About Goulston & Storrs PC

Founded in 1900, Goulston & Storrs is an AmLaw 200 firm with a reputation for being one of the best places to work in the Boston region and beyond, whether you are a junior associate or a senior partner.

A Summer Associate Favorite

Goulston & Storrs has a record of pleasing its employees, having been hailed as one of the best places to work by publications such as the American Lawyer, the Washington Business Journal, and the Boston Business Journal. Described as a firm with an "old-fashioned management" style by the ABA Journal and having "traditional values" by the American Lawyer, Goulston & Storrs has distinguished itself as a firm with a relatively low employee turnover rate.

Pro Bono Pros

The firm has a pro bono resume of historical proportions-partner Herbert Ehrmann served as (the ultimately unsuccessful) junior defense counsel for Italian immigrants and anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti, who were executed in 1927 after a politicized and highly controversial trial. More recently, Goulston & Storrs has served as general counsel for OxFam America and was the co-founding firm of the Massachusetts Legal Clinic for the Homeless. In 1989, Goulston & Storrs became the second firm ever to receive the American Bar Association's national pro bono award, an honor usually reserved for individual attorneys. Goulston & Storrs' commitment to pro bono continues today. In 2014, the firm represented pro bono client Roca, Inc. which had a central role as a partner in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts landmark Day for Success initiative, the largest of its kind in the U.S.

Managing Massachusetts' Business

Although Goulston & Storrs has an international reach through its Beijing office, the firm has a strong hold on regional business-its attorneys have counseled clients like the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, did construction project finance work for Boston's Central Artery/tunnel project, and represented the New England Patriots through the construction of Gillette Stadium. Goulston & Storrs attorneys have gone on to serve on the board of the Massachusetts Port Authority and represent the state's court system.
