It’s more than what you do: it’s how you do it. Across sectors and borders, in board rooms and courtrooms, we measure our success by yours. And in our interactions, we commit to making your O’Melveny experience as satisfying as the outcomes we help you achieve. Our greatest accomplishment is ensuring that you never have to choose between premier lawyering and exceptional service. So, tell us. What do you want to achieve?
Whether we’re connecting clients to new business opportunities, collaborating on strategies to push through their obstacles, or trading ideas for maximizing value, our clients’ business goals are what set our agenda. We thrive on finding new ways to help our clients solve problems and reach objectives, whether we are counseling companies at the leading edge of the clean energy or life sciences industries, helping investors access capital in tight credit markets, advising financial institutions on strategies for adapting to changing Wall Street regulations, or defending Fortune 500 firms against novel theories of liability.
It’s an approach that comes naturally to us, and always has. At our core, you’ll find a dedication to excellence, a drive to lead and innovate, and a deep sense of civic responsibility. These characteristics—established by our founders—have anchored us for 138 years, and remain every bit as important to who we are today.
With approximately 800 lawyers on three continents, and strong cultural ties to all our locations, O’Melveny is both local and global—an international law firm experienced in everything from the fine print of a municipal zoning law to the intricacies of an international infrastructure deal. Collaboration thrives among our 18 offices.
Our award-winning litigation team—one of only three named a winner, finalist, or honorable mention recipient every year in The American Lawyer’s 20-year history of biannually honoring market-leading litigation departments—is renowned for reducing clients’ exposure and risk, disposing of cases early, and developing inventive strategies that lead to groundbreaking results. Our premier corporate team, recognized among The American Lawyer‘s 2022 “Dealmakers of the Year,” has an established record of completing landmark deals—from record-setting acquisitions and offerings to high-profile chapter 11 proceedings. With our tradition of public service, we have former White House officials and Department of Justice prosecutors ready to offer invaluable insights into political agendas, policymaking decisions, and regulatory trends. And our more than a dozen industry teams fuse all these exceptional abilities with a deep understanding of the intricacies of how, where, and why our clients do business.
We also understand that to realize our fullest potential—and to achieve the best results for our clients—we must connect all our people to a common purpose in an environment where everyone can succeed. As a firm we are committed to increasing the number of diverse attorneys at the partnership level and in leadership roles, providing clients with a wider range of perspectives and greater innovation.
We appreciate the recognition our work and culture earn us because it reflects our commitment to both our clients and our people. O’Melveny has for eleven consecutive years ranked in the top tier of The American Lawyer’s law firm “A-List”—which recognizes “the best of the well-rounded best.”
