Washington, D.C.

The Bradley office in Washington, D.C., opened in 1999 as a governmental affairs-focused shop, then expanded in 2005 when a group of five law firm partners and several associates joined the firm, including current office managing partner Doug Patin. The influx of legal talent enriched our capabilities with practice experience in construction, government contracts, white collar, antitrust, and insurance law.

Our Washington location has continued to recruit highly regarded attorneys who fit the Bradley profile of providing responsive and effective client service while maintaining the highest level of ethics. In recent years, the office added a former U.S. attorney, several high-profile litigators, and other lawyers with extensive experience in financial services compliance and government contracts. Our attorneys work in both the private sector and the government, and maintain relationships with senior government officials to facilitate efficient advancement of our clients’ goals.

Like the entire Bradley law firm, the Washington office makes community service a priority. Among the many organizations we sponsor or contribute to are the Helping Up Mission, Network 2000, the Tahirih Justice Center, and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Inc.

Our Washington office and its attorneys have been recognized for their work with numerous accolades in recent years:

  • Six of our Washington, D.C., team are listed in The Best Lawyers® for 2018.
  • Seventeen attorneys were recognized as 2017 Washington, D.C., Super Lawyers or Rising Stars. 
  • The firm earned the top ranking in Chambers–D.C. for Construction in 2017, and two attorneys were named leading lawyers for business.
