Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP is an international law firm headquartered at One Liberty Plaza in New York City. The firm currently has offices in Washington DC, Hong Kong, Beijing, London, Rome, Milan, Brussels, Moscow, Frankfurt, Cologne, Paris, Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo. It employs over 900 lawyers worldwide, with its largest office being located in New York. Cleary's international practice is well established: it was the first U.S. firm qualified to practice law in Japan, and it has represented governments throughout Latin America. Cleary became one of the first foreign firms to leave the Japanese market while it opened its first Chinese office in Beijing.[2]

History

The firm was founded in 1946 when six partners—including Henry Friendly—from the firm of Root, Clark, Buckner & Howland (which became Dewey Ballantine in the 1950s and which is now Dewey & LeBoeuf) left Root, Clark to found a firm which they initially called "Cleary, Friendly, Gottlieb & Steen." Friendly's name was removed from the firm's name after he was appointed as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in 1959.

Offices

The New York office is situated on the 34th-46th floors of One Liberty Plaza, across the street from the World Trade Center site. Several members of the firm sit on the advisory committee for the development of that site.

Awards

The firm is consistently rated as one of the top ten most prestigious law firms by Vault.com. Chambers and Partners gives the firm high marks in the following practice areas: Corporate, Litigation, M&A, Private Equity, Antitrust, Capital Markets, Employee Benefits, Real Estate, and Income Tax.

On October 10, 2007, Cleary Gottlieb was included in a ranking of law firms by the national law student group Building a Better Legal Profession.[3][4] The organization ranked firms by billable hours, demographic diversity, and pro bono participation. The results can be found on the organization's website, http://www.betterlegalprofession.org.[5] Cleary scored the highest overall in the New York market for demographic diversity.
