Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP is a full-service midsize firm
boasting top-flight legal talent as well as efficiency and
cost-savings for clients. Among the firm's clients are major global
corporations, banks and other public and private businesses,
innovative emerging growth companies, entrepreneurs and capital
sources, as well as medical and educational institutions,
foundations and families.
Nutter has deep roots in the Boston community. In 1879, a young
Louis D. Brandeis founded the firm with fellow Harvard alumni
Samuel D. Warren. Although Brandeis would later leave private
practice for the judiciary-he was appointed to the United States
Supreme Court-the firm has maintained its prestigious reputation
through multiple name changes.
Even as a midsize firm, Nutter boasts a strong bench that would
be the envy of many BigLaw firms. The firm's hardworking attorneys
gained recognition from U.S. News & World Report
earning the firm a "Best Law Firm" ranking for 13 practice areas
nationally and 17 in Boston, ranging from environmental law
litigation to antitrust to intellectual property. Additionally, an
impressive 52 Nutter attorneys were selected for the 2015
"Massachusetts Super Lawyers"and "Rising Stars"lists, and 32
attorneys were selected as "The Best Lawyers in America" for 2016.
But don't let their success fool you into thinking that these
lawyers are merely worker drones, Nutter attorneys love their jobs.
The firm ranks first nationally in Vault's inaugural Best Midsize
Firms to Work For and has ranked first nationally in The
American Lawyer's midlevel associate satisfaction survey six
of the previous seven years, including in 2014.
Current associates and partners at Nutter have big shoes to fill
when it comes to pro bono. Founder Louis D. Brandeis is often
credited with developing the pro bono tradition in American Legal
practice during the turn of the 20th century. The firm is a
challenge participant in the Pro Bono Institute's Law Firm Pro Bono
Project, meaning it must certify each year that it spent three
percent of the firm's paying client billable hours on pro bono
work. The firm also works with a variety of non-profits providing
legal services to battered women, those seeking unemployment
compensation, artists and veterans, among other deserving
