Working with the public sector comes naturally to Hemenway & Barnes. After all, one of our firm's founders, John Davis Long, was Governor of Massachusetts, a member of the United States Congress and Secretary of the Navy under President McKinley. Since Long's time, our lawyers have been leaders in the civic, business and philanthropic world of Boston and New England.
Birthrights aside, we're a Boston law firm that understands the lasting importance of government to our 21st century clients. It's not an accident that our offices are practically in the shadow of the statehouse dome.
Clients seek our help because we know the people and the workings of government. The members of our Business Law Group have cover-to-cover knowledge of the regulations for our clients' industries and how best to comply. Our attorneys also routinely work with government agencies at all levels, including federal, state and local.
Regardless of the agency, industry or business need, our aim is the same. We strive to structure our client's operations and ventures in ways that anticipate and avoid problems.
