Firm Details

Berenzweig Leonard is a dynamic business law firm comprised of an experienced and dedicated group of attorneys based in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region. Our mission is to provide a client-focused approach to lawyering, serving the needs of our clients above all else. We provide clients with a full suite of legal services, making Berenzweig Leonard a one-stop-shop for business, executive, and creative clients.

At every stage of the commercial life cycle, we serve our clients by ensuring that they are protected to the maximum extent, and when called upon, defending them and their businesses vigorously by means of diligent and aggressive representation. We understand the critical importance of positive and cost-effective outcomes, and we listen intently to ensure that our legal approach is closely aligned with the practical goals and business needs of our clients.

Whether you are an executive with questions about your employment, a business owner looking to improve operations, a government contractor with a potential claim or protest, or an artist looking to protect your rights and maximize your brand, the attorneys at Berenzweig Leonard have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide sound advice and counsel. Our deep familiarity with employment and labor law, business litigation, government contracts, and high-level transactional work makes us ideally suited to serve businesses of all types and sizes, including those working in specialized industries such as technology and government contracting. In fact, our professionals pride themselves on their abilities to counsel clients through the complex network of laws and regulations operative in such specialized fields as data security and cybersecurity, intellectual property, sports and media, and complex software.

While we always seek amicable resolutions and timely achievement of our clients’ objectives, when it is necessary to proceed to litigation, our team defends its clients’ interests by means of forceful and decisive legal action. We have extensive litigation experience in the state and federal courts of Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, and New York, and we regularly represent government contractors before the federal agencies, U.S. Court of Federal Claims, Government Accountability Office, and Boards of Contract Appeals. Our firm also coordinates with in-house and out-of-state attorneys throughout the country to serve as outside and local counsel in our local state and federal courts, including the “Rocket Docket” federal court located in Alexandria.

Our experience, broad skill set, and the premium we place on client satisfaction and growing your revenue has made our firm a well-respected presence in the legal community. We look forward to working with you and applying our dynamic and creative approach to your legal needs.
