We are organized into nationwide practices to ensure that you have the most capable, experienced attorneys to help you with your specific litigation needs, including:

Antitrust: Foley’s Antitrust attorneys provide comprehensive antitrust defense services keyed to a strong, compliance-based approach.

Appellate: As both advocates and counselors — in court and through amicus briefs — we represent clients in appeals before federal and state courts and agencies throughout the country. Most of our approximately 400 litigators have substantial experience in both trial-level and appellate litigation. In addition, our Appellate attorneys focus their practices on appellate advocacy and counseling.

Bankruptcy & Business Reorganizations: Our Bankruptcy & Business Reorganizations Practice is a national practice, with a clientele in all major regions of the United States. Our experience in bankruptcy and workouts and our strength in trustee and bondholder work have earned us high marks by The Legal 500 every year since 2010.

Business Litigation & Dispute Resolution: Foley’s Litigation attorneys leverage their experience, project management skills, and technology to add value when representing our corporate clients in a variety of disputes. We can represent you in all state and federal trial and appellate courts, in disputes with the government, and in arbitration, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution fora.

Construction: Our Construction attorneys have the judgment and experience to guide you through the most complex issues — from the drawing board to completion, and every dispute that may arise from a project. In 2012, The Legal 500 highlighted the practice’s ability to adapt to changing market forces.

Consumer Financial Services: The attorneys in our Consumer Financial Services Practice represent financial institutions, businesses in the credit card industry, and other financial services companies in all types of disputes with their borrowers. Our clients include commercial banks, thrifts, finance companies, credit card issuers, acquirers and processors, and mortgage bankers.

Distribution & Franchise: Foley’s Distribution & Franchise attorneys counsel you in the law and business of distribution and franchise and the resolution of disputes through negotiation and litigation.

Government Enforcement, Compliance & White Collar Defense: Our Government Enforcement, Compliance & White Collar Defense attorneys represent businesses and individuals in government enforcement proceedings, criminal investigations and trials, false claims investigations and trials, and other types of internal investigations. We also have attorneys who focus their practice on FCPA and anti-corruption services and represent clients affected by, under investigation for, or sued for alleged violations of the False Claims Act.

Immigration, Nationality & Consular Law: Our Labor & Employment attorneys provide immigration counsel to foreign nationals, U.S. companies, and bi-national families.

Insurance & Reinsurance Litigation: Our Insurance attorneys provide legal solutions to the insurance and reinsurance industries in a wide variety of contexts — everything from mergers and acquisitions and regulatory compliance to litigation and intellectual property — reflecting and anticipating all aspects of an insurer’s or reinsurer’s operations and legal needs. Touting the “excellent” practice, The Legal 500 reported in 2012 that it “stands out from its competition in the way it responds to client needs.”

Labor & Employment: Foley’s Labor & Employment attorneys provide compliance counseling and litigation services to help you promote effective labor-management relations and ensure compliance with state and federal labor, discrimination, and wage and hour laws.

Privacy, Security & Information Management: Foley’s Privacy, Security & Information Management Practice delivers strategic, practical advice to U.S. and international companies seeking to improve the use of information assets with compliant, risk-mitigating practices. Our practice is regularly recognized as one of the top global privacy practices.
