Opened at the firm’s founding in 1946, Cleary Gottlieb’s New York office is the nexus for many of our firm’s financial matters, including but not limited to corporate transactions, major investigations and litigation. 

Approximately 600 lawyers in this location work in a wide range of general and highly focused practice areas to represent both U.S. and international clients.

Reflecting the firm’s overall commitment to creating a seamlessly interwoven legal practice, our New York office is not departmentalized by specialty. Many lawyers have had international experience, including rotations in one or more of our offices around the world; they are fluent in managing international transactions and dispute resolutions and collaborate easily with global colleagues. All our lawyers handle a wide variety of assignments and work cooperatively to share abilities across practices and jurisdictions..
