About Cravath Cravath has been known as one of the premier U.S. law firms for more than two centuries. Each of our practice areas is highly regarded, and our lawyers are recognized around the world for their commitment to the representation of our clients’ interests. Throughout our history, we have played a central role in developing how law is practiced, how lawyers are trained and how business risk is managed. We are not, and do not strive to be, the largest law firm measured by number of offices or lawyers. Our goal is to be the firm of choice for clients with respect to their most challenging legal issues, most significant business transactions and most critical disputes. Our story began on the 22nd day of March in 1819, when Richard Blatchford established a law office at 140 Water Street in New York City. Four years later, his lifelong colleague and friend, William Seward, began a partnership with Elijah Miller in Auburn. In 1854, the New York and Auburn offices formally combined. These two great families of lawyers, the Blatchfords and the Sewards, were the foundation of our Firm. During the Civil War, Richard Blatchford and William Seward each served President Lincoln. Clarence Seward, our third Presiding Partner, would go on to become a Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The history of our Firm has followed the path of America. We have been privileged to advise many of the inventors, entrepreneurs and financiers who built the nation into an economic powerhouse, and to use our advocacy to uphold constitutional principles of equality, liberty, press freedom and the separation of powers. Our model, developed by Paul Cravath, became the blueprint for the modern American law firm and many other professional services firms powered by human capital. The Cravath family legacy extended from the founding of Fisk University during the era of Reconstruction to the formation of the Council on Foreign Relations to seek a more peaceful world through the promotion of diplomacy and alliances among nations. As we embark on our third century, our partnership continues to derive strength from timeless and enduring values: a passion for lawyering as a noble calling, a commitment to pursuing excellence and a belief in the power of collaboration.
