Attorney Eric Gros-DuboisEric Gros-Dubois
Eric Gros-Dubois founded EPGD Business Law in 2013 and is the current head of the firm’s corporate, estate planning, and tax practice, and manages the firm’s Washington D.C. office. With a JD and MBA, and a specialization in finance, Eric is able to step back and view the legal world through a commercial lens while also acting as a trusted business advisor for his clients. He does his best to be solutions-oriented and tries to think like a business owner, not just a lawyer. When asked to identify his thoughts on practicing law, Eric answers without hesitation: “People aren’t hiring us to solve legal problems, they’re hiring us to solve personal problems.” With his hands-on approach, Eric works to build strong client-attorney relationships and finds himself intimately involved in each of his cases even after they’ve been resolved.

While a partner at a prominent firm located in Washington, DC, his path led him to Miami where he handled commercial transactions and business litigation. While attending law school, worked at a non-profit organization, a private equity group, and the Federal Tax clinic representing taxpayers before the U.S. Tax Courts, laying the foundation for the future of EPGD Business Law.
