Pepper Hamilton LLP

Pepper Hamilton LLP counsels each client as if it were our only client.

With more than 425 lawyers in 13 offices across the United States, we use the unique skills and talents of our people, the breadth of our practices, and the depth of our experience to deliver powerful solutions to clients’ legal and business issues. The firm was founded in 1890.

Start closer to the right answer.® Our firm has grown from a two-person law office formed in Philadelphia to a large, sophisticated law firm with a national and international practice. While much about Pepper is new and different from its beginnings, we retain traditional values passed down through the decades: respect for the rule of law, pride in an excellent work product and commitment to the client's cause. Today, Pepper Hamilton is a diverse firm of men and women from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, united in these values.


Pepper Hamilton LLP is a limited liability partnership in which an ownership interest is held by a diverse group of partners including women, attorneys of color, members of the LGBT community and their allies, and attorneys with disabilities. The firm is committed to advancing diversity and inclusion and works continuously to expand and promote opportunities for all Pepper people.

Recognizing that diverse characteristics and talent enhance any organization, and that a national law firm must reflect our many different cultures and ideas, Pepper actively recruits and encourages the hiring, training and promotion of people from diverse backgrounds including women, members of the LGBT community, the disabled, people of color, as well as those with different socio-economic backgrounds.

All applicants are considered, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, color, religion, national origin, place of birth, non-job-related disability or any other legally protected status, and once employed by the firm, individuals are treated without regard to any of these criteria.
