The results the firm achieves have set it apart for more than 130 years and have become a model for the modern practice of law. Today, S&C is a leader in each of its core practice areas and in each of its geographic markets.
S&C’s success is the result of the quality of its lawyers, the most broadly and deeply trained collection of attorneys in the world.

Clients of the firm are nearly evenly divided between US and non-US entities. They include industrial and commercial companies; financial institutions; private funds; governments; educational, charitable and cultural institutions; and individuals, estates and trusts. S&C’s client base is exceptionally diverse, a result of the firm’s extraordinary capacity to tailor work to specific client needs.
