Boston is a hub of diverse industries shaping our future, and we’re right in the thick of it. While our clients include multinational manufacturers and leaders in financial services, our sweet spot is the middle market. We help world class universities protect and monetize technology and health care providers and biotechs solve disease-busting puzzles.
We’ve aligned our talent and services to help large and small companies advance their innovations. And in some cases we’ve located our attorneys in their space, such as at the Cambridge Innovation Center.
Our Boston office houses formidable teams, such as our intellectual property, corporate and litigation talent whose creativity and energy matches the tenacity of our clients. Our connectedness with each other, with industry leaders and with government allows us to address any issue companies face whether new to the market or in the market for years.
For clients literally building Boston’s future, our real estate teams are unmatched for breadth of experience financing and constructing projects. In addition to our national leadership in affordable housing, we’re developing communities that will serve tomorrow’s seniors, students, families and businesses.
As Massachusetts grows a workforce fit for tomorrow, we are helping clients develop HR approaches and benefits programs that will attract and retain talent. And as those executives and business leaders plan their own financial futures, we lead them forward with tax, retirement and estate planning services.
We are as deeply committed to Boston’s people as we are to their businesses. Through pro bono work, volunteer efforts and memberships on boards we have deep roots in the community. Our support of the Greater Boston Legal Services, the Boston Foundation and other nonprofit organizations assures legal representation for everyone. We support charitable, cultural and educational programs that assure Boston’s present and future needs are met.
