The Harvard International Law Journal is pleased to present the following sponsors of the 2015 Symposium.
Realizing the importance of expanding beyond geographic borders, Milbank rose to prominence as an international law firm early in its history. As counsel to foreign corporations with US interests and American corporations operating overseas, we forged relationships in the ‘20s that endure today. In 1977, we opened our Tokyo office—ten years before any other US law firm—and one in Hong Kong, cementing Milbank’s status as one of the very top firms in Asia. We have always sought to smartly control the firm’s growth, strategically positioning offices in key financial centers— London, Frankfurt, Munich, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing and São Paulo as well as New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC—that can best serve client needs for complex global solutions demanded by an intricately interconnected world.
Over more than 145 years, Milbank has constantly evolved—entering new markets, assisting emerging industries and expanding its global presence. Yet, some things remain unchanged. We continue to build on a tradition of excellence, a spirit of support and collegiality, and a commitment to serving respected corporations and institutions worldwide.
