Our Areas of Practice
A&K litigators represent their clients’ interests in state and federal trial and appellate courts, before arbitration panels, in mediation, and in administrative hearings. With our concentration in highly regulated areas, our lawyers frequently handle matters involving airports, environmental law, health care, insurance, real estate, municipalities, and public agencies. Our skilled trial teams are committed to understanding our clients’ particular needs and delivering efficient and meaningful results.
Our lawyers come from diverse backgrounds across the private and public sectors. Their collective experience provides the broad perspective, access to resourceful networks, deep subject matter knowledge, and creative thinking that is critical to success at trial. Our trial attorneys have the proven skills to handle any civil litigation matter including, among others, matters of governance and regulatory compliance, commercial and contractual disputes, unfair and deceptive business practices, and permitting disputes, in addition to managing parallel criminal and civil proceedings.
A&K’s reputation for success in critical litigation results in our attorneys being chosen to handle complex, novel, and precedent-setting cases. For example, our team won one of the leading recent MEPA cases, establishing a new law concerning the required scope of an environmental review of a biological research facility to safeguard the safety of an adjacent environmental justice community. And in the public sector, we successfully represented the Massachusetts Gaming Commission in litigation, brought by the cities of Boston and Revere and Mohegan Sun, challenging the award of the casino license in southeastern Massachusetts to Wynn Resorts. Whether in the private or public sector, our trial lawyers provide efficient, effective, and creative approaches to resolving some of the most complex legal and business matters. And in cases of any magnitude, our opponents and the courts recognize our tenacity, integrity, and compelling advocacy.
