Established in 1987 and the oldest Arizona branch of a national law firm, our Phoenix office combines Southwestern roots, national experience, and the firm’s global resources in serving local and national clients. Our practices include:
Complex commercial litigation and appellate advocacy
Government investigations and enforcement and white-collar criminal defense, led by a former US Attorney
Insurance coverage and bad faith defense as to a broad range of commercial and personal lines
Labor relations and employment matters
M&A and other strategic transactions, commercial relationships, and corporate organization, governance, and compliance
Federal, state, and local tax planning and controversies
We handle a wide variety of litigation matters, ranging from securities, professional liability, and intellectual property to public pension systems, school desegregation, and the representation of Native American tribes.
We are proud to be the first large law firm (and second law firm overall) certified by the City of Phoenix as a Phoenix Green Business Leader, and we were named 2017 Business of the Year by the Arizona Recycling Coalition. In addition to our commitment to pro bono legal services, we support many community and charitable efforts, including partnering with Treasures 4 Teachers to help Dunbar Elementary School, a nearby public school in need.
