Patton Boggs has long been a leading member of the business and legal communities since our founding as an international firm in Washington in 1962. Some would say we approached our growth a bit non traditionally, having grown our practice into a more domestic one in the 50 years since. Patton Boggs was truly a pioneer in merging public policy expertise with traditional legal practice—an idea that continues to lead to us being the nation’s leading public policy law firm year after year.
Our Washington DC office is recognized internationally for our attorneys’ in-depth knowledge of how government works, their strong,bipartisan relationships with policy makers and their skill as advocates for clients. We’ve paid close attention to complementing this bedrock of our practice by also recruiting top-flight litigators and professionals with a keen understanding of business and finance to better serve clients.
