Since 1888, when the firm’s founder, Charles Evans Hughes, joined what would eventually evolve into Hughes Hubbard & Reed, the firm has developed a diverse core of litigators that remain at the forefront of the industry.
Many of our largest clients have remained with the firm for decades, and the firm also continues to attract new clients.
For old and new clients alike Hughes Hubbard has handled some of the largest litigations in U.S. history. On June 27, 2012, The American Lawyer ranked Hughes Hubbard the Number 1 law firm in the country on its A-List for the second year in a row. Additionally, we are proud to count in our ranks a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, considered to be the premier professional trial organization in America.
Our strength stems from the depth and breadth of our experience in litigating at all levels in state and federal courts on a wide range of substantive areas.
Hughes Hubbard’s commercial litigation practice encompasses a broad spectrum of legal areas at the trial and appellate levels, including securities law, professional liability, bankruptcy-related matters, labor and employment, financial services and banking, contract and other disputes, administrative law, insurance issues, intellectual property, white collar crime and corporate compliance, and antitrust.
