About Zelle LLP

Zelle attorneys are proud to represent clients in their most challenging insurance-related disputes, antitrust/competition and other complex business litigation in venues across the United States and around the world. Our experience in successfully resolving high-profile, high-exposure cases and our commitment to efficient and responsive service supports everything we do.

Because we represent both defendants and plaintiffs, our attorneys have developed keen insights and experience from practicing on both sides of the aisle. We can better understand and anticipate the objectives and tactics of opposing counsel, giving our clients a number of distinct advantages. Since our contingency practice obligates us to fund many of our clients' cases, we are particularly adept in avoiding unnecessary tasks and expenses while doing everything to achieve the most favorable outcomes. Our clients appreciate this ability to efficiently staff cases while still delivering exceptional service and consistent results.

We believe – and our clients agree – that the way we approach litigation is key to our success in building solid relationships and implementing effective strategies. Our attorneys offer experience and in-depth knowledge across a wide range of industries, and probe to determine our clients’ specific needs and the broader implications of any dispute. Zelle attorneys quickly assess the facts, balance the intangibles, and deliver legal counsel that is creative and realistic.

While the scope of our practice is focused, the diverse talents, intellectual knowledge and technological resources we offer are vast. Zelle’s collaborative teams of attorneys, multiple offices and international presence assure that we are always prepared to meet your needs, even in the most challenging, sensitive or catastrophic of circumstances.

Summer associate program

The goal of our summer program is to integrate our summer associates into our cases and into the life of the firm as much as possible over the few short weeks of summer. That way, you will understand our firm and our practice better, and we will get to know you, both as a person and as a lawyer. Like all of our lawyers, we expect that our summer associates will help us to meet the goals and expectations of our clients. In particular, summer associates assist partners and associates with research and writing assignments that help us to advise our clients, to develop litigation strategies and to file court papers. In addition, summer associates often draft pleadings and motions that the attorneys are able to refine and present to a client or file in court.
