Litigation and dispute resolution

Mayer Brown’s Litigation practice has the intellectual depth, creativity and geographic scope to successfully resolve virtually any type of legal dispute in the Americas, Europe and Asia. In an era of globalisation, where major legal disputes often cross national borders, we offer access to more than 450 litigators worldwide.

In 2012, Mayer Brown was named one of the top six litigation departments among the 200 largest US law firms by The American Lawyer in its prestigious ‘Litigation Department of the Year’ report. ‘Mayer Brown impressed us with its range of far-reaching victories,’ The American Lawyer said, offering particular praise for the firm’s Supreme Court win in AT&T Mobility v Concepcion. ‘We’ve seen some sweeping pro-business US Supreme Court rulings of late, but there’s a good argument that no decision will have more impact on the business community.’

In addition, The American Lawyer noted that the firm ‘uses its early warning system — bringing its appellate lawyers into cases at the outset — to win high-profile suits for clients ranging from AT&T Mobility to YouTube to Rahm Emanuel.’ By combining intellectual firepower with trial and appellate advocacy, Mayer Brown enjoys great success in handling complex, high-stakes litigation for a wide variety of clients around the world.

As one of the largest law practices in the world, our services cover a variety of litigation disciplines, and our litigators have been repeatedly recognised as leaders in their fields by publications such as the National Law Journal, Chambers USA, Legal Times and Legal 500.

As one of the largest law firms in the world, our internationally recognised lawyers have the experience and resources to successfully tackle problems across a variety of service areas and industries.
