Employment

 
 

Davis Malm's employment attorneys are among the most experienced, effective, and client centered in New England. Since 2010, our employment group has been selected by Chambers USA for inclusion in its directory of recommended law firms, and one of our members is recognized as a "leader in their field." Most of our team's shareholders are AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest bestowed rating, and have been recognized as Massachusetts "Super Lawyers." Our employment associates are well trained and bring extraordinary competence and depth to our work.

We have earned an outstanding reputation among our clients and our peers at other law firms as well as with mediators, arbitrators, and court personnel. We have extensive experience working with the many federal and state administrative agencies that regulate our clients. Our employment attorneys write and lecture widely in the complex field of employment law. One member has been selected by the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education entity for its Employment Curriculum Advisory Committee. Moreover, unlike many of our peers, we represent employers as well as executives and employees. We believe – and our record of success has borne out our belief – that intimately knowing the entire "lay of the land" gives us an edge over our peers.
