About DiMuroGinsberg, PC

DiMuroGinsberg is a litigation and business law firm operating in Alexandria, Virginia since 1990.  The firm practices in the areas of corporate and commercial law, business torts, business disputes, RICO, criminal law, employment law, professional liability and ethics, intellectual property and patent cases (local counsel only).  The firm also has a strong complementary corporate law and business law practice.

Due to DiMuroGinsberg’s lawyers’ regular practice in the Court and frequent appearances before the judges of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the firm is often called upon to act as lead or local counsel for corporate counsel and out of state clients and law firms unfamiliar with the local rules and practices of the unusually efficient federal court in Alexandria, the legendary “Rocket Docket.”

To be eligible for a “Best Law Firms” ranking, law firms must have at least one lawyer listed in the current edition of The Best Lawyers in America list.  DiMuroGinsberg is honored to have three of our partners listed, Bernard J. DiMuro for Commercial Litigation, C. Thomas Hicks III for Business Organizations (including LLC’s and Partnerships), Corporate Law, Real Estate Law and Jonathan Mook for Employment – Management.
