In every representation, Morgan Lewis attorneys are committed to knowing and fully understanding each client’s specific business, industry environment, and legal concerns, with a focus on both immediate and long-term goals. Our regulatory and industry-focused practices such as Antitrust, Energy, Life Sciences, and Securities help clients craft and execute strategies to address legal, government, and policy challenges in today’s rapidly changing economic and regulatory environment.

Our international team of attorneys, patent agents, employee benefits advisors, regulatory scientists, and other specialists—nearly 3,000 professionals total—serves clients from locations in Beijing, Boston, Brussels, Chicago, Dallas, Frankfurt, Harrisburg, Houston, Irvine, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Palo Alto, Paris, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Princeton, San Francisco, Tokyo, Washington, D.C., and Wilmington.

If a client has a question, we’ll immediately find the person in our global network with the answer. If there’s a shift in the legal landscape, we’re on top of it, and our clients will be too. We focus on both immediate and long-term goals with our clients, harnessing our resources from strategic hubs of commerce, law, and government across North America and in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
