Washington, DC
Located on the north bank of the Potomac River and bordered by the states of Virginia to the southwest and Maryland to the other sides, Washington, DC has a resident population of close to 600,000, but because of commuters from the surrounding suburbs, its population rises to more than 1 million during the work week. Adams and Reese is located in the heart of the government and provides comprehensive representation for clients who interact with the public sector, working with government at the federal, state and local levels. The centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are located in the District, as are many of the nation's monuments and museums. Washington, DC hosts 174 foreign embassies as well as the headquarters of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organization of American States (OAS), the Inter-American Development Bank, and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). The headquarters of other institutions such as trade unions, lobbying groups, and professional associations are also located in the District.

With an ever-growing, diversified economy there is an increasing percentage of professional and business service jobs. The District also has growing industries not directly related to government, especially in the areas of education, finance, public policy, and scientific research.

One of Washington DC's most well-known attractions, the National Mall is a large, open park area in the center of the city, and located in the center of the Mall is the Washington Monument. Also located on the mall are the Lincoln Memorial, the National World War II Memorial at the east end of the Reflecting Pool, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Albert Einstein Memorial. The National Archives houses thousands of documents important to American history including the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Located directly south of the mall, the Tidal Basin features rows of Japanese cherry blossom trees that were presented as gifts from the nation of Japan. The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and the District of Columbia War Memorial are located around the Tidal Basin. In addition to the countless historical monuments, the national mall is surrounded by several Smithsonian Institution Museums. An educational foundation chartered by Congress in 1846, the Smithsonian Institution maintains most of the nation's official museums and galleries, 17 of which are located in Washington, DC.

The District's 16 medical centers and hospitals make it a national center for patient care and medical research. Children's National Medical Center is among the highest ranked pediatric hospitals in the country according to U.S. News and World Report.

Washington, DC is a great place to do business, and to work, live and enjoy.
