Who is PilieroMazza?
PilieroMazza PLLC is a Washington, D.C. law firm with a strong national reputation and international practice. Our clients operate throughout the U.S. and around the world spanning virtually all industries. Many of our clients are government contractors, while others are commercial businesses, non-profit organizations, trade associations, tribal entities, and foreign companies. We work with both small organizations, for which we often function as a virtual in-house counsel, to major enterprises where we work hand-in-hand with the firm’s general counsel.
Now in its third decade, PilieroMazza is committed to providing superior, responsive service that consistently exceeds our clients’ expectations – because we believe nurturing your business is the key to our success. We accomplish this mission through sophisticated legal and business guidance in a diverse array of industries and subject matters. Examples of our services include procurement-related protests and litigation; establishing joint ventures, mentor/protégé arrangements, and other corporate transactions; mergers and acquisitions; employee training and handbooks; and internal compliance audits. We also help both experienced and new government contractors navigate the complex regulatory maze before various civilian and defense agencies.
In addition to government contracting, we provide our clients with a full range of legal services including corporate, labor & employment, and litigation matters. In these areas, we routinely assist clients with mergers and acquisitions, internal investigations, business and joint venture formation, employee training, agreements, and handbooks, Service Contract Act and other labor law compliance, and civil litigation, among many other matters. Our clients value their ability to obtain a diverse array of legal guidance from our experienced team of attorneys.
We keep our clients abreast of the issues that matter most to them through our quarterly newsletter, Legal Advisor, as well as the PilieroMazza Weekly Update, PilieroMazza Client Alerts, and frequent informational seminars and webinars. Several times a week, we update of our blog, The PM Legal Minute, which provides trending insight to small and mid-sized businesses.
We provide this broad range of services with a focus on results, responsiveness, and cost efficiency. This sets us apart from other law firms and has allowed us to develop and cultivate many long-standing relationships. In fact, many of our clients have been with the firm since its inception.
PilieroMazza opened its doors in the early 1980s under the leadership of Daniel J. Piliero II. Mr. Piliero had experience with corporate and trade association law, as well as litigation. When he started the firm, Mr. Piliero recruited a team of smart, energetic, hard-working attorneys committed to providing legal counsel with a high level of personal service. That commitment continues to this day and is an integral part of who we are.
In the early years of the firm, the practice quickly expanded into government relations and government contracting. Unfortunately, in the midst of the firm’s growth Mr. Piliero unexpectedly passed away. At this critical crossroad, his junior partner and several of the young attorneys renewed their commitment to the firm and redoubled their efforts to carry the practice forward – gaining invaluable perspectives on the demands of leading a business that serve us well when imparting guidance to our clients. This group of attorneys is the heart of PilieroMazza today.
The firm has continued to grow and is recognized for its strong capabilities in the Small Business Administration’s procurement programs. This strength is truly unique in the field and has become a key component of who we are.
