Who We Are

Crath Miller & Xistris has a different approach than BigLaw. We seek to innovate the traditional ways of practicing law and are driven to be at the forefront of addressing important changes in the legal profession.

Our lawyers are experienced transactional lawyers who worked at BigLaw and think there are many ways to practice law while supporting our clients’ traditional businesses and emerging companies. We do not maintain the traditional internal stratification most firms subject themselves to nor require their significant overhead structure. This approach allows us to deliver to our clients simple, actionable approaches to their most complex legal and business challenges with greater efficiency and significantly less cost while still supporting every client relationship with intellectual agility, commercial acumen and a human touch.

Clients know us for our signature approach to serving their needs:

  • Skilled resolution of high-profile, complex legal and business challenges
  • A sharp focus on the issues that matter most
  • A commitment to addressing our clients’ immediate needs and advancing their longer-term strategic goals


We serve:

  • Public and private companies
  • Family businesses and emerging growth companies
  • Financial institutions
  • Sovereign governments and their agencies
  • Nonprofits and community organizations
  • Civil rights and human rights groups

Partnership and Firm Culture

We strive to admit to our partnership lawyers with demonstrated qualities of character, leadership and intelligence, who have the proven legal skills that will enable them to contribute significantly to our practice over the long term.

Our partners as a whole decide all important Firm matters, including considering candidates for partnership, while partnership committees under the guidance of the managing partner conduct the day-to-day management of the Firm.

We remain committed to building a community focused on openness, diversity, individuality, collegiality and based on fairness and mutual respect.

The essence of our Firm’s culture is represented by our lawyers: talented and intellectually accomplished people of all nationalities, races and interests, who believe that the practice of law is a privilege that carries with it social and personal responsibility. While we assist clients, we also apply our legal knowledge for the benefit of those in need, dedicating time and resources to pro bono legal work and other community activities.
