Located in one of the fastest-growing and vibrant areas in the country, McGuireWoods’ Raleigh office anchors the Research Triangle region. As the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh has established a solid foothold in business, biotech, research and education. The Research Triangle is home to more than 170 global companies and three major research universities. Because of the needs of our clients and other businesses in this region and beyond, the Raleigh office has assembled a core team of lawyers with extensive experience in the life sciences, healthcare, education and energy industries. Raleigh’s lawyers bring a unique depth of experience in financial services litigation, government investigations, product and consumer litigation, medical malpractice, toxic torts and environmental litigation. Our Raleigh lawyers take active roles in government relations, public affairs and regulatory matters. Many have enjoyed accomplished careers in public service — as well as top leadership positions with regional, national and global companies — prior to making McGuireWoods their home. The Raleigh office also features McGuireWoods’ full-service public affairs subsidiary, McGuireWoods Consulting LLC, which offers government relations and strategic communications services. The leaders for the firm’s Energy practice and Energy Litigation groups also reside in the Raleigh office. In addition to representing area companies and institutions, many of the Raleigh lawyers maintain practices that are regional, national and international in scope, all backed by a firm with more than 1,000 lawyers in 23 offices. Demonstrating their commitment to McGuireWoods’ core value of service to our clients and the communities in which we live and work, the lawyers and staff of the Raleigh office have served in leadership roles and as volunteers in local organizations such as the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, Hospice of Wake County, Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County, Food Bank of North Carolina, North Carolina Golden Leaf Foundation and Leadership Raleigh 22, among others.
