Home to the United States Congress, White House, and Supreme Court, thus despite its size, D.C. has one of the largest and most influential legal markets in the country. At first glance, one might think this market is limited to traditional constitutional law where orators argue philosophical underpinnings of the Constitution before the Supreme Court, or lobbyists persuading Representatives on new laws, but that’s not all Washington has up its sleeve.
