Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP is a law firm with approximately 650 attorneys in locations across the United States, London and Shanghai.[1]

According to the firm's Web site, among the firm's clients are a wide range of public and private companies, including nearly a third of the Fortune 100, as well as a number of government and nonprofit organizations and individuals.[2]

Eighty-five Katten attorneys were listed in the 2014 edition of Best Lawyers in America. Twenty-four Katten practices ranked in the 2013 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. Also, 30 of Katten's areas of law practices were named in US News & World Report on the best law firms.[3]


The firm was formed in Chicago in 1974 by 24 attorneys and was originally called Katten Muchin Zavis.[4]

The goal of the founding attorneys was to create an entrepreneurial firm that would grow into a full-service national law firm.

The firm began achieving that goal in 1989, when Katten opened offices in Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. Then in 2002, Katten expanded its New York and Washington, D.C. offices and established a presence in Charlotte, NC by merging with Rosenman & Colin LLP to become Katten Muchin Zavis Rosenman. Founded in 1912, Rosenman & Colin was a distinguished New York firm with a nearly century-long reputation.

On May 2, 2005, the firm became Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP. In June 2005, Katten established a presence in London to service its expanding roster of domestic and international financial services clients. The resulting affiliation, Katten Muchin Rosenman UK LLP, includes a diverse financial services practice representing banks, securities houses, insurance companies, investment managers and others operating in the financial services arena.

Katten established an office in Shanghai in February 2012 and now has a team of attorneys permanently based in China.
