McGuireWoods LLP is a U.S. law firm with more than 1,100 lawyers in 22 offices across the United States and Europe. The firm's largest offices are in Richmond, VA, Charlotte, NC, and Chicago, IL.


In 1834, Egbert R. Watson began his law practice in Charlottesville, Virginia. He later formed a partnership in 1870 with George Perkins, and in 1936 the firm became Perkins, Battle & Minor. The firm expanded in the following decades and, following the 1966 merger of Battle, Neal, Harris, Minor & Williams with McGuire, Woods, King, Davis & Patterson, became known as McGuire, Woods and Battle.[1] In 1987, McGuire, Woods and Battle merged with Boothe, Prichard & Dudley to become McGuire, Woods, Battle & Boothe. In 2000, the firm changed its name to McGuireWoods LLP.

The firm’s consulting subsidiary, McGuireWoods Consulting, opened in 1998.[1]
