Washington, DC

Founded after the American Revolution, the nation's capital is a complex and layered city. Rich in American history, but known as a modern center of power, it’s an amazing place to live and work.

Formally the District of Columbia and commonly nicknamed “Washington” or “D.C.” or “the District,” the area includes nearly 1 million residents.

Adams and Reese provides comprehensive representation for clients who interact with the government at federal, state and local levels. Washington, D.C. 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 centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are 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. 

Monumental Attractions

Washington is known for its iconic and important monuments honoring famous politicians, historical figures and events. Not just for tourists, even Washingtonians frequently visit “the Mall,” enjoying a break in their business days or stealing a visit to a new exhibit in one of the museums.

One of Washington DC's most well-known attractions is the National Mall with the Washington Monument as the central focal point.
