Practice Overview

Litigation

Cravath litigators devise creative solutions to complex issues, often achieving precedent‑setting results for clients. Named “Most Innovative Law Firm for Legal Expertise” by the Financial Times in 2018, Cravath stands out “for its persistence and ability to help define industries,” and we stand among the few top firms of choice for clients facing their most difficult and critical litigation.

Cravath trains generalist litigators with the tools to tackle complex cases from every angle. We see the broader picture, so we can devise and deliver creative approaches to the problem at hand, regardless of the subject matter, industry or client’s role in a particular dispute. The credibility and experience we bring to each matter and our preparation of each case from the outset as if it is going to trial gives us a strategic advantage in all steps of litigation. Our trial‑focused litigators know how to explain complex issues and technology simply and clearly without getting lost in the weeds.

We also work closely with clients to understand and appreciate their business objectives and culture in order to provide both short‑ and long‑term solutions. Cravath litigators are not just legal advisors—we are our clients’ partners in developing workable solutions to the wide range of issues they face.

As recognized by The American Lawyer, “Cravath stands out for its novel arguments” and our litigators consistently push beyond the “playbook” to develop a strategy that will deliver the best result for our client, even if it has never been used before.
