Hollingsworth LLP is among the nation’s leading litigation firms. All of our lawyers specialize in complex trial and appellate work. We handle any litigation challenge, but the majority of our work is for corporate clients in the areas of pharmaceutical products, toxic torts and products liability, environmental, insurance, federal claims, financial institutions, government contracts, medical devices, and white collar defense. Our clients are multi-national blue chip companies, large and small domestic businesses, an array of directors and officers, and other individuals. We are called upon to solve our clients’ toughest litigation problems nationwide and, in consequence, we regularly have the lead in landmark cases and on cutting-edge litigation theories and defenses. We work with the most impressive experts and consultants in the world. Because we have the tenacity and skill to win at trial and on appeal, we increase the likelihood of successful resolution at earlier stages of a case as well. Hollingsworth LLP offers efficiencies unmatched at larger general practice firms and depth and experience unmatched at boutiques.
We host private seminars for our clients, including the country’s longest-running seminar on complex litigation defense. For the past thirty years, Hollingsworth LLP has hosted its acclaimed, CLE-accredited seminar, focusing on the defense of complex litigation and drawing on our vast experience in the areas of products liability and toxic torts, pharmaceutical, environmental, natural resource damages, insurance, investigations, federal claims, and government contracts defense. Leading litigators and experts share their insights gleaned from years of experience in the defense of complex civil litigation arising in the United States and abroad. Year after year, in-house counsel and corporate leaders return for provocative presentations and discussion. Attendance is restricted to corporate in-house counsel, members of the defense bar, and others similarly aligned in the defense of complex litigation on behalf of corporate clients.
Our attorneys are regularly called upon to lecture and write on issues involving our areas of expertise. We have taught law school courses, authored leading treatises, spoken at national conferences for judges and lawyers, and served on the editorial staff of media outlets. We independently advance our clients’ interests through our memberships in, among others, the American Law Institute, Atlantic Legal Foundation, Defense Research Institute, International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC), Lawyers for Civil Justice, Products Liability Advisory Council, Sedona Conference, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce National Litigation Center’s Constitutional and Administrative Law Committee, and Washington Legal Foundation.
Hollingsworth LLP attorneys serve on boards and committees of such varied local and national organizations as the United States Chamber of Commerce, the Law and Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law, the Democratic National Committee, D.C. Public Library Foundation, Community Foundation for Montgomery County (Maryland), Leadership Maryland, and Chesapeake Legal Alliance (a non-profit dedicated to using the law to improve the quality of the Chesapeake Bay).
We support our community as both lawyers and business people. Maintaining our only office in the District of Columbia, we encourage pro bono representation through the District of Columbia Bar Association and other local organizations. We participate in local fundraisers for charitable groups, such as the annual Lawyers Have Heart 10k, the Whitman Walker AIDS Walk, Gifts for the Homeless, and Breast Cancer Awareness activities.
