McGuireWoods’ roots stretch back to 1834 in Charlottesville, Virginia, when Egbert R. Watson began his law practice. Today, the firm regularly serves the automotive, banking and financial services, chemicals, energy resources, food processing, general manufacturing, government, health care, insurance, real estate, retailing, sports and entertainment, technology and telecom, and transportation industries.
