This article includes the Suits filming locations. Although the series is set in New York City, it has been mostly filmed in Toronto, Ontario. After filming the pilot in New York City, producers shifted the series shoot to Toronto due to tax credits in Canada.

The 51-story skyscraper known as Bay Adelaide West, a part of the Bay Adelaide Centre located in Toronto´s Financial District on 333 Bay Street, serves as the office of Pearson Specter Litt. It is often featured on establishing shots, exterior shots and shots of the lobby.

The lobby scene of Harvey and Jones DeBeque's meeting with Daniel Vega and Vega's attorney Dana Scott in DeBeque's hotel (episode “Play the Man”) was filmed in the lobby of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel on 181 Wellington Street West.
