A History of Growth
Lewis and Roca established an office in Reno in 2006 and we have grown steadily since then. In 2007 we formed a new partnership with Beckley Singleton, one of Nevada’s oldest and most respected law firms. This expansion has extended our multi-disciplinary reach and today our team consists of nearly 20 lawyers ready to serve your business needs.
With Lewis and Roca’s Reno team, your business receives guidance and counsel from experienced lawyers with the local knowledge and contacts that you expect from a leading regional law firm. Attorneys in this office are recognized in The Best Lawyers in America® by Woodward/White, Aiken, S.C., one is included in the most recent edition of Chambers, and many are rated by Martindale-Hubbell as “Preeminent Attorneys.” One of our attorneys is past president of the State Bar of Nevada. Also, a number of our lawyers serve or have served as the Chair of their practice group section for a county, state or national bar association.
Our Litigation Practice
Lewis and Roca’s commercial litigators mean business. We understand the way businesses work and the issues at stake when problems arise. We work with our clients to determine, as quickly as possible, whether settlement or trial is the best way to resolve their disputes. Our clients are companies of any size – from the Fortune 50 to small businesses – that face commercial disputes in Reno, the Southwest and across the country. When you turn to Lewis and Roca for help, we put you at the center of our strategy. Every action we recommend is done with your business objectives in mind. We don’t over- or under-litigate, and we’re not afraid to take an aggressive approach to a dispute on your behalf when it’s warranted.

Because Lewis and Roca counsels a wide range of local government entities throughout the West and Southwest, and because a number of our team members have served in senior positions at all levels of government, we have the experience to develop effective solutions for public and private sector clients alike.
