Law Firm Overview
White & Case, founded in New York in 1901, has lawyers in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Our clients are public and privately held commercial businesses and financial institutions, as well as governments and state-owned entities, involved in sophisticated corporate and financial transactions and complex dispute resolution proceedings.
International practice is the foundation of our firm, and we have been involved in transactions in virtually every corner of the world. Our commitment to each region of the world is substantial. We have a critical mass of U.S., English, and domestic lawyers throughout the world who are either native to or fully integrated in the regions where they are based.
White & Case is distinguished not only by the depth and scope of its legal advisory services, but also by unmatched experience in the international arena, particularly in providing legal advisory services to, and in, developing or emerging countries. The Firms lawyers have decades of experience in multijurisdictional issues in numerous legal systems — some well established, some in their infancy — as well as in transitional economic and political systems. Consequently, we are known for unusual effectiveness in helping clients accomplish their objectives in environments others find daunting and unfamiliar.
Our knowledge, like our clients interests, transcends geographic boundaries. All of our clients have access to the capabilities of our lawyers, wherever they are based. As a single partnership, White & Case functions as an integrated team. Our lawyers are linked by constant interaction and an electronic infrastructure that allows us to bring the Firms wealth of experience and all its global resources to bear on clients most demanding business and legal issues — promptly and efficiently.
On a daily basis, our clients are involved in undertakings documented under four or five governing laws and of interest to as many taxing authorities in transactions involving principals and lenders from a dozen countries or in disputes involving assets in multiple countries. We move quickly, efficiently and with substantial knowledge of the differing terrains to complete deals, mitigate problems, obtain information and resolve complexities simultaneously in many places and across numerous dimensions.
