Hollingsworth LLP Celebrates 39 Years as a National Presence in Complex Litigation.

Founded in 1982, the Washington, DC firm – led by namesake partner Joe Hollingsworth – is widely regarded as one of the nation’s preeminent litigation defense firms.

For thirty-nine years, specializing in complex litigation, the Firm has delivered wins for a diverse range of clients that include, among others, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers in mass tort products liability litigation, chemical companies and site owners in toxic tort and environmental litigation, financial institutions managing claims of catastrophic economic loss, government contractors involved in bid protests and related claims, companies facing both government and internal investigations, and corporate policyholders pursuing insurance recoveries.  We work with our clients to achieve not only jury and bench trial verdicts, but also pre-trial summary judgments, post-trial appellate decisions, third-party allocations of responsibility, and negotiated settlements.  Our experience extends beyond traditional litigation and counseling into innovative alternative dispute resolution in domestic and international forums.

Often called upon to solve our clients’ toughest challenges, Hollingsworth LLP regularly has the lead in landmark cases and on cutting-edge legal theories and defenses.  The Firm's attorneys have successfully tried cases in courts across the country and handled appeals before many federal and state appellate courts, including the United States Supreme Court.  The sheer number of the Firm’s reported federal and state victories stands as testament to the scope of our practice and the Firm’s record of success.

In a world of constant mergers and mega-firms, Hollingsworth LLP is unique by design.  The Firm strives to offer efficiencies that are unmatched by larger, general-practice firms, and depth and experience unmatched by boutique firms.  In the words of The National Law Journal in naming the Firm to its Midsize Hot List®, “Big cases don’t necessarily demand big law firms.”   Indeed, Hollingsworth LLP is well equipped to handle any litigation challenge.

It’s been an honor and a privilege to partner with an impressive list of local and national business interests, including multi-national blue chip companies, large and small domestic businesses, and an array of corporate officers, directors, and other key business personnel.  As we reflect on this anniversary and our many accomplishments, the Firm is most indebted to our clients, many of whom we have represented for more than three decades.  We extend our heartfelt thanks to you.
