Pierce Atwood’s success is built on three core strengths: attracting and retaining superb legal talent, achieving superior client satisfaction, and delivering exceptional value. We understand that clients want creative and timely legal solutions from attorneys who understand their businesses, and we understand that clients want responsiveness and efficiency in the delivery of legal services. Our goal is to deliver all of these.

From discussing an initial scope of work to developing a mutually beneficial fee arrangement, Pierce Atwood prides itself on tailoring solutions to the particular needs of a client. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to innovative pricing, and the best ideas are the result of a candid dialogue between Pierce Atwood and its clients.

Pierce Atwood is also committed to reaching out to the underserved members of the many communities in which we live and practice. That is why the firm expects each of its attorneys to provide 50 hours of pro bono service every year, and why so many of them continually meet and exceed that expectation.
