At Brown Rudnick, we combine ingenuity with experience to achieve great outcomes for our clients. We deliver partner-driven service; we incentivize our lawyers to collaborate in the client’s best interest; and we put excellence before scale, focusing on practices such as life sciences, corporate restructuring, M&A, white collar defense, international disputes and intellectual property, where we are recognized leaders. Founded more than 70 years ago, Brown Rudnick has more than 250 lawyers and government relations professionals across the United States and Europe, with offices in key financial centers. Beyond the United States and Europe, we serve clients in the Middle East, North Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America.

Main areas of practice: With relentless focus on the clients’ objectives, Brown Rudnick provides business-focused solutions that address today’s ever-changing, ever-demanding competitive marketplace. Assembling cross-disciplinary teams to suit clients’ specific needs, Brown Rudnick focuses its attention on those practice areas and industries where the firm is, or can be, a recognized leader, including: antitrust; bankruptcy and corporate restructuring; complex litigation and arbitration; corporate, securities and M&A; distressed debt and claims trading; emerging companies; energy, utilities and environmental; executive compensation and ERISA; finance; funds; government contracts; government law and strategies; health care; intellectual property; intellectual property litigation; international dispute resolution; life sciences; real estate; tax; white collar defense and government investigations.

An important strategic focus includes representing hedge funds both domestically and internationally. Brown Rudnick serves fund clients in a wide spectrum of investment activities such as fund transactions, distressed debt and claims trading, portfolio company acquisitions and dispositions, and shareholder activism. When representing funds as bondholders in major domestic or international corporations, Brown Rudnick, unlike many of its competitors, has the ability to be directly adverse to leading commercial banks that may be at odds with bondholders in the capital structure. This has allowed the firm to occupy a key strategic position in the legal market: to act conflict-free against these major financial institutions in complex global litigation and other high-value matters. Brown Rudnick also differentiates itself through representation of private equity and venture funds and venture-backed companies across the US and throughout Europe. Fueled in part by the needs of clients in the technology and life sciences sectors, Brown Rudnick’s prowess in closing complex crossborder acquisitions and financings is notable for a firm of its size. Brown Rudnick drives life-cycle client relationships by providing all necessary strategic advice, from company organisation through

all stages of a client’s growth and financing to the client’s final sale or IPO and its ongoing needs as a public company. The firm’s active patent practice,

licensing and IP litigation team complement this slate of services, helping clients to protect, defend and leverage their key business assets.

Brown Rudnick’s litigation and arbitration team, with a robust US and international presence, provides a full range of litigation, arbitration and mediation services to clients around the world. The firm represents clients in a wide variety of commercial disputes, including financial, regulatory and

fraud investigations. Specific areas of focus include restructuring and insolvency, mass torts, real estate, telecommunications, government contracts, construction, intellectual property, international arbitration

and white collar defence and government investigations. The firm is regularly arrayed against many of the world’s most prominent financial institutions

and investment banks, in some of the most contentious engagements on behalf of bondholders, creditors, equity holders and other investors, foreign liquidators and tort claimants.
