Batzel Law PLLC

“I have a passion for helping entrepreneurs succeed by protecting their interests and promoting their business growth. I’ve enjoyed the satisfaction of successfully managing complex international deals and multi-million dollar acquisitions, but no thrill compares to working side-by-side with the founder as a new enterprise is brought to life.”
– Heather Batzel, Esq.

After a decade of corporate legal practice in the heart of Washington, DC, Heather Batzel opened Batzel Law PLLC in 2013. Representing the World Bank in international transactions, positioning new companies for success, serving as General Counsel at a start-up company with contracts executed on six continents, and handling corporate and securities deals from Main Street to Wall Street have seasoned this corporate attorney and given her a broad, savvy perspective, keen insights and down-to-earth understanding of the needs that arise in day-to-day business operations. Heather is a strategic corporate counsel, an expert contract drafter, a skilled negotiator, and in all cases a zealous advocate of her clients. Heather’s goal since opening the doors of her own firm has been to work hand-in-hand with entrepreneurs and emerging companies, providing top corporate, securities and business legal advice to help them achieve their goals. She has worked with companies at all developmental stages and of all sizes but now focuses on providing new and growing companies, and their founders and executives, with legal counsel throughout the full life cycle of their companies. Heather holds a Bachelor of Science from Carnegie Mellon University and a Juris Doctor from American University. Heather is licensed in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
