Statement by BGR Group’s Chief Executive Officer Bob Wood

The attack on the U.S. Capitol yesterday was unacceptable and deeply troubling. As a bipartisan firm, BGR Group represents many different viewpoints. Our employees’ politics range across the spectrum. As professional advocates, we defend our clients’ positions fiercely. But we respect each other and value our ability to express differing opinions. That is the American way. The violence in the U.S. Congress yesterday was antithetical to everything we believe in and hold dear.

The U.S. Constitution calls for the peaceful transition of power as a bedrock of our democracy. That must be allowed to proceed without further threats of violence or unrest. It is time to take a deep breath and move forward on a better path together. As patriotic Americans, we are confident that we will.
