PwC makes push into US legal market with launch of Washington DC firm

Team of lawyers set to relocate from London to launch new operation in US capital

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) is set to launch a law firm in the US, in a clear sign that the concerted push into legal services by the Big Four accounting firms is continuing.

The firm, called ILC Legal, will begin operating later this month with an office in Washington DC. It will not offer US law advice, but instead will assist US clients on international issues and act as a marketing operation to generate work that can be referred to PwC’s existing legal services network.
