For nearly 150 years, since the founding of our legacy firm Peabody & Brown in Boston, Nixon Peabody attorneys have been deeply engaged in the business life of Boston and the New England region. Today, Nixon Peabody’s Boston office is the firm’s largest, staffed by more than 175 attorneys and legal professionals, including the firm’s managing partner. It continues to provide clients with a strong New England base, as well as a gateway to the firm’s global resources. With a state-of-the-art conference and meeting center, the office provides instant access to top legal minds in a wide range of areas by leveraging the experience of approximately 700 colleagues across Nixon Peabody’s offices.
Nixon Peabody’s Boston office includes attorneys from every major practice, with principal areas of focus in Real Estate, Litigation, Corporate, Securities, Intellectual Property, Private Equity, Tax Credit Finance & Syndication, Affordable Housing, and Private Clients. We provide practical solutions to the complex legal challenges faced by our clients.
Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the Boston business and political climate. We are especially proud of our strong ties to the city through our work on projects that make Boston a great place to work, live, and visit. For example, Nixon Peabody represented the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum in a complex closing involving an $18 million loan and $3 million grant needed for its renovation. We also represented Hostelling International USA and its regional affiliate, Hostelling International-New England, on a $44 million renovation project that will create a state-of-the-art facility in Boston that is expected to be the first LEED®-certified youth hostel in the United States.
Our Boston attorneys and staff are deeply committed to supporting their community through pro bono work, volunteer efforts, and involvement in local organizations. The Boston office actively supports, among others, Boston Cares, the United Way, Boston Municipal Research Bureau, Boston Public Library Foundation, Courageous Sailing Center, Greater Boston Legal Services, Huntington Theatre Company, MSPCA, New England Aquarium, Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation, The Commonwealth Institute, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Family Services of Greater Boston, New England Council, MassINC, Women’s Bar Association, and more.
