Among our team, our lawyers have extensive experience in business and banking, employment law, litigation, commercial real estate, education law, intellectual property, criminal law, and health law. Our depth of knowledge, creative problem-solving skills, and rapport with our clients make us one of the most respected firms in the region.
Our HistoryIn 2008, Leonard Cohen, Kevin Kinne, David Valicenti, and Jeffrey Cook founded the firm with a simple objective: to attain effective results through a personalized, persistent approach that focuses on the clients’ needs and goals. We have grown significantly since then and added attorneys who are becoming leaders in their fields, recognized in the Berkshires and throughout Massachusetts, all of whom share that same goal. Our consistent achievement of our founders’ objective is why we have so many long-term clients who trust us to handle significant transactions and advise them on their most sensitive and difficult challenges.
The year 2019 marks the tenth anniversary of the founding of our firm. We are thankful to everyone who has shown us unwavering support over the past ten years. We look forward to providing top notch legal service for many years to come. You can view our Anniversary Statement here.
Our ApproachWe begin each case by listening closely to our clients, to gain a deep understanding of all angles of the matter. We know that cost is an important concern, and we work with all our clients to make sure the charges for our time are predictable, understandable, and fair. We believe in providing the highest level of service, which is why we practice only in the areas in which we have extensive experience. When you need attorneys that cross practice areas, we’ll combine forces to create a skilled team. We also work with a network of specialists in other practices, and can bring in outside support as a case requires. Because the law changes rapidly, we stay up-to-date on developments. We provide sound counseling, strategic planning, and aggressive representation. And we approach our work with a sense of humility and humor, valuing each client’s ideas and input.
Our TeamWe are proud to have a team of hard-hitting trial lawyers, effective negotiators, and savvy corporate counsel. Our attorneys have represented clients in trial and appellate courts at the state and federal levels, including in Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Florida, California, Ohio, and Texas. We have recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for our clients, and have helped them succeed in the face of the most daunting legal challenges.
