ABOUT BUCHANAN

Never before have in-house counsel faced more intense demands. With amped-up expectations and tightening budgets, you need a law firm that is sophisticated, flexible, efficient and transparent. In short, you need a true partner. We see partnership from a different perspective – yours. And we’ve formalized a model to consistently deliver the service attributes you value most.

Partnership in a New Light

Buchanan has 500 attorneys and government relations professionals in 17 offices across the U.S. with our headquarters office in Pittsburgh.

But what does that mean to you?

  • A flexible, candid, easy-to-work-with firm grounded in authentic client-centric values.
  • Sophisticated yet affordable attorneys to represent your most complex matters.
  • One-stop, full-service access to legal and government relations services across a geographically diverse and collaborative knowledge base.

Most importantly, clients today want firms that are serious about changing their legal service delivery model to provide greater value to clients. You also want more open, honest, transparent conversations about your needs and expectations along with a strong “no surprises at billing” credo. We heard you loud and clear, and we have initiatives in place to better communicate with you and deliver true value.

OUR ROOTS

Founded in 1850, Buchanan is one of the longest standing law firms in the country. Established by Moses Hampton, the firm was built on the foundational practices of business finance and governance, commercial litigation, labor and employment, financial institutions, health care and tax. Namesakes John G. Buchanan, a highly revered appellate lawyer, and Frank B. Ingersoll, a corporate finance attorney, joined the firm in 1916.
