A fledgling law firm from Capitol Hill is putting down roots in downtown Richmond.
Innovista Law, a three-attorney firm that was started in Washington, D.C., in September, has leased a space at 115 E. Broad St. that it plans to turn into its new home base later this year.
Founded by attorneys Joseph Bowser and David Carter, Innovista is still in the process of setting itself up to practice in Virginia. Bowser and Carter studied law at the University of Virginia and William and Mary, respectively.
Bowser said they were drawn to Richmond by the local business scene, particularly the area’s entrepreneurial firms.
“It just ticked a lot of boxes for us; we’re a telecommunication and technology-based law firm, practicing for entrepreneurs,” Bowser said. “Richmond has a developed entrepreneurial scene.”
