The DC Advantage
Positioning all of our attorneys in a single office at the center of employee benefits in Washington, DC, enables us to provide collaborative thinking and a breadth of experience to our clients in a cost-effective manner.
Critical to our knowledge and experience is involvement "on the ground" in all aspects of the legislative and regulatory process. Groom attorneys are routinely involved in the development of legislation and our attorneys frequently comment on new legislation and interact directly with regulatory bodies in developing guidance. Several of our attorneys came to the firm directly from their service in government and we draw on the depth of this government experience to develop innovative and well-founded strategies for disputes in the courtroom, regulatory investigations, and a host of other matters.
From our offices we can see the White House, Congress, and many of the federal agencies that regulate our clients on a day-to-day basis. It is merely a short walk or taxicab ride to meetings with legislators and regulators who shape the rules essential to the operation of employee benefit plans. Knowledge, relationships, access, experience – all part of the D.C. advantage that Groom delivers.
