About Foley Hoag LLP

To appreciate the Foley Hoag difference, consider our history. In 1943, the legal profession was an exclusionary culture enforced by a rigid unwritten social code. Yet two individuals, Henry Foley and Garrett Hoag, defied the status quo, daring to establish a different kind of law firm based on a radically new criterion: individual merit. This commitment, which endures to this day, has yielded a high-performing firm with a long record of success across a wide range of industries. Blending the best of tradition and innovation, our lawyers ? past and present, in the United States and around the world ? practice at the highest levels of the profession, delivering the highest level of client service. Since our beginning, we have evolved and adapted along with the law. Our clients value our ability to anticipate trends both in the law and in their specific industries. As we've evolved, however, we have preserved the best of traditional lawyering. In a world driven by technology, we still pick up the phone and seek the face-to-face interactions needed to cultivate solid client relationships. This is just one aspect of our professionally serious yet easy-going culture, which has inspired unusual loyalty in both our clients and our lawyers. Since the firm was founded, we have established deep roots in the Boston-area entrepreneurial community, focusing considerable resources on cultivating the next generation of technology companies. We work closely with these organizations throughout their entire lifecycle, from inception through financing, growth and maturity. We host hundreds of events every year for entrepreneurs and investors, who often find new business partners before the night is over. Our distinguished alumni include global business leaders, general counsel of leading companies, a U.S. senator, a U.S. ambassador, accomplished state policy leaders, university presidents, and the first African-American partner at a Boston law firm. We have invested in our community locally and globally through endeavors such as the Foley Hoag Foundation. Established in 1980 with an initial focus on improving race relations among youth in Greater Boston, the Foundation's mission is now broadened to support programs addressing inequality in its various forms, including but not limited to racial, ethnic or gender disparities. Our pro bono program, independently ranked in the country's top one percent, focuses on a wide range of matters around social justice, education, nonprofit support, intellectual property rights and economic fairness.

Office Description:

Foley Hoag was founded in Boston in 1943, and the city has remained the firm's headquarters and largest office for more than 70 years. Located in Boston's Seaport District, Foley Hoag has consistently maintained a commitment to innovation and tradition to deliver the highest levels of client service. The Boston office is the base for many of the practices upon which Foley Hoag built its reputation, such as litigation, intellectual property, labor, environmental law and business. Attorneys in the Boston office are also focused on supporting the leading industries in the area, including technology, life sciences, energy, cleantech and education. The firm has deep roots in New England's entrepreneurial community and helps to cultivate the next generation of technology companies by advising them on financing, growth and maturity. As the firm has progressed into new practice areas over the years, it has expanded beyond Boston to provide services to clients in Washington, D.C., Paris, and most recently, New York. Through that expansion, Foley Hoag has never forgotten its commitment to Boston. The firm contributes to improving race relations through the Foley Hoag Foundation. Foley Hoag's pro bono program is ranked in the country's top one percent, focusing on a wide range of matters around social justice, education, nonprofit support, intellectual property rights and economic fairness.
