Firm Overview:

Founded by Marshall Skadden, Les Arps and John Slate on April Fools’ Day in 1948, Skadden began as a scrappy upstart among a sea of established “white shoe” law firms in New York. Joe Flom was hired as the firm’s first associate later that year, and litigator Bill Meagher, the fifth partner to lend his name to the firm’s letterhead as it appears today, joined in 1959.

Our first two decades were marked by slow and steady growth of our client base as we set out to establish ourselves as the go-to firm for our clients’ most complex legal problems.

Our willingness to handle proxy fights in the 1950s and early 1960s – matters deemed “ungentlemanly” by white shoe firms – positioned us to ultimately become the firm of choice for the hostile takeovers that dominated the mergers and acquisitions landscape beginning in the 1970s.

In the nearly three decades since, we’ve built on that platform to provide advice to clients around the world on their most important matters.

Our core values reflect the ideals of our history, and we remain committed to providing excellent lawyering and unrivalled client service in all our work.
