Sullivan & Cromwell LLP
Sullivan & Cromwell LLP provides the highest quality legal advice and representation to clients around the world. The results we achieve have set us apart for nearly 130 years and become a model for the modern practice of law. Today, S&C is a leader in each of its core practice areas and in each of its geographic markets. The S&C 2008-2009 Review looks at our most significant work over the past two years. The Review is available in two formats, an online version and a PDF version.
Our success is the result of the quality of our lawyers, the most broadly and deeply trained collection of attorneys in the world. We work as a single partnership without geographic division. We hire the very best law school graduates and train them to be generalists within broad practice areas. We promote lawyers to partner almost entirely from among our own associates. The result is a partnership with a unique diversity of experience, exceptional professional judgment and a demonstrated history of innovation.
Clients of the Firm are nearly evenly divided between U.S. and non-U.S. entities. They include industrial and commercial companies, financial institutions, private funds, governments, educational, charitable and cultural institutions, and individuals, estates and trusts. Our client base is exceptionally diverse, a result of our extraordinary capacity to tailor work to specific client needs.
S&C comprises approximately 800 lawyers. They serve our clients around the world through a network of 12 offices, located in leading financial centers in Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States. We are headquartered in New York.
