Firm Details

Look out any window from Groom’s offices on Pennsylvania Avenue and you’ll see a panorama of official Washington that takes in the White House, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court, and numerous federal office buildings.

It’s a view that could not be more appropriate for Groom. The firm has been at the forefront of developments in the nation’s employee benefits laws since Congress passed ERISA in 1974, drawing many of its attorneys from the federal agencies that regulate employee benefits and forging strong ties with key players in all three branches of government.

With over 80 attorneys dedicated to the employee benefits practice, Groom offers clients unparalleled coverage of issues and disputes arising from ERISA, the Tax Code, securities laws, HIPAA, COBRA, ADEA, and the many other laws that govern employee benefits. Working in eight different practice groups, Groom’s attorneys build upon their diverse backgrounds to share a common understanding of employee benefits law that enables them to integrate their efforts across areas of specialization to produce the best results for their clients. The firm prides itself on offering state-of-the-art advice on best practices and emerging trends in employee benefits to a diverse group of clients across the country. Groom emphasizes a team approach to clients that assures responsive and efficient service.
