Founded in 1984, the Boston office serves clients in a broad array of disciplines across multiple industries.

We have one of the world’s largest and most experienced investment management legal teams in Boston. Our lawyers represent SEC-registered investment companies in all aspects of their operations including satisfying SEC registration, disclosure, and regulatory compliance obligations, and obtaining SEC no-action letters and exemptions. We also represent investment advisers and broker-dealers in discharging their registration, disclosure, and compliance responsibilities. As one of the most prominent financial services practices in the United States, we serve the needs of investment advisory firms of all sizes.

Our Boston office handles a wide variety of complex civil litigation matters, including intellectual property (IP), insurance coverage, environmental, securities, mortgage banking, construction, products liability, creditors’ rights/bankruptcy, antitrust, and other complex commercial matters. We litigate all phases of commercial disputes arising out of business combinations, asset and share purchases, corporate finance transactions, public offerings, and disclosure requirements. Our business litigation practice is a natural and seamless complement to our M&A, capital markets, and investment management/hedge fund practices.

Our Boston-based business lawyers represent a variety of mature and growth companies, both public and private, addressing a wide range of legal needs, including organization and structuring, public and private financing, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, venture capital, restructuring and bankruptcy, tax planning, joint venture arrangements, product development collaborations, and technology licensing. They also represent multinational companies, private equity funds, and domestic and foreign operating companies in complex cross-border transactional, corporate, and capital markets work in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America, and routinely represent multinational companies in international trade and custom related matters in Latin America.

Our securities and SEC enforcement lawyers are actively engaged in a variety of securities litigation and securities enforcement matters, which encompass representation of financial services firms, regulated entities, public companies, their officers and directors, and other individuals in investigations and actions brought under the securities laws by the SEC, FINRA, DOJ, state regulators, and other self-regulatory agencies.

The Boston office is actively engaged in prosecuting patents, obtaining trademark and copyright registrations, litigating patent and other IP disputes, advising on cyber law and licensing issues, and otherwise representing our clients in matters of national and international significance in IP matters. The Boston IP team has been involved in Hatch-Waxman-related patent litigation, including ANDA infringement suits and exemptions from infringement for Food and Drug Administration-related activities, and counsels clients on international patent litigation strategies. Our team also frequently represents venture capital firms in their investments in technology companies.

Our Boston employment and labor lawyers represent local, regional, and national employers and counsel them on all legal aspects of personnel management, including executive compensation and employee benefits matters. We also handle a wide range of employment disputes, including contract disputes, non-competition and misappropriation of trade secret cases, discrimination, harassment and retaliation cases, wage and hour disputes, employee misconduct matters, tort-based claims, and disputes related to data privacy breaches as well as compliance with data privacy regulations. We regularly advise companies on social media policies and related issues. Our Boston-based team frequently collaborates with employers to conduct a variety of in-house training sessions.

Rounding off the capabilities of our Boston office are highly regarded practices in real estate, restructuring and insolvency, white collar crime, tax, banking and finance, and government enforcement.
