FH+H, with its main office in Woodbridge, announced that it made “Inc Magazine’s” list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
Having grown at a rate of 812 percent over the past three years, the Washington area law firm ranked as the country’s number one fastest-growing law firm, and 556th on the list of all private companies.
FH+H is the 27th fastest-growing private Virginia company and the 44th fastest-growing private company in the Washington metro area.
FH+H is a value-based law firm that serves as advocate, counsel and champion for hundreds of companies and individuals worldwide, according to a news release.
Started by one lawyer in one office with one client, FH+H has rapidly grown to eight practice groups: Business and Corporate, Administrative and Regulatory, Mergers and Acquisitions, Litigation and Investigations, International Trade and Transactions, Employment and Labor, Government Contracts, Non-Profit and Charities, along with Trusts and Estates.
FH+H’s attorneys include a former White House lawyer, a former Supreme Court law clerk, two former federal prosecutors, five combat veterans and six lawyers with security clearances.

“From service at the highest levels of government in Washington to combat zones overseas including Iraq and Afghanistan, our two dozen attorneys and staff are experts in winning victories from the courtroom to the battlefield,” said founder Joseph Fluet.
FH+H’s offices maintain a small firm atmosphere well suited to general purpose legal affairs in the Washington area.
