Squire Patton Boggs:

We combine sound legal counsel with a deep knowledge of our clients’ businesses to resolve their legal challenges. We care about the quality of our services, the success of our clients and the relationships that are forged through those successes.

Breadth and Depth

Our client base spans every type of business, both private and public, worldwide. We advise a diverse mix of clients, from Fortune 100 and FTSE 100 corporations to emerging companies and from individuals to local and national governments. In the private sector, we provide the full range of legal advice required to implement practical strategies and resolve disputes. In the public sector, we counsel governments on privatization of whole industries and on establishment of regulatory systems under which new private businesses can compete. We also serve the regional needs of the countries and cities we call home.

Whatever is needed, we are able to deliver the seamless cross-practice, cross-border and industry-specific support that clients require for success in today’s competitive markets.

Client Focus

Clients expect knowledge of their business as well as high-quality legal skills from their law firms. Our combination of legal and industry experience allows us to better analyze client requirements and develop the right approach for the matter at hand. Clients receive tested insight and guidance from a team that understands their needs and is able to offer tailored solutions.

We are dedicated to our clients’ success, and their satisfaction shows it. We continue to advise successor organizations of clients that we represented at our formation some 120 years ago.

Business Has No Borders

With offices in 21 countries on five continents, our global legal practice is in the markets where our clients do business. We also have strong working relationships with independent firms in Europe and Latin America.

Our extensive practice and industry knowledge is shared via one of the most robust technology platforms in the legal business, as well as ongoing rotation of lawyers to our offices around the world. In addition, we apply knowledge- and project-management tools to implement continual business process improvements and enhance the value of our legal services.

We encourage and manage processes and tools to improve pricing models, training and resource optimization, knowledge management and more, all centered on our core focus – delivering the services our clients want, when and where they want them and with the value they deserve.
