Mishcon de Reya New York LLP opened in 2010 with a small group of lawyers having two things in common: a proven track record in New York City and a desire to create a new kind of law firm in the city.
This approach has attracted some of New York's finest attorneys to join the practice. Since 2010, the Firm has expanded considerably. We have 3 Partners and 6 other attorneys with capabilities across ten different practice areas: Complex Civil Litigation, IP and Patent Litigation, International Arbitration, Internal Investigations, White Collar Criminal and Regulatory Defense, Fraud and Asset Recovery, Hedge and Mutual Funds, and Employment Litigation. With this growth, our approach has remained the same. We fiercely guard our clients' interests and offer flexibility in what can be an overly rigid profession. We avoid traditional models and act for plaintiffs and defendants, institutions and individuals, with very low levels of conflict. We are trial lawyers. Our attorneys are experienced advocates at both the trial and appellate levels. We conduct criminal and civil trials and have argued scores of appeals in a number of federal and state Courts.
The Firm offers a wide range of alternative fee arrangements that work best for the unique situations in which clients find themselves. Mishcon New York also has excellent relationships with litigation funders both in the U.S. and U.K. and expertise in securing the best such arrangements for their clients.
Many of these influences stem from Mishcon de Reya London, which celebrated the 75th anniversary of its founding in 2012, the same year in which it was recognized by its peers as U.K. Law Firm of the Year not once, but twice. Both practices have a strong litigation heritage, representing a diverse portfolio of clients in more than 60 countries with more than 200 litigators across New York and London.
