About Our Team
The lawyers in our Boston office provide advice on a variety of complex transactional, litigation, and regulatory matters. Our transactional lawyers have global experience in all aspects of private equity and asset management, including fund formation, M&A, early- and late-stage private equity investments, leveraged buyouts and recapitalizations, management buyouts, and search funds.
Our regulatory and litigation lawyers represent global, national, and regional brokerage firms, advisers, funds, and other companies with a focus on securities litigation, governmental and regulatory examinations and investigations, and enforcement proceedings by the SEC, FINRA, state securities regulators, and FERC, among others. We also have deep experience in white collar criminal defense and complex civil litigation. Our lawyers draw upon their prior service in government positions, as well as with regulatory agencies, to advocate successfully for our clients.
Such advocacy and successful dealmaking on behalf of our clients has earned our team recognition in numerous industry publications, including Chambers Global, Chambers USA, Who’s Who Legal, and The Legal 500 US.
Many of our lawyers serve in leadership roles across the firm and with key legal organizations in Boston. In addition, we are deeply committed to investing in the city’s broader community through pro bono and public service. Our lawyers and staff regularly participate in local volunteer opportunities and charitable events, as well as initiatives that promote the firm’s global message of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
