Since its inception in 1972, Hughes Hubbard’s Washington, D.C. office has remained rooted in the firm’s traditional practices—litigation, arbitration, and corporate transactions—and has developed regulatory specialties typically found in sophisticated Washington practices.
Washington litigators handle cases throughout the nation, and coordinate multinational litigation throughout the world, in a wide range of substantive areas. They are highly experienced as advocates and arbitrators in domestic and international arbitration and serve in senior positions with U.S. and international arbitration organizations. The office also houses some of the firm’s leading practices, including international trade, securities litigation and enforcement, professional liability, global accounting regulatory matters, financial services reorganization, corporate compliance, and anti-corruption and internal investigations. Many of the partners are members of the firm’s appellate practice and frequently advise clients and colleagues on briefs submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal and state appellate courts.
Located a few blocks from the White House, the office is at the center of government regulatory activity. It has a number of former government officials who provide firm clients with insight into the expectations of government regulators and enforcement officials. Washington attorneys have served in various government agencies, including the Department of Commerce, the International Trade Commission, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Department of State, the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, and the Canadian Department of Justice.
Hughes Hubbard’s Washington lawyers involve themselves in the community by providing pro bono legal services in a wide range of areas, often by working in conjunction with local and national legal service organizations. Attorneys also participate in many local, national, and international bar associations, chair committees of the American Bar Association, participate in fundraising for various service organizations, and take leadership roles in community organizations.
