In 2009, the Troutman Sanders Washington, D.C. office grew to incorporate Ross, Dixon & Bell's Washington D.C. office and now has over 100 attorneys and professionals. Our deep litigation bench focuses on an array of issues concerning insurance, white collar investigations, international trade, real estate and construction, and employment law. Our lawyers and professionals also provide counsel in many regulated areas, including energy, environment, climate change, international trade, transportation, telecommunications, health care, tax, and for associations and non-profits. Finally, TS Strategies helps firm clients address current issues in the White House and on Capitol Hill.
The Washington, D.C. office includes former White House officials, federal regulators, and counsel from various federal government agencies and key Congressional Committees, who can provide clients with the "inside thinking" and analysis necessary to affect change in Washington. The firm is respected in Washington for its substantive expertise and entrepreneurial approach to public policy issues affecting business and enjoys strong relations with Congress, the new Administration and Washington opinion leaders outside of government. Our office is located a few short blocks from Capitol Hill and is in close proximity to federal courts, regulatory agencies and other executive branch offices. The office has been instrumental in harnessing the firm's resources to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients before Congress, and numerous federal regulatory agencies. In addition, our pro bono practice is well-developed and active in Washington, D.C. supporting several local non-profit organizations and charities.
Beginning with three lawyers, Troutman Sanders' Washington, D.C. office opened in 1993 in response to the growing number of federal regulatory, legislative and public policy issues that affect both domestic and foreign clients. Ross Dixon & Bell's Washington, D.C. office began in 1983 and was then known as Ross, Dixon & Masback. The office grew steadily and built a national insurance and appellate litigation practice by representing insurers in nearly all of the highest-profile accounting scandal cases. Together with Troutman Sanders' white collar and corporate investigations practice, the combined firm provides clients valuable experience when dealing with Sarbanes-Oxley compliance issues, Securities and Exchange Commission disclosure and enforcement issues, and other corporate governance matters.
