If you are interested in having the firm represent you in a legal matter, the best way to initiate possible representation is to communicate with one of the contact attorneys listed in the appropriate practice area section of the site. That attorney will arrange to have you go through our conflict of interest procedures and, following that, will put you directly in touch with the attorney best suited to handle your matter. Please do not send us any confidential information until after you have received from us a written statement that we represent you in your matter (an "engagement letter").

You should avoid sending sensitive or confidential information via e-mail unless they are adequately encrypted. Encryption protocols supported by the firm are available upon request to clients that desire them for especially sensitive communications. Please contact the attorney handling your matter for more information.
