Welcome to Robinson+Cole, an Am Law 200 firm serving regional, national, and international clients from nine offices throughout the Northeast, Florida, and California. Our 200-plus lawyers and other professionals share a simple, common goal: We’ll work hard to know you, your industry, and your business so that we can provide the service and representation that best fits your needs.

We cultivate deep relationships within our communities, the legal profession, and the industries we serve to envision "the whole picture" and to understand the factors that drive today's constantly changing world.

We share a rich history and culture of community involvement, pro bono service, celebration of diversity, and dedication to client service.  Since our founding in 1845, our past has molded us but it does not define us.  The connections we have today and will make tomorrow keep us looking to the future, refining our methods, and inventing new ways to serve you better.

Our clients range from Fortune 500 to start-up companies, as well as nonprofit and governmental organizations. To meet their changing needs, our legal services and locations have expanded over time. The strategies we propose are tailored to align with our clients' overall business needs, their risk tolerance, and their budget.
