National and Global Reach
Wilson Elser is the preeminent defense litigation firm in the United States.
At any given time, our more than 900 attorneys are engaged in some 100,000 defense and coverage matters, with many defending clients in various local, state and federal courts. Indeed, over more than four decades, our litigation, coverage and trial lawyers have gained a reputation for taking on and prevailing in the most challenging and technical cases, frequently “parachuting in” to assume unresolved matters from other law firms. Our success also derives from winning on our clients’ terms and rigorously adhering to their guidelines. We are ranked in the Am Law 200 and 53rd in the National Law Journal’s NLJ 500.

Culture of Collegiality
Forming teams with colleagues across the hall or across the country, we’re committed to delivering demonstrable value to our clients while advancing their most ambitious legal objectives. With a comprehensive roster of service areas firmwide, these cross-practice collaborations spawn innovative resolutions of our clients’ most complicated legal challenges. This is one of many reasons why Wilson Elser ranks in the Am Law 200, 54th on the National Law Journal 500 and has been named to Corporate Counsel’s list of “Go To” firms. Thriving in this “culture of collegiality,” many of our attorneys and staff members count their tenure here in decades, not years.

Proud Heritage
While Wilson Elser is proud of its heritage in insurance defense, our experience increasingly encompasses corporate and transactional and related practices. Our firm’s litigators are known to be among the most experienced in the country, if not the world. They are formidable advocates and trusted advisers who, individually and collectively, enjoy an enviable track record of success.
