Reed Smith was founded in Pittsburgh in 1877, and since 2009 our office has been located in Reed Smith Centre, a LEED-certified workspace that helped jumpstart the modernization of the City's "Fifth Avenue Corridor," on the perimeter of Pittsburgh's Cultural District. More than 275 lawyers comprise the Pittsburgh office, making it the largest law office in the city and the largest Reed Smith office in the United States. Pittsburgh also is home to the firm's Global Customer Center, which provides service to Reed Smith's attorneys and offices around the world.
Our history in and dedication to Pittsburgh is evident in many of the Pittsburgh-based clients we proudly serve, including PNC, United States Steel Corporation, Heinz, PPG Industries, Inc., the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, and Carnegie Mellon University, to name but a few. At the same time, we are keenly focused on technology start-ups and other entities that are looking to add to the rich tradition of innovation, transformation and entrepreneurship that have distinguished and sustained Pittsburgh over the decades. And, as our region's vast natural resources are re-establishing Pittsburgh as one of North America's energy centers, we are uniquely positioned to provide the entire spectrum of legal services attendant to that phenomenon.
"Depth" and "breadth" define Reed Smith's Pittsburgh office, as each of the firm's practice and industry groups is represented in Pittsburgh, and our market position allows us to attract and retain top legal talent. The lawyers in Reed Smith's Pittsburgh office serve clients from around the globe. In fact, Pittsburgh-based Reed Smith lawyers annually bring their vitality, dedication and acumen to 70 percent of the firm's 250 largest clients.
Our lawyers understand and embrace the civic and charitable imperatives associated with Reed Smith's prominence in the local business community. Our partners and associates serve as adjunct faculty members, mentors, volunteers, and nonprofit board and committee members. Our support of initiatives such as The Pittsburgh Promise is reflective of our commitment to Pittsburgh's future – a future that we will have a large hand in shaping and molding. And our pro bono efforts and diversity and inclusion initiatives are both extensive and acclaimed.
