Our Atlanta office provides a wide variety of legal services to McGuireWoods’ local, national and international clients and reflects Atlanta’s place as the business capital of the southeastern United States and a global business hub. McGuireWoods Consulting, the law firm’s full-service public affairs subsidiary and one of Georgia’s most influential lobbying firms, also calls Atlanta home.
Atlanta is one of the firm’s strongholds in the areas of debt finance, tax, real estate, healthcare, labor and employment, and litigation. And Atlanta partners chair McGuireWoods’ firmwide Real Estate & Land Use, Tax & Employee Benefits, and Financial Services Litigation Departments.
The debt finance team handles a wide variety of complex credit transactions for some of the largest financial institutions in the United States. Our real estate lawyers represent clients engaged in acquisitions, dispositions, leasing, equity investments, management and funding of real estate projects across the country and across asset classes. The labor and employment team counsels employers in employee relations, including negotiating and drafting employment agreements, and represents and advises management in labor, federal and state employment discrimination, and covenant not to compete and trade secrets matters. Atlanta tax attorneys work on complex, sophisticated transactions, advise clients on corporate and partnership tax planning matters, and often counsel real estate investment trusts (REITs), independent sponsors and private equity funds. And our litigators represent clients in intellectual property, financial services, securities, product liability and complex business matters in state and federal courts and arbitrations in Georgia and nationwide.
Additional resources in Atlanta are available through McGuireWoods Consulting, which offers federal, state and local government relations; strategic communications; grassroots advocacy; and infrastructure and economic development services.
The Atlanta lawyers, consultants and staff are committed to giving back to their community and handling pro bono work. We have established deep partnerships with the American Red Cross’ Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter, the Red Cross’ Southern Blood Services Region (including participating in the Atlanta LifeBoard), Crossroads Community Ministries, the National Kidney Foundation, March of Dimes’ Georgia Chapter, Hands on Atlanta and Page Turners Make Great Learners.
