WASHINGTON, D.C.—Womble Bond Dickinson D.C. Partner Pam Rothenberg has been elected a Washington Trustee of the Federal City Council.

The Federal City Council focuses the creativity, talents, and resources of the Washington, D.C. area’s business and professional community on major challenges and opportunities facing the District.  The Council works without publicity, reflecting its emphasis on civic improvement rather than on self-promotion.  Although the Council acts expeditiously and responds immediately to urgent needs, it also commits itself for the long term, recognizing that fundamental structural improvements in the District of Columbia’s economic, physical, educational, and social welfare systems require years of dedicated, untiring, and relentless work.

Becoming a Trustee in the Federal City Council is by invitation only. Each year, the Council recruits and meets with top-level leaders in the region who have demonstrated a commitment to community engagement and a passion for improving the District of Columbia.  By reaching out to these candidates, the Council is able to gather talented and influential leaders who are dedicated to moving forward the goals and mission of the organization.

Pam Rothenberg founded and leads the firm’s Impact Business Group, where she and the firm’s 40+ person Impact Team counsel companies in the growing Impact Economy, ranging from large legacy businesses to newly formed entrepreneurial ventures, to facilitate their participation in Impact and ESG, and to help them capture opportunities through the integration of Impact and ESG principles into their core businesses. She also has extensive experience in a wide range of commercial real estate transactions, with a concentrated focus on multifamily assets, having worked with clients to acquire, sell, develop, lease and finance major commercial, multi-family, and mixed-use projects.
