Our Firm

Founded in 1899, White and Williams LLP is a global reaching, multi-practice law firm with over 240 lawyers in nine offices. Clients include Fortune 500 and insurance companies, large corporations, and financial institutions as well as mid-market and small businesses, institutions of higher education and individuals. Our lawyers handle a wide array of complex litigation, transactions and regulatory matters.

White and Williams has a history of excellent client service and success in the courtroom. The firm has established longstanding client relationships, many spanning several decades. Our lawyers have earned national recognition for their trial prowess representing clients in high-stakes, complex litigation in both federal and state courts. White and Williams litigators represent clients in both corporate and commercial disputes including shareholder disputes, professional liability and healthcare as well as class actions, intellectual property, insurance coverage, reinsurance, product liability and toxic torts.

Progressive and forward-thinking, White and Williams has cultivated a substantial business department representing traditional business clients as well as start-ups and private equity firms. Our lawyers have a strong command of the transactional, regulatory and compliance issues many businesses face. The firm’s deep bench is well suited to counsel clients with entity formation, licensing, financing, contracts and strategic negotiations as well as governance, labor disputes, tax, intellectual property and real estate. Our lawyers are also well-adept in advising clients through mergers, acquisitions and restructuring.

White and Williams is a “right-size” firm offering clients the resources of a large firm with the flexibility of a smaller firm. Our lawyers utilize sophisticated software including trial support technology and legal research tools, while working within practice groups that operate similarly to a boutique law firm. Our clients have direct relationships with the lawyers who are handling their matters. In addition, the firm has established relationships with a global network of law firms, enhancing our ability to serve clients.

Throughout its long history, White and Williams has grown and developed progressive initiatives including its sustainable business practices, diversity and pro bono programs and highly-regarded Women’s Initiative. White and Williams is proud to be among the firms throughout the country to elect a female managing partner.

The firm is proud of the many partners who have served as federal and state court judges, members of Congress and the State Legislature, and in leadership positions in numerous bar and professional associations. White and Williams remains dedicated to the legal profession, the communities in which we live and the clients we serve.
