The Goulston & Storrs’ Commercial Litigation Group has extensive experience representing businesses and individuals in all phases of disputes, including civil trials and appeals. Because of the depth and diversity of the group’s experience, we are capable of successfully resolving virtually any commercial matter, including complex, high-stakes matters, “bet the company” cases and class actions.
The depth and expertise of our Commercial Litigation Group is evident from the trial attorneys who practice here. Our advocates include esteemed Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, adjunct professors and lecturers at prominent Boston area law schools, a former federal prosecutor, many attorneys who hold or have held leadership positions in local and national bar associations, and numerous others who have served as clerks for judges in state and federal courts.
Our advocates are also nationally recognized as top-rated practitioners by our peers, as demonstrated by the fact that numerous AmLaw 100 and AmLaw 200 firms, and general counsel at law firms of all sizes have hired us when confronted with thorny legal problems of their own. We also handle many cases referred to us by other firms who want the very best representation for their clients in litigation. With a strong record of success as both trial and appellate lawyers, we have the ability to plan and execute a winning strategy from the outset of a case.
In recent years, interviewees of Chambers USA have described our litigators as "a strong group with extensive trial skills" which is "dedicated to client service,” and one which has a “deep bench in its Boston office.”
Clients especially love that our trial advocates are also keenly aware of the business context in which litigation decisions must be made, making special efforts to understand the unique business and industry background of each client as it pertains to any litigation assignment. As a result of this approach, our trial lawyers are always thinking of arguments and resolutions that are consistent with the client’s larger business goals beyond the case at hand.
