Member Firm Profile

Nixon Peabody LLP is recognized as a “Global 100” law firm—one of the largest in the world. With 800 attorneys collaborating across major practice areas in 17 cities, including Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York, Rochester, San Francisco, Shanghai, Silicon Valley, and Washington, DC, the firm’s size, diversity, and advanced technological resources enable it to offer comprehensive legal services to individuals and organizations of all sizes in local, state, national, and international matters. Our clients include emerging and middle-market businesses, national and multinational corporations, financial institutions, public entities, educational and not-for-profit institutions, and individuals.

While some firms possess litigators, few offer experienced and proven trial lawyers that keep clients trial-ready for any challenge across a broad spectrum of practices. And Nixon Peabody is one of the few firms with the experience and capability—and successful trial results—to serve as national trial counsel for clients who require a consistent approach to class action and aggregate litigation matters filed in multiple states.

Starting on day one, our clients are paired with courtroom veterans from Nixon Peabody’s trial team (NP Trial) who have a proven record of success trying cases to verdict in some of the most challenging venues. Our dedicated trial team provides early input on case strategy and contributes to the client’s case through all aspects of the life cycle until the matter is resolved. The unique approach of NP Trial not only keeps clients protected in and out of the courtroom, it offers the most efficient and effective means possible to reach a successful outcome—so our clients can get back to business.

Our diverse people and points of view allow us to attract the best people, and provide a rich and stimulating work environment that fosters innovation and a high-performance culture. Our atmosphere of mutual respect has helped Nixon Peabody earn recognition as a top employer. The firm has been ranked among the “Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity” (Multicultural Law Magazine 2009) and has earned the highest rating (100%) by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality in corporate America. Nixon Peabody was recognized by FORTUNE magazine as one of the “FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For®” in 2008, 2007, and 2006.
