Working with a diverse cross-section of clients ranging from Fortune 50 giants to shareholders in small family-owned businesses, our seasoned and savvy trial lawyers take the time to understand each client’s business and goals, then develop a comprehensive case strategy and tactical approach designed to achieve the desired outcome.  Our experience has shown that preparing each case from day one as if it will go to trial is the best way to reach a favorable pre-trial resolution.  Each business dispute has its own unique set of characteristics and circumstances, and we understand and use them to achieve favorable results. 

Whether at the negotiating table, in alternative dispute resolution forums, or in the courtroom, Todd & Weld lawyers are fearless, effective advocates for our clients. We regularly appear in federal and state trial and appellate courts in Massachusetts and other jurisdictions across the country.  We have achieved multi-million-dollar verdicts, successfully defended large corporations facing bet-the-company litigation, and skillfully argued important, meaningful issues in federal and state appellate courts.

Known as thought leaders throughout the legal and business communities, members of our Complex Business Litigation practice are quoted in the media, frequently speak at bar and industry events, and author articles on litigation topics for legal and business publications.  The practice and several of our attorneys are regularly honored for excellence by Best Lawyers in America, Benchmark Litigation, and Super Lawyers.
