McGuireWoods’ Raleigh office gives the firm a solid presence in the Research Triangle, one of the fastest-growing and most vibrant areas in the country. Raleigh office lawyers bring a unique depth of experience across areas, including litigation, regulatory matters, finance and private wealth services.
Raleigh litigators have tried cases to verdict in dozens of jurisdictions nationwide. They handle disputes in a range of industries and practices, including healthcare disputes, environmental issues, financial services, patents, product liability, government investigations and white collar crime and toxic torts.
Our regulatory lawyers represent the Southeast’s largest electric and natural gas public utilities and utility holding companies, and advise clients on non-utility generation development and regulation, including issues related to utility-scale solar and other renewable energy technologies.
McGuireWoods’ private equity lawyers represent clients at all levels of the capital structure, including leveraged buyouts, equity co-investments and a variety of debt financing structures. They advise private equity funds and nonbank lenders in connection with acquisition financings, intercreditor relationships, and complex workouts and restructurings.
Our public finance lawyers represent governmental issuers, nonprofit borrowers and affordable housing developers, as well as lenders and underwriters, ranging from tax-exempt and tax-advantaged financings to finance capital projects, including many innovative financing techniques.
The Raleigh private wealth services group, part of the firm’s nationally recognized private wealth services practice, works with families to achieve their personal and tax planning goals.
The Raleigh office also includes McGuireWoods Consulting, the law firm’s full-service public affairs subsidiary, whose North Carolina team offers decades of experience to serve clients across the state. McGuireWoods Consulting’s government affairs team has extensive knowledge in state, local and executive branch lobbying, grassroots campaigns, strategic communications, regulatory compliance, and infrastructure and economic development.
Demonstrating their commitment to McGuireWoods’ core value of service to our clients and the communities in which we live and work, the Raleigh office’s lawyers and staff serve in leadership roles and volunteer in local organizations such as the Hunt for Success Backpack Drive, YMCA of the Triangle Area, Carolina Chapter of the MS Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, Hospice of Wake County, Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County, Food Bank of North Carolina, WakeMed Foundation, and Leadership Raleigh, among others.
