Our Boston office is the centerpiece of our regional footprint in New England. From the heart of the city’s financial district, we provide a wide array of legal services to clients in Greater Boston and New England as well as clients doing business nationally and internationally.

When you engage one of our Boston attorneys you have the full resources of the firm at your fingertips. As a firm, we have an unwavering commitment to top quality service and strong client relationships. We believe in working hard, in partnering with our clients and in understanding their businesses. Our Boston attorneys are among the best in the nation, many of whom are rated AV® Preeminent™ 5.0 out of 5.0 by Martindale-Hubbell and are recognized as Best Lawyers in their fields by Best Lawyers.
In a span of three years, our Boston office went from not being listed on the Boston Business Journal's "Areas Largest Law Firms" list to coming in at #94 in 2012, #76 in 2013 and #71 in 2014. We may not be in the top 10 but that's not our objective. We’re making solid progress as a high quality, responsive, nimble, and entrepreneurial firm – our recent lateral hires attest to that.
