Davis & Gilbert LLP
Davis & Gilbert LLP is an independent, strategically focused, full service, multi-disciplinary law firm of more than 110 lawyers that represents clients - including small and mid-size independent companies, partnerships, joint ventures, large media conglomerates and multinational holding companies that employ tens of thousands of employees in offices around the world - on virtually every legal issue, from advertising, corporate governance, litigation, mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, executive benefits and compensation to intellectual property, new media, real estate, taxation, wealth management and estate planning.
As the preeminent law firm for the advertising, marketing communications and media industry since we were founded more than a century ago, we have long term relationships with many of our clients and many of the most well-known companies in the industry. As an example, Davis & Gilbert handled the initial incorporation of some of the industry's most famous companies, from Benton & Bowles in the 1940s to Doyle Dane & Bernbach in the 1960s - and we have continued to service their general corporate and transactional needs as they have grown, changed and consolidated into multibillion dollar worldwide organizations.
We provide our clients with real "value added" legal services based on our expertise and experience. Our clients appreciate the quality and efficiency of what we do, and the advice that allows them to make informed business decisions. We offer the best of both worlds. We combine the resources and expertise of a law firm with the practical and experienced advice that our clients need. We work with business people and internal counsel, and support both in what they do and what they need. We are lawyers who are true counselors and help our clients achieve their business goals.
We are a firm that knows who it is and knows where it is going. In a time of rapid change, clients need lawyers who are focused on the clients' business, not on the law firm's "profit per partner." Davis & Gilbert is unique in its strategic position and in its philosophy, and the direct beneficiaries of both are our clients.
