Greenberg Traurig is known for its entertainment practice, but show business isn't the firm's only legal business. Its 1,800-plus lawyers maintain a wide range of practices, including corporate and securities, intellectual property, labor and employment, litigation, and real estate. The firm has about 30 offices, mainly in the US but also in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. It extends its network in Europe and Asia via strategic alliances. In the U.K. the firm operates as Greenberg Traurig Maher LLP. Greenberg Traurig was founded in 1967 by Mel Greenberg.
Greenberg Traurig represented Morgan Stanley as financial advisors during an $11 billion transaction in 2011. The firm also represented DPL during AES Corporation's $3.5 billion acquisition of the utility company in late 2011.
Greenberg Traurig operates offices in Milan and Rome, Italy through its strategic alliance with the independent law firm Studio Santa Maria. The firm has recently been expanding its West Coast presence by adding lawyers to its offices located in California. – less
