Despite great commercial growth in the past three decades, Rockville offers a small town setting only twenty minutes from the nation's capital and less than one hour from downtown Baltimore. Although Rockville and the surrounding Montgomery County area are a prime site for corporate headquarters, biotechnology research and development and shopping and entertainment complexes, traces of Rockville's history and small town charm have been carefully preserved.
Commercial litigation is the primary focus of the Rockville office of Miles & Stockbridge, reflecting a close, long-standing relationship with the Circuit Court for Montgomery County.
