From Our Clients

While we are honored to be acknowledged by our peers and by ranking organizations, the positive feedback and praise we receive from our clients means the most to us.


“It is a superb team with so much depth. It’s as though everyone knows everything and you get in-depth, current advice very quickly.”

–Client comments from the 2020 Chambers USA


“I believe Groom is an exceptional firm. They not only provide solid legal advice, they take the time to get to know our company and business—sometimes they feel more like an extension of our legal staff. Their contacts with the government are unmatched and they don’t hesitate to tap into those contacts for the benefit of the client.”


“The lawyers have deep expertise in their respective subject matters, are able to reduce technical matters to practical advice and are responsive and responsible service providers. Groom’s expertise and service level meets or exceeds the best in the business.”

–Client comments from the 2020 Chambers USA


“Provides great insight into the industry and regulators, which I cannot obtain elsewhere.”

–Client comments from the 2017 Chambers USA


“The team is a valuable resource on ERISA, fiduciary, and employee benefits law. They know our business and can get right to the legal issues without the need for extensive research.”


“The lawyers that we work with at Groom are extremely knowledgeable. Equally important, they are responsive, pragmatic and seem to genuinely care about our business. They are a pleasure to work with.”

–The Hershey Company


“Expertise, cost-consciousness, flexibility, and immediate availability. All of our offices—legal, human resources and financial—have come to think of them as not just our lawyers, but as part of our team.”
