Gosia J. Bochenek leads the firm’s business services practice, which includes general business, contract, real estate, and commercial matters. She works with a diverse group of private sector clients, entrepreneurs, consultants, creatives, and nonprofit organizations across a variety of industries. As a seasoned attorney with two law schools (in Poland and the US) and 20 years of practice under her belt, she is valued for her expertise, down-to-earth approach to business issues, commitment, and efficiency.
Her goal is to serve as an outside general counsel to her business clients and provide comprehensive legal advice throughout the full life cycle of their enterprises, including business start-up issues, key operational contracts, risk management, corporate compliance, copyright and trademark protection, employment issues, incentive compensation, and mergers and acquisitions. Gosia works collaboratively with the firm’s trusts and estates attorneys on the implementation of comprehensive succession plans for business entities, designed to balance the client’s business objectives and personal goals.
Gosia started her legal career as a corporate associate in a large Connecticut firm. She worked with companies at all developmental stages and has gained extensive experience in commercial financings, banking, leasing and intellectual property matters.
Gosia is dedicated to community work. She served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Women Business Owners for over four years and helped many women business owners with legal matters. She currently serves as counsel on the Board of Directors of The Choralis Foundation.
Gosia periodically moonlights as a singer in a Washington area chorus. Music has always been her passion, and she had once enjoyed playing violin in a chamber ensemble. Besides music, she loves travel, books, gardens and anything history-related. She lives in Vienna with her husband and two children.
“Nothing makes me happier than helping a client embark on a business venture and then watching it grow into a thriving company.”- Gosia
