Mutual Funds Law

Goodwin is best in class with respect to fund representation (both private and public funds), and our asset management business as a whole. The attorneys at Goodwin are our most trusted counsel on virtually every matter. We appreciate their incredible expertise and rely on them greatly.

As a long-term Goodwin client, I continue to be impressed with not only the firm's legal expertise, but also with the very good business advice and judgement. The level of industry knowledge is unsurpassed and the level of responsiveness is tremendous. Definitely my go-to firm.

Employment Law - Management

This is my fifth year working with Goodwin Employment Law team in Boston. They consistently provide expert and thoughtful counsel on complex and sensitive employment law matters that result in minimizing risk, while providing for the best possible outcome for the individual involved. They know our business, and our culture and advise accordingly.

Litigation - Intellectual Property

Goodwin is a powerhouse in every respect. They have top-class technical expertise and legal understanding that is second to none. This, combined with their willingness and ability to strategize for the client, provides the clients an immense boost. They are more strategic partners to their clients than just a law firm representing a client.

The team at Goodwin has been a partner to our business for over 25 years. They bring the right talent to the table, are responsive, creative and genuinely care about our business. I have high regards and respect for every member of the Goodwin team that I have worked with over the past 25 years. They are willing to go above and beyond to get the job done.

My company and I have worked with Goodwin for several years. They are extremely knowledgeable and responsive (top-to-bottom). I would recommend to others, including those with meaningful ex-US activities.
