On November 17, Davis Malm shareholder William F. Griffin, Jr. reprised his role as a discussion leader for the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) program Practicing with Professionalism. This one-day program enabled participants to build a foundation in professionalism that will serve them throughout their careers. Mr. Griffin and three other panelists led a Q&A discussion during the Real Estate/Business Law lunchtime program. This informal format served as a mentoring opportunity for the new lawyers in attendance and encouraged them to network with prominent, experienced attorneys in their desired practice areas.
Practicing with Professionalism is coordinated by the Supreme Judicial Court’s Standing Advisory Committee on Professionalism and is required for all lawyers newly-admitted to the Massachusetts bar on or after September 1, 2013.
Bill Griffin practices in the Business Law and Real Estate areas. He primarily represents privately owned and publicly held businesses in a variety of business and real estate transactions. He has also acted as bond counsel in many tax-exempt bond financings. Mr. Griffin has extensive experience with sophisticated business, financial, and real estate transactions; and has briefed and argued numerous appellate cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, the Massachusetts Appeals Court and the Maine Supreme Court. He has conducted or been a panelist at various MCLE seminars, and has authored a variety of publications on topics including tax-exempt bonds, corporate organization, and negotiation and tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions. Recently, Mr. Griffin has authored a lawyer’s handbook, with the working title “A Practical Guide to Massachusetts Business Organizations,” to be published by MCLE early next year.
