Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

What does success look like for you? At Davis Wright Tremaine, we never lose sight of that question.

The answer will be different for every client and every matter and will change with your business circumstances. You may need a merger completed under extraordinary time constraints. You may want an employment issue resolved before it generates publicity. You may want to pursue an IP infringement claim as aggressively as possible or achieve a restructuring that creatively maximizes tax advantages.

Across our nine offices in the U.S. and Shanghai, we deliver value that includes not just best-in-class legal service but also business insightuser-friendliness and flawless support. A full-service firm, we supplement depth and strength in the core legal functions of litigation, business transactions, intellectual property, and employment with nationally ranked, broadly based teams focused on a number of highly regulated industries—including communications, media, financial services, health care, energy, food and beverage, and restaurants. Our First Amendment litigation group is particularly renowned for its leading role in many of the country’s most important and cutting-edge cases.

Our innovation initiatives are led by DWT De Novo, a cross-functional team that combines systems design, process improvement, technology, data analytics, and alternative staffing models to help make the legal function more strategic and to improve the client experience. Davis Wright Tremaine lawyers partner closely with the DWT De Novo team to deliver service that is modern, tech-savvy and customized to each client’s needs and preferences.

Since its founding in the early 1900s in Seattle, Washington, Davis Wright Tremaine has continued to grow and change in response to the needs of its clients. Today the firm is organized by practice industry groups, and offers a wide range of legal services to regional, national and international clients through offices in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Washington D.C., New York and Shanghai, China.
