A founding member of USLAW NETWORK—an elite, by-invitation-only, international affiliation of more than 60 AV-rated, independent law firms—Wicker Smith can provide clients global legal resources of the highest caliber. Although since the firm’s foundation, our attorneys have received numerous awards and recognitions for their legal acumen and contributions to the community, we consider our greatest distinction the enduring relationships we forge with our clients.

Foundational to our success has been our unwavering commitment to operating with a high level of integrity and efficiency, providing clients with an early evaluation/opinion and seeking fast resolutions which protect their best interests. Our focus is on understanding each client’s unique needs and goals, moving quickly and efficiently to the best possible resolution. This client-centric approach has fostered long-standing partnerships which illustrate Wicker Smith’s full-out commitment to clients.

While we take pride in the many awards and accolades we have received over the years for our legal wins, we take special satisfaction in knowing that our clients trust us as their “go-to” strategic partners in overcoming obstacles, maximizing opportunities, and achieving their goals and objectives.

Client Relationships

At Wicker Smith, we are known for our exceptional ability to secure wins in high-stakes legal matters. And we do so with strict adherence to the highest standards of legal ethics, integrity, and professionalism. We believe one of our key strengths lies in our ability to recruit and tenure attorneys and staff that are not only remarkably talented but of excellent character.

Importantly, we go beyond solving the litigation problems of the day – we bring value that protects our clients’ best interests and positions them for continued success. Resulting from our 60-plus years of partnering with the world’s top Fortune 500 companies and global brands, we not only think like lawyers, but as businesspeople.

We work closely with our clients to understand the potential impacts on their litigation goals and objectives of the legal, business, political and regulatory environment. Just as important, we proactively anticipate legal issues and offer creative yet practical strategies to address them. In addition to litigation, we assist clients with business and transactional law across a wide spectrum of verticals.

Every step of the way, our approach is driven by one thing: our clients’ goals. Prioritizing their best interests, we work to negotiate favorable settlements that prevent the need for time-consuming, costly litigation. Our reputation as litigators gives our clients a distinct advantage in settlement negotiations. However, we are always well poised to proceed to the courtroom whenever necessary.

While we take pride in the many awards and accolades we have received over the years for our legal wins, we take special satisfaction in knowing that our clients trust us as their “go-to” strategic partners in overcoming obstacles, maximizing opportunities, and achieving their goals and objectives.

Traditional Values, Forward-Thinking Approach

With our forward-thinking approach and commitment to staying abreast of emerging issues and trends, we open doors to create opportunities and we add value at every turn.

Wherever, whenever our clients need us – in the courtroom or the boardroom – we are your best allies. With Wicker Smith in your corner, obstacles become stepping stones to the most advantageous outcomes.
