For 128 years, O’Melveny has built its reputation practicing on the cutting edge of American law. Our exceptional group of lawyers are at the core of our global platform operating across three continents. Whether appearing before the Supreme Court of the United States, litigating a high-stakes case for a Wall Street bank, representing a major Hollywood studio in a complex slate financing, or negotiating the restructuring of a multibillion-dollar enterprise, O’Melveny has the depth and breadth of experience to give its clients a competitive edge.
Since formation in 1885 of our partnership in Los Angeles, our West Coast presence has grown to five offices in Los Angeles, Century City, Newport Beach, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley—one of the strongest law firm presences in America's largest economy and leading technology state. On the Eastern seaboard, our Washington, DC and New York offices operate in the political, financial, and regulatory capitals of the US, assisting clients with major transactions, litigation, investigations, and public policy issues.
