Firm Profile

Sherin and Lodgen LLP

Firm Details

Leading corporations throughout New England and beyond rely on Sherin and Lodgen LLP to handle sophisticated transactions, difficult litigation and complex regulatory issues in real estate, litigation, business law, and employment. 

Our size and client focus set us apart. With over 40 attorneys, we're large enough to handle big, complicated problems while small enough to provide responsive, senior-level attention to every matter. Clients receive sophisticated analysis and effective, efficient and focused representation. We provide this high level of service by developing an in-depth understanding of our clients'; business issues, concerns and goals, as well as emerging industry trends.

By design, Sherin and Lodgen is not a general practice firm offering all things to all clients. Instead, we have chosen to focus on what we do best, attracting talented, experienced attorneys in these practice areas.
