The area has a dynamic economy that relies on its unique defense and transportation assets. Hosting more than 200 firms representing 27 countries, this prime location also offers all of the global business benefits of being an international community.
Because of the needs of our clients and other businesses here, the Norfolk office has assembled a core group of lawyers with extensive experience in the transportation, defense and technology industries. Our lawyers bring a unique depth of experience in maritime law, international trade and sophisticated public and private projects. Our litigators have served as first or second chair for more than 200 trials across a wide range of disputes.
In addition to representing area companies and institutions, many of the Norfolk-based lawyers maintain practices that are regional, national and international in scope, all backed by a firm with more than 900 lawyers in 20 offices.
Demonstrating their commitment to McGuireWoods’ core value of service to our clients and the communities in which we live and work, the lawyers and staff of the Norfolk office have served in leadership roles and as volunteers in local organizations such as the YMCA of South Hampton Roads, the Hampton Roads Economic Development Association, Tidewater Community College, the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Maritime Association and all of the significant legal associations.
