In 2023, Reed Smith lawyers tried more than 75 cases. Whether before a judge, a jury, or an arbitral tribunal, our deep bench of first-chair trial lawyers have the experience and advocacy skills necessary to help our clients achieve successful results in high-stakes disputes against some of the industry’s most formidable opponents.

As jury verdicts continue to rise, it is more critical than ever to engage counsel with a successful track record at trial, even if an out-of-court settlement or commercial resolution is the litigation objective. Our adversaries know that our seasoned trial lawyers prepare each case from the outset with a “trial-ready” mindset – an approach that maximizes our clients’ chances for a favorable resolution at the negotiating table or in the courtroom. Regardless of when we are retained – at the outset or on the eve of trial – or which side we are advocating for, our trial teams have the subject-matter knowledge, resources, and reputation needed to deliver exceptional results in complex, seemingly insurmountable disputes.
