Kaye Scholer's Washington, DC office was founded in 1980, on the conviction that the Firm's growing reputation as a national and international firm demanded a significant presence in the nation's capital.
With over 50 attorneys and professional consultants, the Washington office handles commercial litigation and transactional matters on both a domestic and international level and counsels clients on a wide range of business, administrative, and legislative matters.
A significant part of the work of these attorneys involves appearances before, and direct contact and negotiation with, administrative agencies and the Executive Branch of the United States government. The office handles litigation in jurisdictions throughout the country as well as overseas. We also work with the Congress on legislative matters, monitor legislation and provide comments and suggestions to committee staff members involved in drafting legislation.
