Establishing McGuireWoods in the city more than a century ago, today the Richmond office anchors the firm's coast-to-coast presence. Richmond is the firm's largest office, with approximately 250 lawyers calling it home, and it's where many firm leaders reside, including our chairman and managing partner. The office also serves as a pivotal Southeast corridor base for McGuireWoods Consulting, the law firm's full-service public affairs subsidiary. In addition to representing some of the largest local companies and institutions, many Richmond lawyers maintain regional, national and international practices - all backed by a firm with 1,100 lawyers in 21 offices worldwide. Richmond business, industry, government and individuals frequently turn to McGuireWoods for representation in matters of critical importance, including corporate, real estate, litigation and finance. All firm practice groups are represented in the Richmond office. Our lawyers' skills are put to good use in Richmond, which is home to the Supreme Court of Virginia, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The Virginia General Assembly meets here, and most state administrative agencies are based in Richmond. In addition, the 5th District of the Federal Reserve System, which serves four states and the District of Columbia, is based in the city. Committed to McGuireWoods' core value of service to our clients and the communities in which we live and work, Richmond lawyers and staff give back to the city by supporting area organizations such as the American Red Cross, Communities in Schools, Rebuilding Together, Cristo Rey School, Salvation Army, Oak Grove- Bellmeade School, Boys and Girls Clubs, Massey Cancer Center, American Heart Association and the Greater Richmond YMCA. The Richmond office supports our U.S. veterans through pro bono and other outreach programming via local veterans' clinics and organizations such as the Lewis B. Puller Jr. Veterans' Benefits Clinic at the William and Mary School of Law; and Freedom House, a Richmond shelter providing temporary housing to local veterans.
