Last week, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison found itself at the center of a news story about a government official stepping down and a magazine article titled “’The Truth Turns Out to be Ugly’: How Paul, Weiss Tried to Thwart Reporting on the Caesar’s Palace Collapse.”

While the stories were unrelated, and their timing in the same week coincidental, they drew attention to how the firm represents its clients. The firm’s chairman, Brad Karp, in discussing this attention, noted that Paul Weiss is not one to shy away from public discussion of social and political issues.
