Hollingsworth LLP Celebrates 40 Years as a National Presence in Complex Litigation Defense
Founded in 1982, the award-winning Washington, DC firm – led by namesake partner Joe Hollingsworth – is widely regarded as one of the nation’s leading litigation defense firms.
For forty years, specializing in complex litigation, the Firm has represented and delivered wins for clients of all sizes, in all industries and in all stages of the litigation life cycle. It is not uncommon to find us at the forefront of some of the highest-profile matters for some of the largest corporations in the country, and alongside some of the sharpest experts and consultants in the world. While our practice spans the full spectrum of litigation, the majority of our work is for corporate clients in the areas of business interruption and commercial disputes, class action defense, construction and engineering, environmental, insurance, investigations, federal claims, government contracts, natural resource damages, pharmaceutical products and medical devices, risk mitigation and management, and toxic torts and products liability.
We are called upon to solve our clients’ toughest litigation problems nationwide and as a result regularly have the lead in landmark cases and on cutting-edge litigation theories and defenses. 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, and we 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 volume of our 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. We offer efficiencies 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 litigation challenges of all sizes.
As we reflect on this anniversary and four decades of accomplishments, we are most indebted to our clients, many of whom we have represented almost from the beginning and who have become our friends. We extend our heartfelt thanks to you for your trust and collaboration with us on many matters of import and significance.
