With 650 lawyers in 11 offices nationwide, we strive to provide clients with unparalleled service in matters ranging from billion-dollar deals to complex class actions, across a broad spectrum of industries.
Our priorities are knowing our clients' business and providing the value they need so that we can be an integral part of their success. Clients choose us for our sophisticated yet efficient approach to handling their most important business transactions, litigation and government affairs efforts.
Our 160-plus year history is marked by service to the public and the bar and innovating for our clients. Today, we combine a comprehensive range of traditional legal practices with significant national roles in such practices as class action defense, corporate and securities, government relations, health care, intellectual property, insurance, investment management, private equity, bankruptcy, energy, environmental, education and communications. We also remain committed to our long tradition of handling pro bono work and taking on unpopular causes.
Experienced, hands-on lawyers lead our matters and are supported by younger lawyers and legal assistants. We strive to employ teams, technology and resources in a fashion that best meets our clients’ needs while offering a highly competitive cost structure.
Our first year associates spend four months in our nationally recognized development program, which embraces the belief that, while the best learning comes from doing, our clients should not bear the cost associated with the early learning of new associates. Because of that, our first years are not expected to bill work during the program. Led by our partners, the training emphasizes the need for associates to understand the business contexts related to client problems and teaches the skills needed to solve them effectively.
Our firm is not only the people who currently work in our offices across the country but also all those who used to work here. Our alumni are part of our history and our future. We have developed a firm wide alumni program, the Drinker Biddle Alumni Network, to offer our alumni a dynamic forum to network with former colleagues, participate in alumni and other social events, take advantage of complimentary CLE opportunities, external job postings, other professional development tools and more. Our alumni have forged diverse career paths and taken on new challenges after having left the firm and we remain proud of our association with all of our alumni. We are delighted to maintain contact and strong relationships with so many of them. Our alumni can reconnect and stay in touch with us through our Drinker Biddle Network website at www.drinkerbiddlealumni.com.
