Trial skills matter—even in a world where few disputes ever see the inside of a courtroom. Winston & Strawn has built a reputation as a trial lawyers’ firm. Our litigators are fully prepared to defend our clients’ interests in court, both in the United States and around the world. From compliance counseling to mediation, settlement negotiation, motion practice, trial, and appeal, Winston offers a full-service litigation practice capable of meeting our clients’ business and legal objectives, whatever they may be.

Our litigators are some of the most seasoned in the industry, bringing extensive courtroom experience to every matter our firm handles. This experience enables us to spot outcome-determinative legal issues earlier so we can prepare compelling arguments that support our clients’ positions. What’s more, our long history of taking cases to trial – and winning – gives our clients tremendous settlement leverage with their adversaries, as well as confidence in a successful outcome if and when they go to trial.
