In 1978, nearly a century after its founding in Philadelphia, Ballard Spahr began its national expansion with the opening of an office in Washington, D.C. Today, our Washington office is one of the firm's largest, offering services in a wide range of regulatory, transactional, finance, and litigation matters.


Our D.C. attorneys handle issues facing regulated industries and are recognized leaders in energy and project finance, housing, public finance and public-private partnerships, real estate, media law, mortgage banking, and tax.

Our real estate practice—representing clients locally, regionally, and nationally—is regarded as one of the best in the region. We handle a variety of commercial and residential real estate matters representing developers, private equity providers, lenders, and commercial sellers and purchasers. Housing is a particular area of focus.

Ballard Spahr's 2018 merger with First Amendment litigation powerhouse LSKS gives Ballard Spahr one of the largest and finest media law practices in the country. The group represents clients across media platforms and has been involved in many of the most significant First Amendment cases in recent years.

In the area of consumer finance, our litigators defend banks and corporations in matters involving federal and state consumer lending statutes. They also handle complex securities, UCC, civil rights, and employment litigation.

Our corporate attorneys are known for their work with investment management companies, EB-5 immigration investment funds, SPACs, oil and gas funds, and international master-feeder structures. Our mortgage banking team is based in Washington and advises clients on both the residential and commercial sides of the industry on regulatory, transactional, litigation, and enforcement matters.

At Ballard Spahr, we believe our clients are best served by innovative solutions that spring from varied viewpoints and perspectives. We are committed to creating a vibrant community where people of all backgrounds can thrive. The firm is ranked sixth in the nation for its percentage of female equity partners by The American Lawyer.

The D.C. office supports local affinity bar associations through sponsorships and job fair outreach to diverse law students.

We take an active role in the civic life of our communities and pro bono service is a hallmark of the firm. Our Washington attorneys devote hundreds of hours to pro bono cases every year.

Wendy D. Iversen, Director of Office Administration
