Dentons Washington, DC

Our Washington office traces its roots to 1939, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s then attorney general returned to private law practice to form his own firm. In decades that followed, our office has grown dramatically, and remained at the center of law, policy, politics and strategy - providing counsel on a wide range of matters to clients large and small.

The multidisciplinary capabilities offered by the Washington office include Commercial Litigation, Energy, Health Care, Intellectual Property & Technology, and Public Policy. The office's international capabilities include experienced lawyers and professionals who are internationally qualified and have lived and practiced around the world.

By working on diverse projects, with diverse industry players and with colleagues in Dentons offices across the country and around the globe, our DC team offers a breadth of skills and a depth of experience to help you pursue opportunities and overcome challenges at the intersection of law, business and government—whether in Washington, across the nation or around the world.
