Since our start in New York City over 150 years ago, we’ve played a part in some of the most significant transactions shaping the American economy. Our lawyers have advised the country’s most prominent and storied financial institutions, corporations, and other clients from the beginning—and our legacy of innovation continues to this day.

From our offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC, we counsel clients on their highest-stakes litigation matters, most complex financial transactions and headline-grabbing corporate deals. From advising key players in the country’s highest-profile bankruptcies, to helping secure financing for complex renewable energy and other infrastructure projects from coast to coast, we're known for our strengths in multiple practices across offices.

Our lawyers are consistently recognized with the highest rankings in Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation, and other US directories, and our strong performance is regularly featured in The American Lawyer, which ranks Milbank 3rd among all elite US law firms in its most recent “A-List.”
