A plaintiffs' law firm that tackles problems other firms shy away from

Over the years, Edelson PC has earned a national reputation for its creativity and bold take on practicing law, all while taking on cases that are viewed as “unwinnable.” As a result of the firm’s innovative approach, Edelson has helped secure over $4 billion in settlements, judgment and verdicts in cases where it served as lead counsel, and over $45 billion overall in cases where it served in a broader leadership structure.

We Chart New Territory

Our cases don’t piggy-back on prior government investigations or other firms’ work. We regularly are first to uncover new types of cases, develop new legal theories, combat new technical issues, and reach precedent setting settlements. Our cases don’t chase the news, they break it.

We Actually Enjoy Our Work

Being a lawyer is stressful, and not always fun. So it’s a core principle of ours to make sure we only take cases that we’re passionate about and want to work on, that we put our people in positions where they can succeed, and that we also do things together that have nothing to do with work at all. From an early morning round of golf or a game of beach volleyball, to mid-day trips to the movies, having fun is an important part of who we are. Our holiday parties are epic events featuring increasingly high production video content, and at times, live performances. Our summer program has been known to include fake summer associates, polar bear lawyers, and several other pranks never made public.

Fight for Vulnerable Groups

We are dedicated to representing vulnerable communities in high-impact cases, leveraging both the firm’s resources and creative approach to secure real wins for people facing the hardest circumstances. Both the firm generally and the Public Impact Group litigate these cases.
