Washington, D.C.

Helping international clients successfully shape and navigate U.S. government regulations and enforcement, King & Spalding’s Washington, D.C. office has been home to a former Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, several Assistant Attorneys General, members of Congress, and myriad other elected and appointed government officials since the late 1970s.


Our Special Matters and Investigations lawyers rigorously advocate for clients facing inquiry from the DOJ, SEC and many other agencies. The team also conducts internal investigations and compliance counseling.

The DC office’s Government Advocacy and Public Policy (GAPP) division offers direct client interface with multiple government branches. Clients draw upon longstanding relationships, particularly in the House and Senate floor leadership structures, and with numerous executive agencies.

The Congressional Investigations team leverages these relationships and decades of experience gained on both sides of these investigations as it represents clients subpoenaed by Congress.

Our D.C.-based Appellate, Constitutional & Administrative Law practice represents clients in appeals before the U.S. Supreme Court, federal and state appellate courts, government agencies, and national and international arbitration panels.  

The office is home to a number of top tier regulatory practices, including Healthcare, FDA, FERC and Environmental, each of which includes highly experienced lawyers who have held leadership positions as former regulators. 

The firm’s International Trade practice is also headquartered in Washington, D.C., handling a wide range of international trade and customs matters for U.S. and non-U.S. clients.
