Our History in Rhode Island

When the Providence law firm Little Bulman Medeiros & Whitney PC joined Pierce Atwood, the combined firms provided clients with stronger and deeper commercial and construction litigation practices. Former Little Bulman attorneys are widely recognized throughout southeastern New England as highly skilled lawyers in construction and business disputes, and known for their expertise in complex litigation matters.

Because of our continued growth in Providence, Rhode Island, in November 2017, Pierce Atwood moved to a new, larger office in a downtown high-rise in the financial district. Our ongoing, strategic growth in areas of great need and interest to our clients has helped Pierce Atwood further establish itself as a strong, regional, multiservice law firm with 150 attorneys in the Northeast.

With strong ties to the Rhode Island legal community, attorneys in the Providence office teach a law school course on federal court litigation practice, and they are actively involved in several local bar organizations. Attorneys and staff are committed to public service, volunteering their time and expertise to many charitable and nonprofit organizations, including:

  • Defense Research Institute
  • Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island
  • Maritime Law Association
  • Metcalf Institute at the Graduate School of Oceanography at URI
  • Multiple Sclerosis Society
  • Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island
  • Providence Animal Rescue League
  • Rhode Island Community Food Bank
  • Rhode Island Federal Bar Association
  • Rhode Island Public Expenditure Council
  • Rhode Island Reserve Officers Association
  • Save the Bay
  • Tides Family Services

Since 2002, Providence office partner-in-charge Brooks Magratten and his family have been involved in an annual 50-mile, three-day walk to help raise money to fight Multiple Sclerosis, raising more than $300,000 to date.
