Our size lets us provide a broad range of legal services at a level of sophistication usually associated with larger markets without losing the human touch that you’d expect from a smaller law firm. We offer a full array of transactional services: from complex M&A and tax work to benefits packages and ESOPs, and we can help you to realize your financial goals—either for yourself or your business. We’re proud of the long-term relationships that we’ve built with our business clients. Many of them are concentrated in certain industries, like construction, mining, and health care. We’ve made it a point to learn the business side of those fields to better help our clients. Our practices page lists our key areas of focus.

On the litigation side, we have a team of experienced trial lawyers who are fiercely driven to protect our clients’ interests. We handle everything from cutting-edge complex and multidistrict litigation and high-profile white-collar criminal investigations to more traditional commercial disputes and personal-injury lawsuits. And our lawyers actually try cases; we love the courtroom, and our willingness to get in front of a jury helps us to maximize our clients’ position.

While it’s true that we aggressively represent our clients, both in the boardroom and the courtroom, our firm culture is based on being approachable and supportive. When our clients were asked what it’s like to partner with us, they responded with words like “responsive,” “easy to work with,” and said that our “uncompromised ethics” make our attorneys trusted advisors for their business and legal needs.

We don’t let geography hold us back. Many of our clients are regional, national, or international companies. Whether by using technology or traveling to meet face to face, we work with clients all over Virginia, the east coast, and beyond. And we’re able to provide clients with national and international support through our affiliation with ALFA International, a legal network of more than 9,000 attorneys in 150 law firms throughout the United States and in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. Wherever clients need legal representation, Gentry Locke can ensure that a trusted firm will have a lawyer there to protect their business interests.
