In courtrooms and adversarial actions across the United States and around the world, for matters encompassing a wide spectrum of our clients’ concerns – and often against the most resilient challengers – our trial teams have prevailed when the stakes were highest.
We regularly stand up in court and try cases to verdict – before judges, juries or arbitrators – that have brought about considerable, transformational results, protecting the interests of our clients or avoiding billions in liability on their behalf.

We frequently manage and try notable cases that include bet-the-company levels of damages, issues of first impression and emerging technology.
We excel at leading our clients through multi-jurisdictional and multi-phase matters that involve a range of industries and specialisms.
We also are engaged as national coordinating council, working with other top firms to coordinate strategy and execution, to produce the best results for our clients.
We have tried cases in courthouses across the United States, concerning a wide variety of dispute areas. We also handle such matters before myriad other settings, including local and regulatory agencies and forums for international arbitration.
Reed Smith draws on a deep bench of trial lawyers that includes inductees into the American College of Trial Lawyers and former federal and state prosecutors. Our team is annually recognized by Best Lawyers, Chambers, The Legal 500 and other referral guides of leading lawyers, based on the opinions of their peers and clients.
We bring together first-rate teams of subject-matter authorities – ones who know your business, your technologies, your industry sector and the law – with trial lawyers who can structure arguments in ways that are persuasive and easy for juries to comprehend.
Members of our premier appellate practice regularly advise on cases to anticipate potential procedural issues and establish a strategy that can endure an appeal. Our trial teams also collaborate with co-counsel, in-house e-discovery managed technology services, and trial graphics and technology solutions to ensure we stand ready for trial smoothly and resourcefully.
