Why Bingham?

Because Bingham delivers global intelligence — as well as legal insight and business instinct — worldwide.

Global intelligence is the ability to view the world as a whole, to see connections as well as differences and to understand how leverage in one area can change the outcome worldwide. We deliver this kind of intelligence with lawyers in offices on three continents, anchored by major commitments in the world’s key financial centers. Bingham lawyers understand how capital markets fit together, how taxes shape global financial policy, how regulations compete and conflict, how litigation integrates with business objectives, and how cross-border legal strategies must coordinate. Bingham links you to a wide and deep bench of talent spanning multiple legal strengths and geographies. You benefit from a range of integrated perspectives from experienced, on-the-ground practitioners, broader analyses, and end-to-end solutions, worldwide.

Because only the most sophisticated law firms can handle the world’s most demanding matters.

As Bingham Chairman Jay Zimmerman has noted, “In the areas where we practice, we practice with the best.” Our lawyers guide clients through the global maze of markets, regulations and taxation with capabilities that span transactions, compliance, enforcement and litigation. We have won the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Tax (2013) and Investment Funds (2011). Best Lawyers and U.S. News & World Report have named us Law Firm of the Year in Securitization and Structured Finance Law (2013 and 2012) as well as Securities Litigation (2012). We are considered a global leader in insolvency and restructuring by the International Who's Who (2013). And our practice strength in the energy industry is underscored by Best Lawyers and U.S. News & World Report naming us Environmental Law Firm of the Year (2011).

Because the best firms create a workplace that becomes a competitive advantage.

We have built a unique work environment — one that is frequently a tipping point in a lawyer’s decision to move to Bingham. Our workplace is the foundation of a worldwide culture that seeks out and embraces the diverse talents of its lawyers, professionals who select Bingham based on our firm’s character as well as its momentum. These practitioners are respected for who they are, the quality and breadth of their ideas, and the perspectives they bring to the work they do. And they are supported by a global team that shares their focus on one overriding goal: delivering great work for our clients. Recognition as one of FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” every year since 2005 is a tangible affirmation that great work for clients begins with a great workplace in which to thrive.

Because a global law firm must know how to transform change into momentum for clients.

Driven by constantly changing markets, competitors and technologies, our global clients continually evolve and innovate. So do we. Our ability to respond strategically, reshaping ourselves quickly and going wherever a client needs us, has even been documented in a Harvard Law School case study. By embracing change, anticipating shifts in client needs, and breaking down traditional geographic barriers and practice silos, Bingham has built a new kind of full-service legal platform. Financially strong, globally agile and values-driven, this platform continues to attract top-tier lawyers and provides the scope, responsiveness and connectivity to handle the most complex matters of global significance.
