Our Growing Boston Presence

A lot of exciting things are happening at Verrill.

Our Boston office opened in 2004

Originally located at One Boston Place, we recently moved our office to One Federal Street to better accommodate our growing Boston team.

38 attorneys practice from our Boston office

We are listed among both the Boston Business Journal's and Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly's "100 Largest Law Firms in Massachusetts."

Some of the firm’s newest Boston attorneys have shared:

“Since joining Verrill, I have been amazed by how collaborative the firm is… It is clear to me, and to the clients that I serve, that Verrill embodies the value of teamwork.”

“I came to Verrill because I was excited by the opportunity to do challenging, high-quality work for industry leading clients with colleagues who genuinely enjoy both their work and collaborating with and supporting each other.”

“I joined Verrill because I was impressed with the firm’s growing commitment to Boston and expansion of its presence in IP and IP litigation that some of the larger firms are either ceding or not able to compete in.”
