Practice Areas

A significant portion of our practice is focused on New York and US businesses, but that’s where the similarity to other New York firms ends. Why? Because our global resources mean we can deliver work that crosses borders and involves complex legal and business issues in multiple legal jurisdictions. We have more “feet on the ground,” more top-tier global offices and a greater ability to meet our clients’ needs wherever they may be. That’s what being a truly global law firm means. That’s what being a White & Case lawyer means.

Our New York practice areas include:

  • Antitrust
  • Asset Finance
  • Banking
  • Capital Markets
  • Commercial Litigation
  • Financial Restructuring and Insolvency
  • Intellectual Property
  • International Arbitration
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Pro Bono
  • Project Finance
  • Tax

Based on your preferences, you will have the option to rotate through either the Corporate or Litigation department or spend some time in each.
