OUR FIRM

Potomac Law is committed to innovation, excellence, and professionalism. Our value stems directly from the talent and commitment of our attorneys who practice law throughout the United States. Our attorneys have outstanding academic credentials and impressive professional experience, with an average of fifteen years at top national firms and/or in-house at major corporations. Clients recognize our attorneys’ skills and creative strategies, as well as their common sense and practical solutions.

MODERN

We use a modern business model that eliminates much of the costly overhead and over-staffing traditionally associated with large law firms. Through our innovative approach to law firm management and use of technology, we are able to offer clients exactly what they are seeking: sophisticated legal advice from knowledgeable attorneys at attractive rates. We define our success based upon our ability to support our clients’ businesses. Clients pay only for highly experienced legal advisors, not unnecessary overhead typically associated with traditional law firms, such as lavish office space, junior associate training, and other expenses that offer little direct value to clients. We serve as counsel to clients in a wide range of industries and developmental phases, from Fortune 500 companies to early-stage startups.

EXPERIENCED

Our attorneys have an average of fifteen years of legal experience. Before joining Potomac Law, they were partners, counsel and senior associates at internationally recognized law firms, legal counsel at multinational corporations, and professors at top-ranking law schools. In addition to distinguished legal careers, many of our attorneys have experience working in business, consulting, entrepreneurship, and the government. Their depth of experience, coupled with a pragmatic business approach, ensures that our clients receive practical advice in a responsive manner.

EFFICIENT

Our use of the latest technology to practice law in a low-overhead environment enables us to deliver efficient legal services to our clients. In addition to reduced hourly rates, we offer clients a wide range of fee arrangements, including flat fees, alternative fees, and contingency-based billing.

FLEXIBLE

Our firm supports our clients in a way that makes the most sense for their business. Depending on a client’s business strategies and goals, our attorneys will work under a wide range of arrangements. Whether the project requires a team of our most experienced transactional lawyers on a cross-border transaction, filling a gap in a client’s in-house team on an ongoing basis or answering a specific question, we work directly with our clients to ensure that they have the support for success at all stages.
