From Southern California beginnings in 1890, Gibson Dunn has grown to a global law firm providing comprehensive services across borders, jurisdictions and legal disciplines. Our more than 1,200 lawyers are located in 20 offices in major cities throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America. We celebrated our 125th anniversary in 2015.
We are known for excellence in the practice of law and are committed to providing the very highest quality of legal services. Representing our clients with passion and a drive to succeed, we combine a respect for tradition with a forward-looking emphasis on innovation. We are sought out for the exceptional creativity and problem-solving ability of our lawyers, who continually look for visionary solutions to our clients’ legal issues. We never give up, we originate novel approaches, we make headlines and we change the law.
We represent the majority of the Fortune 100 and more than half of the Fortune 500 companies, invaluable experience from which all of our clients benefit. Found in all major industries, they range from some of the world’s largest multinationals to start-up ventures and emerging growth companies. We also represent private equity firms, sovereign wealth funds, commercial and investment banks, other financial institutions, government entities, partnerships and individuals.
Time, growth and achievements have not, however, diminished our culture and a concern for the legal and societal worlds in which we live and operate. Deeply held values of collegiality, integrity, mutual respect, and a balance of ideas across the political spectrum sustain our success in delivering exceptional work. So too does our longstanding and greatly valued tradition of service to the communities that have been such a part of our success. Our continuing commitments to pro bono, diversity and community service are and will remain integral parts of our firm. We have been privileged to work on many matters that profoundly affected our society and the civil rights of its citizens.
