Simpson Thacher & Bartlett has registered as a limited liability partnership under the laws of the State of New York.  The personal liability of our partners is limited to the extent provided in such laws.

Specifically, under the laws of the State of New York, each partner of a registered limited liability partnership is not personally liable for debts, obligations and liabilities of the firm, except that each partner of a registered limited liability partnership remains personally and fully liable and accountable for any negligent or wrongful act or misconduct committed by him or her or by any person under his or her direct supervision and control while rendering professional services on behalf of the firm or as otherwise provided by the laws governing registered limited liability partnerships.

Registration as a limited liability partnership has not resulted in any change in the firm's practice, personnel or the conduct of its lawyers.  The firm is now known as Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP.  Additional information is available upon request.
