Troutman Sanders and Pepper Hamilton officially became Troutman Pepper (Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP) today, a national law firm of 1,100 attorneys in 23 U.S. offices. Our new firm offers clients greater resources and bench strength, enhanced practices, and expanded geographical reach.

We are now one of the 50 largest law firms in the country, with offices in eight of the 10 largest U.S. markets. Our attorneys support some of the country’s biggest industry sectors, including health sciences, energy, real estate, insurance, finance, private equity, construction, and technology.

While we have grown, our mission remains the same: to provide a higher commitment to client care. The merger brings expanded capabilities to our Consumer Financial Services practice, and we are excited for our clients to experience the increased benefits and services. In addition to an expanded footprint in the Northeast and Midwest, this combination enhances the litigation, transactional, regulatory and compliance capabilities that we can offer our Consumer Financial Services clients, particularly in the areas of mortgage lending, credit card and consumer lending, new business and new product development, private banking, electronic banking, and auto finance and leasing.
