About the Firm

The law firm of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan is one of the oldest and best established in the United States. Originally formed in Atlanta, Georgia, as Sutherland & Tuttle by two notable solicitors, William Sutherland and Elbert Tuttle in 1924, the firm has steadily grown to become one of the largest law firms in the country specializing in corporate, energy and environmental, real estate, and tax law, litigation, and financial services. The firm is part of the AmLaw 100, which ranks the top law firms in the country, and has consecutively been included in U.S News & World Report’s Best Law Firms.

The firm’s founder, William Sutherland started his career in law as a clerk to a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. He and his partner, Elbert Tuttle, worked extensively in the tax field, and their hard work, combined with ample knowledge of the law, earned their firm nationwide fame. In 1933, the two teamed up with Joseph Brennan, and the firm opened a new chapter in its history with involvement in several pro bono activities, including the landmark case of Johnson v. Zerbst, which is one of the most cited cases of its time. Over the years, the law firm of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan, now simply referred to as Sutherland, has taken on some of the biggest cases, including one resulting in the largest reinsurance arbitration in history. The attorneys at the firm have also gone on to hold respectable portfolios in the government, with two attorneys being appointed heads of the IRS, and several being appointed as judges and US Ambassadors.

In 2000, Sutherland created an Intellectual Property Group, and expanded its offices to New York and Houston. Under the current management of partner Mark D. Wasserman, the firm has grown to include 425 attorneys across its 7 locations all over the United States. With years of experience under their belts, an unbeatable record that speaks for itself, and an innovative approach to helping clients achieve their goals, the attorneys at Sutherland Asbill and Brennan are ideally suited to address any type of legal matter.
