Who We Are

Lewis Baach Kaufmann Middlemiss is a globally recognized litigation boutique specializing in international financial disputes, financial compliance, white collar defense and investigations, insurance and reinsurance advice and representation, Intellectual Property, and cross-border commercial litigation. 

Our clients include leading corporations, insurers, financial institutions, family conglomerates, public officials and professionals facing complex, high-stakes problems, such as complex financial disputes, insolvency, insurance or reinsurance disputes, patent litigation, government relations initiatives or white collar criminal investigations or prosecutions. They turn to us for assistance in solving problems in court, at the negotiating table, with regulators, and with legislators.

Our lawyers have a well-deserved international reputation for exceptional litigation prowess and resourceful problem-solving in high-profile matters—from the world’s largest bank insolvency (BCCI) to Reconstruction and Renewal at Lloyd’s, from a billion-dollar RICO judgment to the largest fraud in the history of the Middle East, from a string of product liability defense verdicts to representation of London Market Insurers in their most challenging problems for 30 years.

While we are a leading national and international litigation firm, we are more agile, cost effective and client-oriented than the vast legal behemoths in fashion today.  We also have fewer conflicts, freeing us to act for our clients in virtually all of their matters, regardless of the opponent.

Thanks in large part to our skills as tough, thorough, and experienced litigators, we can often achieve our clients’ goals through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, without the expense of going to trial. We counsel clients on ways to minimize litigation risks and costs and we work with clients to develop realistic budgets so that the costs of litigation can be anticipated and managed like other business expenses.

We pride ourselves on being a sophisticated, principled, diverse and public-spirited firm. We like to think that is why so many of our clients have remained so loyal for so many years.
