We draw on deep knowledge and impeccable credentials to advance your interests.

Our attorneys are your peers and trusted partners, having represented over 25 Fortune 500 companies and over 15 in the Fortune 100. Over half of our lawyers have practiced at Am Law 100 firms, and we count two former federal prosecutors, a partner with extensive DOJ Tax experience, and a Marine Judge Advocate General among our ranks. Our academic achievements are significant, with two-thirds of our team graduating from Top 25 law schools and half completing clerkships for federal district court and appellate judges. Our partners continue to shape our profession, with many having taught as adjunct professors at Top 25 law schools.

We guide and fight for you in your highest-profile, highest-risk litigation. We are experienced at leading and trying cases, which makes our attorneys formidable advocates when you face daunting challenges. Our lawyers have defended clients in white-collar matters—from federal probes to internal investigations—that imperiled their reputations and put hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. We have helped clients survive multidistrict litigation involving thousands of liability claims and have earned the largest bench trial verdict in Indiana history. Importantly, we are respected by other lawyers and law firms who call on us to join them in large-scale litigation, both in courts around the country and specifically in the Northern District of Indiana, the Southern District of Indiana, and Indiana state courts.

We bring our broad, multi-industry experience to bear to resolve your critical business challenges. Our clients compete in virtually every industry, from manufacturers of automobiles and medical devices, to global banks and insurers, to consumer goods and food conglomerates, to online marketplaces and media giants. We draw on this experience to deliver smart, cost-effective business solutions to established global leaders and early-stage industry disruptors alike.
