Goodwin Procter LLP (known as Goodwin) is the 35th wealthiest American law firm, consisting of more than 900 lawyers with offices in Boston, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Silicon Valley, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Goodwin focuses on complex transactional work and high-stakes litigation in matters involving financial institutions, intellectual property, private equity, real estate capital markets, securities litigation/white collar defense, and technology/life sciences. In 1912, lawyers and former Harvard classmates Robert Goodwin and Joseph Procter ran into each other on the street and – as the story goes – decided to start their own law firm. On July 1, 1912, Goodwin & Procter opened its offices at 84 State Street in Boston, with the partners undertaking a general practice of law. In the winter of 1912, Robert Goodwin and Amos Taylor represented Marjorie Newell Robb against the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company for the sum of $110,400 resulting from the April 15, 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic.
