Founded in New York City in 1830, Curtis was one of the first U.S. law firms to develop a truly international practice.
Dedicated to counseling clients involved with some of the most challenging trans-national transactions and complex multi-jurisdictional disputes, Curtis represents a wide range of clients, including governments and state-owned companies, multinational corporations and financial institutions, money managers, sovereign wealth funds, privately held businesses, individuals and entrepreneurs. With 19 offices across five continents, in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and East Asia, we are located in the key business centers in which our clients need us most.
Curtis lawyers come from diverse backgrounds, are multilingual and have been educated at some of the finest schools worldwide. Our lawyers bring a global perspective, incorporating a deep understanding of political and cultural sensitivities in addressing our clients' legal needs, and exemplifying what it means to be international business lawyers.
