Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP is a leading international law firm with offices around the world and a particular focus on the energy & natural resources, financial services, real estate & construction, and technology sectors. Recognized by Financial Times as one of the most innovative law firms, Pillsbury and its lawyers are highly regarded for their forward-thinking approach, their enthusiasm for collaborating across disciplines and their unsurpassed commercial awareness.



The vision to see opportunities where others may see only obstacles. Passion for work and an unshakable dedication to interests and needs. Lawyers who are authorities in their fields working in collaborative teams known for exceptional performance. Shared conviction that open, straightforward communication is essential to earning trust. An ethical foundation based upon helping clients, employees and communities. Pillsbury’s firm-wide practices can be broadly grouped into three categories:

Business:
From entity formation to project and commodities finance, alternative investments to outsourcing agreements, Pillsbury’s business practices advise emerging, middle-market, institutional and multinational clients on all types of corporate, securities, finance and intellectual property transactions.

Litigation:
The litigation experience of the more than 200 lawyers in our global network encompasses a diverse array of fields, industries and legal arenas. Pillsbury litigators have substantial trial experience at the state, federal and appellate level, with the bankruptcy courts, and with dispute resolution proceedings before all of the world’s major arbitration bodies.

Regulatory:
Pillsbury offers a wide range of counseling related to compliance, regulatory hearings and investigations, and public policy. The firm’s lawyers have previously worked in public service at 20 different US regulatory agencies, including the DOJ, EPA, FAA and IRS. The firm has substantial experience handling trade matters under WTO and NAFTA, advising on export and technology transfer controls, and representing clients in trade remedy proceedings.

Industry Focus:
Whether in the incorporation of Standard Oil (now Chevron) in 1900, the formation of Intel in 1968, or the registration of the first trademark for a dotcom in 1994, Pillsbury has been there from the beginning for many of the world’s most storied and vibrant industries. And it is still there today. Pillsbury makes a significant and sustained investment in monitoring—and helping shape—the industries in which clients compete, from energy and financial services to real estate and technology. The firm not only attends the same industry events as its clients, but are often the presenters and keynote speakers. As a result, the firm commences every client matter already well informed of the industry trends that influence strategy and planning. Efforts are guided by the nature of clients’ industries:

Deep Industry Experience:
Pillsbury clients operate in today’s most dynamic industries. To serve them better, the firm structures its practices to address the spectrum of business and legal issues they face. For example, the complexity of the global energy industry led the firm to build an Energy team that covers the world’s most important energy and finance capitals, and is backed by an extensive network of host-country law firm relationships—including Canada and Mexico. In addition, the Abu Dhabi office provides support for clients operating in the Middle East.

Defining Best Practices:
From financial fiduciaries to social media startups, organizations need to stay abreast of evolving industry standards. The practice teams include lawyers who help make those standards, sitting on the working groups and standards bodies that define industry rules.

A Regulatory Powerhouse:
In tightly regulated industries like aviation, energy, health care and communications, clients benefit from working with lawyers who have formerly served in government oversight positions. Across the firm, more than 75 Pillsbury lawyers have held top positions at government and regulatory agencies.

International Capabilities:
The needs of Pillsbury’s clients are often international in scope. To meet those needs, Pillsbury’s US and international offices form a fully integrated network that advises clients doing business around the globe. As a result, nearly one-third of its work touches overseas.
