The nearly 300 attorneys in Wilson Elser’s New York City, White Plains and Garden City offices make up our New York Metro presence. The greatest single concentration of attorneys firmwide, we live in the same communities, practice in the same courts and split our office time based on where and when our clients need us most. Indeed, the seamless nature of these three offices – strategically located in and around the country’s most vibrant center of commerce – allows cases to be staffed in the most efficient manner and takes full advantage of our broad base of local talent (see our office capabilities for White Plains and Garden City).

Comprising the largest portion of our “New York Metro” presence, the New York City office is home to more than 200 attorneys whose collective skills cross every major practice of law.

Wilson Elser traces its beginnings to the opening of its New York City office more than 40 years ago when its attorneys focused exclusively on insurance litigation. Today, it is one of 40 offices nationwide and has grown to include more than 200 attorneys who provide a full breadth of legal services to our clients.

We routinely draw on the collective experience resident among our own office attorneys, the balance of those throughout the New York Metropolitan region as well as our colleagues across the broader firm. Wilson Elser’s national practice team structure, leveraging the benefits of technology, makes it possible for one point of contact to marshal any or all of the resources our clients require to advance even their most ambitious legal objectives.

Wilson Elser is the preeminent defense litigation firm in the United States. At any given time, our more than 1,000 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 107 in the Am Law 200 and 57th in the National Law Journal’s NLJ 500.
