Antitrust and International Trade
We have seasoned chemicals lawyers who understand your markets and are there to assist on antitrust and trade matters. Our lawyers have decades of global regulatory experience with antitrust, competition, international trade, export controls, duty recovery, and other standard and emerging issues.
Corporate Transactions, Finance and Governance
We counsel on leading M&A transactions and financings in the chemicals space, with clients such as Ashland and INEOS.
Environmental, Safety and Health
For over a century, our Chemicals Group has worked with federal and state regulators and agencies on a variety of chemical issues, including permitting. Where negotiations fail, we have the advocacy experience to successfully challenge overreaching rules.
A number of our intellectual property lawyers hold doctorates in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science and other chemical-related fields. Many of these lawyers have worked for companies as radiologic technologists, research engineers, patent agents and in-house counsel to chemical companies. Our large, global Intellectual Property & Technology Practice understands your chemical business and speaks your language.

Since the early 20th century, we have defended multinational chemical companies, applying a range of cost-effective dispute resolution strategies. We are pleased to have DuPont call on us as one of its “go-to” firms for litigation.
