Most didn’t go to business school, but many corporate lawyers say they always dreamed of starting their own company. Maybe it was the control freak in them that couldn’t quite stomach the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience of launching and running a new company. So they found another way to sit at the table — by advising on business transactions. As many readily admit, now they live the dream through their clients. They feel the thrill of taking a company public without the anxiety of having to answer to stockholders. They pump their fist in the air when a client gets acquired by a bigger player, but they don’t feel the pain of giving up their baby. Deal makers, especially in the Washington, D.C., area, don’t necessarily specialize in one type of business transaction. It’s more about carrying a client through the different phases of a company’s life. From finding venture capital to making acquisitions to going public, D.C. corporate lawyers handle just about anything. The following 10 lawyers have been the silent architects behind some of the biggest business deals in the Washington region. Their clients include industry giants, serial entrepreneurs, and guys you’ve never heard of who may be the next Steve Case. At least they hope so.
