Welcome to Hemenway & Barnes where, for over a century, we have helped families, family owned businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals on a range of legal, wealth management and personal issues.
From wealth management and charitable giving to business succession planning and dispute resolution, we provide advice custom-tailored to the needs of our clients. This is why so many of our client relationships have lasted across generations and why clients who are new to us feel that they have “come home” immediately when they cross the threshold.
Service as trustee is part of the heritage of the firm and underpins most of our work. Indeed, the personal relationship and trust that comes with the role of trustee informs the level of trust that all of our clients place in us. Whether serving as trustee or in a role as advisor to families, businesses and individuals, our counsel, judgment and guidance set us apart.
When a client has an issue, we are often their “first call.” On matters both large and small, we provide judgment and help clients weigh options and make informed decisions. Our professionals are seasoned, well regarded in their fields of expertise and provide advice that is both sophisticated and practical. We team with one another and partner with our clients, a combination that fosters collaboration and creates strong, lasting relationships. We are creative, sensible, entrepreneurial. At its best, good lawyering involves providing wise counsel and advice, and that is what we do for our clients. Above all, we understand and listen and that is why clients come to us, whether to complete a transaction, create a plan, resolve a dispute or serve as counsel over generations.
We invite you to peruse the website and contact us directly to discuss your legal and fiduciary needs. Our approach is unique and we look forward to welcoming you to the H&B family.
