Prepared. Effective. Solution-Driven.
Ward Greenberg offers a client-driven, proactive approach to civil litigation and business counseling. From offices in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, we achieve practical solutions in sophisticated matters for businesses, institutions, and professionals across multiple jurisdictions.
We understand our clients' industries, businesses, resources, and desired outcomes ? and deliver consistent and efficient results. Relationships are important to us ? not only our relationships with clients, but also with regulators, judges, and opposing counsel, with whom we strive for civil, productive dialogue, while at the same time, zealously advocating for our clients.
Experienced and prepared, Ward Greenberg attorneys confidently manage high-stakes cases, regularly facing off against the country's largest regional and national firms. We bring deep technical excellence to complex matters, are well-versed in the latest industry development and trends, and can tap into an impressive network of trusted outside experts from around the country for appropriate matters. Our attorneys are involved in prestigious national organizations ? such as the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Advocates, and the American College of Coverage Counsel.
We assess cases early and accurately so our clients are never caught off guard. We can see around corners, evaluating all of our clients' options, including the potential for prompt alternatives to litigation. We collaborate with clients on strategies ? whether litigation, arbitration, or settlement ? that best serve their objectives.
At Ward Greenberg, we are devoted to cultivating diversity of thought and analysis ? every day, in every matter. As we grow more diverse and inclusive, we achieve better solutions for our sophisticated clients, we help our team members develop more fully, and we thrive as a firm.
Diversity and inclusion
At Ward Greenberg, we believe that there is value in difference.
We are devoted to cultivating diversity of thought and analysis, because as we grow more diverse and inclusive, we achieve better solutions for our clients. Therefore, we continually seek attorneys with a broad cross-section of backgrounds and ideas.
This process begins at the recruitment stage. Ward Greenberg invites first-year law students to participate in our Diversity Scholar Program. Under this initiative, successful Scholars have the opportunity to perform meaningful work with our attorneys and establish close relationships with our clients. By the time a Scholar joins the firm as a full-time attorney, he or she is positioned for a successful future with the firm.
In the case of lateral attorneys, we seek candidates who demonstrate academic and leadership achievements, who want to practice at a sophisticated litigation firm, and who can articulate how their uniqueness ? however they define it ? will advance our diversity and inclusion objectives.
Our values carry over from recruitment to the very operation of the firm. Ward Greenberg seeks out and partners with clients whose corporate cultures demand legal teams that embrace and implement like-minded inclusion commitments. When making assignments and assembling teams for matters, we involve a cross-section of perspectives and backgrounds to deliver the best service to our clients.
