matters.

Wilmington: Wilmington, Delaware is widely regarded as the seat of modern U.S. corporate law. Since the office was founded in 2009, our Wilmington office focuses primarily on corporate litigation and counseling, which complements the firm's full-service capabilities offered through its other offices. The resident partner in Wilmington is a former Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, who presided over some of the most important and precedent-setting matters of corporate law during his tenure.

Toronto: Located in the center of Toronto's financial district, our Toronto office practices only U.S. law and works closely with leading Canadian law firms as appropriate to provide seamless counsel to our clients. Our Toronto-based lawyers work with their colleagues in New York to help clients with cross-border capital markets transactions, M&A, corporate governance, tax, employee benefits, litigation and arbitration, antitrust, intellectual property, project finance, restructuring, FCPA, environmental and other regulatory and compliance issues across a wide range of industries.

London: Our London office focuses on three of the firm's core corporate practices, adapted to the European marketplace, including capital markets transactions involving European issuers, private equity/private M&A transactions in Europe and cross-border M&A transactions. The office is an integral part of the firm's global network, reflecting the pre-eminent role of London in the world's financial markets.

Greater China - Hong Kong and Beijing: Paul, Weiss has one of the most dynamic and longstanding practices in Greater China. The Hong Kong and Beijing offices advise U.S., international and Chinese companies in mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital, outbound investments, foreign direct investment and the establishment of joint ventures, infrastructure development, project finance, acquisition finance, capital markets, corporate governance, internal investigations, and reorganizations and restructurings. We also assist Chinese and international companies in resolving disputes and handling regulatory matters that arise in conjunction with their U.S. operations. These offices represent clients in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand and India.

Tokyo: Paul, Weiss has one of the premier practices in Japan, advising many of Japan's most prominent trading companies, financial institutions, and telecommunications, computer and industrial companies on transactions, disputes and other matters. With support from the New York, Washington and London offices, the firm also advises Japanese clients on significant litigation and trade dispute matters.
