O’Melveny and Myers L.L.P.


O’Melveny’s clients shape markets, set precedents, and break boundaries. They are stalwarts and innovators, the names you trust and the next big thing. And for more than a century, O’Melveny has been right beside them, kicking down walls and putting up defenses to help our clients achieve their most important goals.

Whether we’re connecting clients to new business opportunities, collaborating on strategies to push through their obstacles, or trading ideas for maximizing value, our clients’ business objectives are what set our agenda.

Our commitment starts with great legal results, but doesn’t end there. It also means:

  • Getting to know our clients’ goals, businesses, and cultures as well as any member of their own team;
  • Stepping back and taking a global view of what makes for a successful outcome;
  • Being where our clients need us, when they need us;
  • Consistently delivering excellent results using the most efficient means possible;
  • Mobilizing strong, diverse teams that come up with creative ways to solve problems; and
  • Becoming our clients’ biggest supporter and greatest ally in everything they do.

It’s an approach that comes naturally to us, and always has. At our core, you’ll find a dedication to excellence, a drive to lead and innovate, and a deep sense of civic responsibility. These characteristics—established by our founders—have anchored us for more than 130 years, and remain every bit as important to who we are today.
