Williams Mullens’ unique blend of law, government relations and economic development in order to “find yes” for its clientele began in 1909 when Lewis Williams and James Mullen opened up the beginnings of the now-leading firm. Since the founding over 100 years back, the firm has grown from an office in Richmond, Virginia to a notorious AmLaw 200 firm with offices in two states, ten cities and the District of Columbia.
What sets Williams Mullen apart is their fully customizable strategic way of solving problems. The company has over 200 lawyers on-call in their ten offices, all of whom have different strengths and specialties, allowing the company to customize their strategy and services to find the best effective solution for the client.
This might be why Williams Mullen is so renowned in the world of law and business. The both the affiliates, attorneys and company itself are consistently recognized as leaders in the industry. Publications that have acknowledged Williams Mullen’s expertise include American Lawyer, BTI Brand Elite, Benchmark Litigation, Virginia Business and Super Lawyers from several different states.
In just Super Lawyers alone, individual attorneys from Williams Mullen get recognized for their superior skill and commitment each year. In 2011, in fact, almost 50 lawyers from Williams Mullen were named Super Lawyers, including Doug Nabhan (Super Lawyers profile) for his expertise in employment and labor law, and 35 Rising Stars. The numbers have remained relatively steady since then; just this past year many Williams Mullen attorneys from North Carolina were given the same title.
These prominent recognitions all show the growth and innovation that Williams Mullen has demonstrated in the past century. The company looks forward to another 100 years of expertise and success.
