Fulbright & Jaworski LLP, one of the largest law firms in the United States,[1] is the U.S. member of Norton Rose Fulbright, a global legal practice of approximately 3,800 lawyers in more than 50 offices around the world. [2][3][4] Founded in Houston in 1919 by R.C. Fulbright, Fulbright & Jaworski LLP has represented clients in the energy and financial industries for more than 75 years and in the healthcare industry for more than 60 years.[5] As trustees of the M.D. Anderson Foundation, Fulbright & Jaworski LLP partners were instrumental in the establishment of the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical system in the world.[6] During its first 50 years, the firm’s transportation work included representing the Port of Houston and industries along the Houston Ship Channel.

The late Leon Jaworski, a partner in the firm, headed the investigations into Nazi war crimes during World War II, resulting in the Nuremberg trials. He also served as Assistant to the Attorney General of the United States in the 1963 civil rights case involving James Meredith’s admission to the University of Mississippi, and then as Watergate Special Prosecutor, 1973-74.

Today the firm represents businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals in all types of legal matters globally in coordination with other member firms of Norton Rose Fulbright.
