About the Firm

Nixon Peabody, also known as Nixon Peabody LLP, was established in 1999 as a multi-practice law firm of the United States which gained mainstream success in little time. It became known as one of the biggest multi-practice firms nationally. With its headquarters in Boston, it soon opened up branches in other parts of the world which include Shanghai, Paris, and London. It is currently working in 25 plus major areas and has 18 offices in total where approximately 800 attorneys work round the clock. Nixon Peabody stands at number 64 in The American Lawyer’s top 100 law firms and at number 61 on the list of top law firms by Vault. It also secured number 5th position at the Vault Survey in terms of offering pro bono services (2012).
Nixon Peabody is known for dealing with clients in all areas of practice without any restriction. However, it is acknowledged the most for its work in litigations, mergers and acquisitions, and intellectual property. The firm has a diverse range of clients which include representation from multi-nationals, domestic companies, emerging new businesses, educational institutes, financial institutions, and non-profit organizations. Its prominent clients include Yankees, Constellation Brands, Gannett Co., Jet Blues, and Corning Incorporated.
Nixon Peabody has a unique feature of providing specialized services. It has created about 30 teams within its structure which are dealing with specialized areas, offering their clients some of the best services worldwide. Nixon Peabody was initially formed with the merger of two already existing law firms, which were established about a century ago. These included one of the largest law firms of New York, Nixon, Hargrave, Devans & Doyle LLP, whereas the other one, Peabody and Brown had emerged from Boston and was known throughout the country for their remarkable contribution towards legal services. The merger which started in 1999 was completed by the end of 2001. The next year Nixon Peabody merged with another law firm by the name Hutchins, Wheeler & Dittmar. Ever since, the firm has been following its objective of growth and expanding in the international forum.
