Our Buffalo attorneys are uniquely positioned to serve companies in Western New York and tackle cross-border issues involving interests in Canada.
Given Buffalo’s roots in transportation and movement of goods, it is no surprise that we continue to serve companies addressing tomorrow’s needs in this area. But as Buffalo diversifies its economy to be fit for the future, we are partnering with financial institutions, universities and research centers that are making the city a hub for life sciences, banking and health care.
Our Buffalo office is both a resource for local business and a home to world-class litigators and corporate attorneys who serve clients around the world. Our strength is the capacity to bring top tier talent to the needs of local businesses. No other large law firm in Buffalo has the international and national resources of Nixon Peabody. Yet, we are local enough to provide government relations counsel that comes with significant local roots and to handle the city’s most significant infrastructure projects, like the lease on the Bill’s stadium.
Whether handling legal work locally or afar, our attorneys are embedded in the community and believe deeply in the future of Buffalo. We serve in leadership positions with a number of area nonprofits, including the Irish Classical Theatre Company, Heritage Centers Foundation, Aspire, The Aspire Foundation, United Way Emerging Leaders Advisory Board, Meals on Wheels and the Black Leadership Forum of Western New York. We actively provide pro bono services through a number of organizations and focus on community volunteerism at the city and town levels.
