Our clients rely on a different kind of attorney. For almost 150 years, our clients have benefited from the trusted judgment of attorneys who understand and anticipate a client's sophisticated and oftentimes complex legal needs, team with one another, and partner with their clients.

A 360-Degree Perspective

Our ability to anticipate is a result of each attorney's intimate, integrated view of the client's world. We see each issue as a seamless part of a client’s total needs, a view comprising the client's financial, business, personal as well as legal interests.

It's a view fostered by direct, one-on-one access and sustained by outstanding client service and strong, reliable, long-term relationships... trusting relationships that often span years, and sometimes, generations. It’s a perspective that lets our attorneys spot issues quickly, often before issues become problems, minimizing a client’s unforeseen risks and consequences.


The size and location of our firm speaks volumes about Hemenway & Barnes's focus. While we serve clients worldwide, our roots are in New England; we are committed to the families, institutions and prosperity of the community where Hemenway & Barnes was founded.

When we have grown, it has been to accommodate our clients alone. We are not, and never intend to be, the biggest. Instead, we strive to be the very best in the areas of the law in which we practice.
