About the Firm

Reed Smith traces its history back to 1877 when James H. Reed and Philander C. Knox joined hands to create the law firm of Knox & Reed that played an instrumental role in the transformation of the United States by representing leading industrialists like Mellon, Carnegie, Frick, Heinz, and Westinghouse, to name a few. Over a period of more than hundred years, the firm’s name changed many times, but the vision of its founding fathers was not forgotten, i.e., to build strong relationships with the firm’s clients. Reed Smith has grown into an international law firm with fourteen offices in the United States and nine offices on foreign soil in Asia, Middle East, and Europe. At Reed Smith, the best attorneys have been assembled to deal with the most complex cases and high-stakes disputes; the firm regularly counsels many of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, commercial and saving banks, and pharmaceutical distribution and whole sale companies.
At Reed Smith, the focus is on providing exceptional legal services that are client-centered, prompt, and meticulous. The Global Managing Partner, Gregory B. Jordan, leads the prestigious firm by example, and in his twelve years tenure, the firm has become one of the largest law firms in the world with nearly 1700 attorneys. For the past eight years, the BTI Consulting Group has named the law firm among the top firms for client service. Reed Smith was named the runner up for the title of the “U.S. Law Firm of the Year” by The Lawyer.
The firm is not only just focused on client satisfaction; there is strong commitment to pro bono work. More than three percent of the billable time is given to pro bono matters. Besides legal representation, the attorneys and staff at Reed Smith financially help and support charitable organizations and frequently undertake projects to directly help disadvantaged people such as preparing meals for homeless children and repairing houses of elderly people.
