Brown Rudnick LLP

THE FIRM

Brown Rudnick, an international law firm with offices in the United States and Europe, represents clients from around the world in high-stakes litigation, international arbitration and complex business transactions. Clients include public and private corporations, multinational Fortune 100 businesses and start-up enterprises. The firm also represents investors, as well as official and ad hoc creditors’ committees in today’s largest corporate restructurings, both domestically and abroad. Founded more than 60 years ago, Brown Rudnick has approximately 230 lawyers providing advice and services across key areas of the law. The firm regularly serves clients in Europe, the United States and North America, the Middle East, North Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. With its Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest, the firm has created an innovative model combining its pro bono, charitable giving and community volunteer efforts. Brown Rudnick is a founding member of the Law Firm Network, an association of law firms with affiliates in more than 40 countries.

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK

With relentless focus on the clients’ objectives, Brown Rudnick provides business-centered solutions that address today’s ever-changing, ever-demanding competitive marketplace. Assembling cross-disciplinary teams to suit clients’ specific needs, Brown Rudnick features practice areas and industries where the firm is a recognised leader, including: bankruptcy and corporate restructuring; complex litigation and international arbitration; corporate, securities and M&A; distressed debt and claims trading; emerging companies; energy, utilities and environmental; finance; funds; government contracts; government law and strategies; health care; intellectual property; intellectual property litigation; life sciences; real estate; tax; white-collar defence and government investigations.

CLIENTS

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 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 throughout Europe and across the US. Fueled in part by the needs of clients in the technology and life sciences sectors, Brown Rudnick’s prowess in closing complex cross-border 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 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 defense 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.
