Reed Smith LLP

Reed Smith represents many of the world’s leading companies in complex litigation and other high-stakes disputes, cross-border and other strategic transactions, and crucial regulatory matters.

With lawyers from coast-to-coast in the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom, continental Europe, Asia and the Middle East, our firm is known for its experience across a broad array of industry sectors. We counsel 28 of the top 30 U.S. banks and 10 of the world's 12 largest pharmaceutical companies.  Our shipping practice has been designated among the most preeminent in the world, and our advertising law practice is regarded as among the legal industry’s finest.
Reed Smith has grown in large part because of its uncommon commitment to delivering high-quality service and developing long-term client relationships. Our approach to service begins by understanding our clients’ business goals. We then work to develop the resources necessary to help achieve them. 

Based on the results of a survey of large and Fortune 1000 in-house counsel, the BTI Consulting Group ranked Reed Smith among the top 5 firms for client service. We have established a state-of-the-industry Client Evaluation Program, and have been identified as one of the few large law firms with a strategic focus on client satisfaction.

Our work has been noted by industry observers. The Lawyer named us its runner-up for U.S. Law Firm of the Year, and The American Lawyer named us a finalist for its Litigation Department of the Year in the product liability category. The Deal highlighted our commercial restructuring and bankruptcy practice as the fourth most active.  Asian-Counsel named our Hong Kong office "Firm of the Year" in two categories, Commercial Transactions and M&A.
