About Arnstein & Lehr LLP

More than a Century of Legal Excellence

Arnstein & Lehr LLP is one of the country’s oldest and most respected law firms. Since its founding in 1893, the Firm has served clients – large and small – throughout the United States and in many foreign countries. More than a century later, Arnstein & Lehr has established itself as a sophisticated, full-service practice that addresses the diverse and complex needs of its clients with vision, expertise, and a commitment to quality and service.

Practice

As the dynamics of business, economics, technology, and communications have become increasingly complex, so also has the practice of law become more complex. We believe that the best results are achieved by drawing on our attorneys’ exceptional talents and varied experiences. Attorneys from various practices work collaboratively to assist clients in achieving personal and business goals, structuring, negotiating and closing transactions, and handling disputed matters. We aim to become trusted advisors that clients can depend upon to deliver excellent legal counseling.

We practice in five main service groups – Business, Litigation, Local Government, Tax and Estate Planning, and Real Estate. Browse our law practices for even more information.

Rewarding Our Clients with Innovative, Insightful Solutions

We counsel a diverse range of clients, from large corporations listed on public stock exchanges to middle market companies to not-for-profit organizations to individuals and emerging businesses. Our clients include governmental bodies, health care entities, financial institutions, trade associations, and a broad range of businesses in the retail, industrial, manufacturing, distribution, technology, and services sectors. We also counsel individuals as to their personal needs, including estate planning, probate matters, and the transfer of wealth and business interests from one generation to another.

In addition, we proudly enjoy long-standing relationships with many of our clients, having counseled numerous businesses for decades. In at least one case, our client relationship with a major publicly held corporation spans more than a century. These long-standing relationships affirm our dependability and dedication to serving our clients.

Finally, we have vast experience and expertise in addressing our clients’ international concerns, bolstered in part by the Firm’s active membership in the International Lawyers Network (ILN) – the largest member organization of law firms in the world, with more than 91 member firms in 66 countries on six continents. As an ILN member firm, we are experienced in representing international clients from all parts of the world, as well as domestic clients with worldwide interests.

Going Beyond Expectations

Utilizing the depth of each practice group, Arnstein & Lehr commits itself to providing quality, result-oriented legal services in a cost-effective manner. In today’s competitive economic climate, businesses and individuals must react to the ever changing complexities of legal and business environments while containing legal costs at the same time. That’s why we take pride in our ability to deliver legal services in a timely and efficient manner.

As part of our commitment to exceptional client service, we also believe it is important to keep our clients updated on the legal developments affecting them. Our attorneys regularly give presentations and offer seminars on topics ranging from intellectual property to e-discovery. In addition, they publish practice-specific newsletters that help disseminate current legal developments of interest to our clients.

Our attorneys commit themselves to pro bono work, law reform, and professional service. Many are active contributors to legal and business publications and serve as speakers and faculty at numerous continuing legal education programs and seminars. In addition, many have achieved peer recognition by their election and appointment to leadership positions in a variety of civic, charitable, and professional organizations.
