Litigation

Professional Liability

Overview

The Goulston & Storrs Professional Liability Group is without question the “go to” group for elite law firms in Boston that have chosen us to be their advocates.  The Group includes two Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL), two members of the Massachusetts Bar Association Ethics Committee, a member of the Boston Bar Association Ethics Committee, a member of the American Bar Association’s Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility, and a former member of the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers.

Our professional liability lawyers have also lectured at seminars on professional liability sponsored by the ACTL, the ABA Standing Committee on Lawyers Professional Liability, the Boston Bar Association, the Ethics Officers Association and the American Corporate Counsel Association.

We are 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 and professional problems of their own. We also handle 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 how a verdict or settlement affects the client’s brand and business.
