In an economy driven by innovation, companies and investors require legal solutions as fast-moving and adaptable as they are. With more than 14 years of experience advising innovative companies and strategic investors, Mahvesh Qureshi understands how best to implement these solutions.

A Washington D.C. area-based partner in the firm's Corporate Practice Group, Mahvesh counsels corporations and private equity investors on corporate matters including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, commercial transactions, and corporate governance. Mahvesh has extensive experience advising clients in a range of industries including information technology, media, aerospace, defense, government services, and healthcare.

Representing major corporations, private equity and venture investors, and high-growth portfolio companies, Mahvesh oversees corporate matters from a diverse perspective. Based on her experience seeing corporate issues from "all sides of the table," Mahvesh believes that the best legal advice helps clients solve short-term problems quickly and enables businesses to effectively execute long-term strategies.

Mahvesh's passion for giving back and commitment to global issues has led her to advocate on behalf of worldwide poverty reduction, women's rights, and international development efforts. She led the firm's pro bono representation of a global non-governmental organization focused on international girls' education and provided governance and organizational advice to a government-led planning and disaster relief body. Mahvesh's pro bono work on behalf of international organizations has bolstered the firmwide commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative and its Girls and Women Initiative.
