Nixon Peabody LLP is a full-service, Global 100 law firm—one of the largest in the world. The three prestigious law firms that came together to form Nixon Peabody were founded more than a century ago—united by common values and attention to delivering client service of the highest quality. Nixon, Hargrave, Devans & Doyle LLP opened for business in 1875 in Rochester, New York. The firm played an important role in Rochester’s development as a leading industrial center by representing many of the city’s landmark businesses. Peabody & Brown was founded nearly 150 years ago in Boston and first distinguished itself as an innovative real estate, business, and financial services firm. San Francisco’s Lillick & Charles opened its doors in 1897, and built a strong base of transportation, financial services, insurance, and industrial clients in Asia and Europe. Nixon Peabody has continued to grow to serve the needs of its clients, both in the United States and abroad. In recent years the firm expanded in Europe and Asia, and doubled its West Coast presence in the United States.
