Our talent in Washington, DC is infused with people who have experience and relationships with those driving the country’s agenda.
A number of professionals in our Washington office served in Congress or held leadership or general counsel positions within agencies like HUD, the IRS, the FTC, the SEC or the FDA. Others have worked extensively with international development programs, such as the World Bank’s community and housing development programs.
So it is no surprise that Washington, DC is home to our affordable housing, community development, and tax credit finance practices—the largest and most sophisticated in the nation. Our insider contacts and perspective in this industry is unmatched. But we also offer highly creative minds that are constantly considering solutions to tomorrow’s challenges to their thinking about today’s transactions. Our focus on green development and social benefit investing are just two examples.
Our Washington office talent also includes corporate, litigation, intellectual property and tax attorneys who are involved in major financing transactions, regulatory issues and protection of company interests.
One of our core values is to bring Nixon Peabody to the community, and the community to Nixon Peabody. In addition to an active pro bono program, many lawyers, professionals and staff in the Washington office dedicate substantial time to mentoring programs, board memberships, volunteer and advisory services to nonprofits, and community service and we often host meetings and events for community partners. We are committed to our clients, to each other and to the communities in which we live and work.
