Nixon Peabody LLP is a full-service, international law firm with a distinguished history. The firm, which has been recognized each year since 2002 as a ?Global 100? firm?one of the largest in the world, was formed through the merger of three prestigious law firms with broad-based practices and extensive portfolios. Nixon Peabody was united not only by name, but by common values: a collegial, team approach to conducting business; an emphasis on delivering high-quality service; and a desire to exceed client expectations. The firms that came together to form Nixon Peabody were founded more than a century ago, and many of our most significant business relationships have endured throughout the years. We are proud of our history. We believe that it reflects remarkable stability, as well as skill in delivering innovative yet practical legal solutions to a diverse array of clients.
