What we do

A benefit of working at Freshfields is having the opportunity to join a number of strong legal practices.

As a group, we tend to like the difficult and the international headline grabbing work.

We're good at complex, premium and cross-border work. And our large international footprint means our multi-jurisdictional regulatory capabilities are second to none.

In the United States, we concentrate our practices primarily on corporate and finance transactions, antitrust, competition and trade, tax, white collar and complex litigation and international arbitration. Our corporate practice focuses on multi jurisdictional mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions, while lawyers in our finance practice have extensive experience in structured finance, project finance, leveraged finance, institutional investment and capital markets.

The firm’s practice groups are organized on a global basis. Cross-border, multi-office teams are the norm at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. This creates opportunities for our US lawyers not only in our New York, Washington DC and Silicon Valley offices, but also in relevant practice groups across Europe and Asia.

In addition, Freshfields is strongly committed to the practice of pro bono legal work as an invaluable opportunity to give back to our communities, both global and local, in a way that leverages our unique professional skills as lawyers to help people in need.
