Paul|Weiss is an international "Big Law" firm of attorneys headquartered in New York City with offices in New York, Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Tokyo, Toronto, Washington, D.C. and Wilmington, Delaware.

Having been a summer associate and associate in the corporate department of the firm in New York City, the LawPundit was gratified to read that US News - Best Lawyers had named Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP
the Corporate Law Firm of the Year in 2016.

Paul, Weiss et al. has a long, unique and storied history extending far beyond corporate law, so that recognition for legal excellence is nothing new.

For example, as written at that history:

"Each of the three women serving on the U.S. Supreme Court in 2016 began her career as a summer associate at Paul, Weiss."

Take a look at the quite amazing history of the firm.
