With approximately 1,100 attorneys in offices around the world, Weil operates according to the “one firm” principle, allowing us to bring the right mix of firm-wide skill and local-market presence to deliver the coordinated legal advice necessary to help our clients achieve their sophisticated goals and objectives. Weil’s established geographic footprint allows us to partner with clients wherever they do business. Our attention to client service rests upon a few core values: a comprehensive understanding of our clients’ businesses and culture, a thorough focus on our clients’ short- and long-term objectives, and an unwavering commitment to helping clients solve problems in the most efficient way.
Weil is a leader in the marketplace and is known as one of the few antitrust destination firms. We offer global solutions to our clients’ Antitrust/Competition transactional needs with one of the largest, most diversified and well-respected practices in the world. Trusted with many of the largest mergers in the last two decades, we bring to bear an impressive combination of law firm and public-sector experience both in the U.S. and UK. We routinely coordinate multi-jurisdictional filings to assure maximum chances for swift approval and protect our clients against the adverse effects of mergers through effective advocacy before various governmental agencies. We boast an established reputation for securing antitrust clearance for deals that require sophisticated and creative analysis.
Weil’s significant antitrust trial experience includes all manners of civil and criminal cases before juries and judges in multiple jurisdictions, and expertise in appellate practice before national and international courts and tribunals. Our attorneys execute large-scale, complex trial strategies to achieve our clients’ objectives early in the process, avoiding a full trial whenever possible —but successfully trying cases when necessary. Our attorneys are also valued client advisors for all phases of criminal investigations and litigation, including cartel investigations, dawn raids, and predatory pricing investigations. We take pride in knowing the landscape ahead for our clients by making key, early decisions on whether to cooperate or seek leniency, developing a working relationship with regulatory agencies to protect client interests while maintaining credibility, coordinating with counsel in other jurisdictions to ensure consistency in defense strategy, thesis and arguments, and making careful strategy calls so as not to prejudice defenses in civil litigations and investigations.
We have particularly deep and noteworthy experience across a broad array of sectors, such as digital media and online services; pharmaceuticals, medical devices and healthcare; branded/fast-moving consumer goods; chemical, electronic and other industrial products; heavy industrial goods; energy and other infrastructure; financial services; media and communications; and a wide range of service industries.
