Litigation

Overview

Clients entrust the trial advocates in our Litigation Group to handle everything from routine disputes to complex, high-stakes and “bet the company” matters. They rely on us not just for our skill and experience, but our emphasis on responsive service and practical advice based on each client’s business or individual objectives, as well as the applicable law.

The depth and expertise of our Litigation Group is evident from the attorneys that comprise the practice. Our trial advocates include esteemed Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers and other national organizations, adjunct professors and lecturers at prominent Boston area law schools, many advocates 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 trial lawyers are also nationally recognized as top-rated practitioners by our peers, as demonstrated by the fact that numerous high-profile lawyers, AmLaw 100 law firms and general counsel at law firms of all sizes have sought our counsel and advocacy when confronted with thorny legal problems of their own. We also handle a significant number of cases referred to us by lawyers from 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 insight to plan and execute a winning strategy from the outset of a case.

In recent years, interviewees of Chambers USA have described our Litigation group as "a strong group with extensive trial skills" which is "dedicated to client service” and 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.
