The 35 lawyers in Womble Carlyle’s D.C. office are among the most creative and best-known attorneys in the region in several legal service areas. We are constantly looking to serve our clients better by understanding the new business challenges that they face. We are becoming thought leaders in such areas as the "Impact Economy", "green" construction and development, real estate technology, and broadcast/multimedia/Internet regulation.
Our real estate practice is both broad and deep. We represent many of the leading developers, lenders, institutional investors, and other key players in the metropolitan area and have assisted our clients in many of the most important recent transactions both downtown and in the suburbs. We have a very strong group of commercial litigators and have won major victories for our clients in employment, contract, and real estate matters. We also boast a full-service communications practice, with a wide variety of broadcast, cable, and telecommunications work. Other specialties of the office include tax, bankruptcy, employee benefits, lobbying, and antitrust.
In real estate, we represent the lead residential developer of Rockville Town Square, a $300 million project that is the largest mixed-use project built in Montgomery County, Md. We represented the developer of Henson Ridge, a headline-making federally assisted affordable housing project in Southeast Washington. Our litigators have consistently won important cases in local and federal courts for clients such as Centex Homes and the Bureau of National Affairs. Our telecommunications lawyers represent radio and television broadcasters around the country, cable operators throughout the country and in the Caribbean, wireline and wireless providers, local exchange carriers, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers in transactions and before the FCC, state public service commissions, and the federal courts. Our lobbyists helped the State of North Carolina survive the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process with a minimum of damage to its booming economy.
