Firm Information

LeClairRyan is a full-service law firm offering clients the talent of approximately 375 attorneys in more than 80 practice areas, including architects and engineer defense, errors and omission defense, commercial contracts and construction law. With 23 offices in 12 states and Washington, D.C., we have proactively positioned ourselves to offer clients the benefit of local insight with national reach.

Our firm has replaced the traditional law firm model of organizing attorneys around common legal specialties with a functional business team approach that groups attorneys, from multiple practice areas and geographies, together by the industries that we serve. By organizing our firm in this manner, we enable our attorneys to share and leverage industry information and resources, which in turn facilitates relationships that enable us to fulfill our clients’ business needs. In every matter we handle—from corporate and transactional to litigation and advocacy services—we are our clients’ business partner and trusted advisor.
