Freshfields is a leading global law firm with over 275 years’ experience advising the world’s most prestigious corporations and financial institutions. We pride ourselves on being a top-tier litigation department with a unique combination of subject-matter knowledge, local presence and strategic foresight. 

The Freshfields litigation team represents a diverse set of US and global clients, across numerous industries and sectors, who face billions of dollars in potential exposure. Our clients include many of the world’s most recognizable brands and our roster continues to grow as clients increasingly find themselves in need of sophisticated counsel. 

Our team of attorneys brings efficient and innovative solutions to our clients’ most pressing legal challenges. As a critical component of the world’s premier international litigation practice, our US litigators routinely handle complex multijurisdictional and cross-border matters and are alert to the specific concerns and collateral consequences of disputes in non-US regions as well as with global regulators. 

We have unrivalled experience defending businesses across a range of industries, and by leveraging our 800-strong global litigation team we excel in complex cases that span multiple jurisdictions within and outside the United States. Our team includes nine former senior litigators from the Department of Justice and United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and senior counsel from the Department of Defense, National Security Agency, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, and the Office of the White House Counsel who together have decades of experience taking dozens of federal and state trials to verdict—an invaluable weapon in securing the best outcomes for our clients.
