From U.S. locations in Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, South Bend, Des Moines, Minneapolis and Washington, D.C. to international locations in Beijing, Shanghai and London, we serve clients in every U.S. state and more than 100 countries.
Our legal expertise includes corporate; environmental; ERISA, benefits and executive compensation; finance and restructuring; government; intellectual property; labor and employment; litigation and advocacy; real estate and construction; regulatory; tax; and wealth management. Our practices are complemented by 16 industry teams, including more than 150 lawyers in food and agriculture; banking and financial services; life sciences; and energy, resources and clean technology.
Some situations call for expertise that extends beyond legal advice. Based in Washington, D.C., FaegreBD Consulting is our national advisory and advocacy division that integrates public policy and regulatory capabilities with the rest of the firm's legal services. Consulting professionals work at the intersection of the federal government and clients in sectors such as health and biosciences, energy and environment, education, local government, and financial services. FaegreBD Equity Property Tax Group, based in our Chicago office, advises clients in property tax matters.
