For more than 50 years, Munger, Tolles & Olson attorneys have been
partnering with clients on their most important and complex cases and deals.
With offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco and Washington, D.C., we maintain
a national and international practice. Our principal areas of practice include
litigation, corporate, labor and employment, environmental, real estate,
financial restructuring and tax.
Our firm has purposefully
maintained a low-leverage environment and eschewed the high-leverage model
adopted by many firms. We believe our one-to-one overall partner-to-associate
ratio instills a work ethic that results in a cost-effective approach for our
clients. In every representation, each of our nearly 200 lawyers is expected to
make a difference in developing and implementing strategies to obtain the best
results for the client.
In a survey conducted by The
American Lawyer, clients said they called on Munger, Tolles & Olson in
“precedent-setting cases that require a creative mind.” Where resources are needed,
the survey noted that we are able to deploy an “army of trial lawyers capable
of waging war.”
We are involved in some of
the most high-profile legal cases in the country and count among our clients
Bank of America, Transocean, Edison International, Verizon, Rambus, Oaktree
Capital Management, KB Home, LG Display, Yucaipa Cos. and Berkshire Hathaway.
In order to provide
excellent service, we strive to hire only the most qualified and creative
lawyers. We believe that clerkships provide valuable experience. In this
regard, nearly 70 percent of our attorneys served as law clerks to federal
judges. Thirteen attorneys were clerks to U.S. Supreme Court Justices. Beyond
clerkships, our attorneys also have experiences that bring an additional
dimension to our client service. Many of our litigators honed their courtroom
skills while serving as assistant U.S. attorneys and a number of our lawyers
have advanced degrees in relevant subject matter areas, including physics,
engineering and medicine. We are proud to count among our lawyers one of the
top 21 trial lawyers in the country as identified by Chambers USA, as
well as one of the Daily Journal’s “Ten Top Lawyers of the Decade.”
Munger, Tolles & Olson
has been consistently ranked on The American Lawyer’s A-List
since its inception in 2004, including five years in the top spot. This
annual ranking of the nation’s elite law firms ranks on the basis of financial
strength, diversity, pro bono work and attorney satisfaction. We believe our
core values and one-to-one approach are responsible for our success in these
four areas, as well as in delivering consistent results to our clients.
