Hollingsworth LLP is among the nation’s leading litigation firms. For over three decades, Hollingsworth LLP has focused its practice on complex litigation matters. We are nationally recognized as a “go-to” litigation firm for our work on high-stakes cases. Our attorneys have successfully tried cases in “judicial hellholes” across the country and on more fair playing fields as well. Our appellate experience extends to the United States Supreme Court, and we have argued extensively in the United States Circuit Courts and before many state supreme and intermediate appellate courts. Our record of success is reflected in the many reported federal and state cases in which we have been lead counsel. Several of these represent key industry precedent.
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, natural resource damages, and white collar defense. Our clients are multi-national blue-chip companies, large and small domestic businesses, and 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. 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. We offer efficiencies unmatched at larger general practice firms and depth and experience unmatched at boutiques.
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 host seminars for our clients, including the country’s longest running annual seminar on complex litigation defense. We go in-house to teach counsel and their clients how their business affects the course of litigation and vice versa. We work with the most impressive experts and consultants in the world.
We maintain our only office in the District of Columbia, and we support our community as both lawyers and business people. We independently advance our clients’ interests through our memberships in, among others, the American Law Institute, Atlantic Legal Foundation, Chesapeake Legal Alliance (a non-profit dedicated to using the law to improve the quality of the Chesapeake Bay), Council for Court Excellence, Defense Research Institute, International Association of Defense Counsel, Law and Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law, Lawyers for Civil Justice, National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel, Products Liability Advisory Council, Sedona Conference, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce National Litigation Center’s Constitutional & Administrative Law Committee, and Washington Legal Foundation. We encourage local 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.
