New York

New York has been the headquarters of Shearman & Sterling since the newly formed partnership of Thomas Shearman and John Sterling opened its doors in 1873. Today, New York is a principal crossroad of international finance and business, and our lawyers have transformed the firm into a thriving global, legal practice.

While the New York office contains the largest concentration of the firm's lawyers and represents all of its practice areas, we operate on the firmwide principle that our success is tied directly to our ability to form teams with colleagues—across the hall or across the globe.

Our lawyers in New York have built a strong reputation through their representation of leading national and international corporations and financial institutions, with some relationships spanning decades. They have also been actively involved in the spread of US businesses into world markets and the entry of businesses from abroad into the expanding US market.
