Boston

Looking forward to celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018, Morse Barnes-Brown Pendleton is a well-established business and technology law firm of 35 experienced lawyers providing sophisticated legal services and creative, practical advice to businesses of all sizes, from technology startups to Fortune 1000 companies.

We believe that experience counts. Our partners each have 10-30+ years’ experience, and all previously practiced at major Boston law firms or as in-house counsel of major technology companies. They are recognized as thought leaders in their practice areas and frequently write, lecture and teach. We also have an unusually high partner-associate ratio, creating an average experience level far exceeding that of most leading law firms. Additionally, the in-house experience of many of our attorneys adds a particularly practical perspective and a keen understanding of the importance of agreements that facilitate rather than hinder business.

From the outset, we’ve been dedicated to developing real partnerships with our clients, addressing each client’s specific challenges and delivering effective results tailored to each client’s needs, often by maximizing new workplace technologies. While we have long enjoyed a reputation for special competency in technology ventures, we represent clients of all sizes and industries in all stages of the business lifecycle.
