Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath (Faegre Drinker) launched global operations, effective Feb. 1, 2020. Faegre Drinker is the combination of Faegre Baker Daniels, an international law firm with deep roots in the Midwest, and Drinker Biddle & Reath, a full-service national law firm with storied East Coast origins.
Our priorities are knowing our clients’ business and providing the value they need so that we can be an integral part of their success. Clients choose us for our sophisticated, efficient approach to handling their most important business transactions, litigation and government affairs efforts.
Our 160-plus year history is marked by service to the public and the bar and innovating for our clients. Today, we combine a comprehensive range of traditional legal practices with significant national roles in class action defense, corporate and securities, government relations, health care, intellectual property, insurance, investment management, private equity, bankruptcy, energy, environmental, education and communications.
Because we believe the best learning comes from doing, our first-year associates spend four months in our nationally recognized development program. The training, led by our partners, emphasizes the need for associates to understand the business contexts related to client problems and teaches the skills needed to solve them effectively. Our clients don’t bear the cost, as we do not allow our associates to bill work during the program.
