The FGD Difference
FGD Law is a team of legal and other professionals, many with large marquee firm backgrounds, who provide accessible, responsive and multidisciplinary services aligned with the needs of today’s innovation-driven, smart growth organizations.
We’re the firm you turn to for your legal solutions at every stage of the developmental journey as you invent, scale, grow, compete and exit.
With decades of wide-ranging industry and business experience combined with specialized advanced education, our team applies insights into the essential legal, regulatory and competitive dynamics that organizations and their leaders depend upon for confident decision-making.
FGD Law team members are accomplished authors and widely-regarded analysts whose scholarship on such case law involving product liability, indemnity and other issues has been cited by State Supreme and State Appellate judges and courts, attorneys and law professors.
FGD members have successfully prosecuted many precedent-setting cases and reported decisions for plaintiffs and defendants in industries from medical and accounting to architectural and engineering. They have also been invited to conduct guest lectures on numerous occasions at such institutions as the MIT Enterprise Forum, the MIT Startup Clinic and other MIT-based organizations.
A Collaborative, Interactive Service Model
Originally formed to offer early stage and emerging growth companies with strategic business and legal guidance, FGD Law has evolved over the years to become successful for a wide array of organizations in size and operational context throughout New England:
- Early stage or fully scaled technology innovators
- Mid-cap or middle market manufacturers
- Mature publicly-held companies
- Privately-held and family enterprises
- Dynamic, market-leading nonprofits
- Trusted advisory firms who service all of the above
Our collaborative, interactive service model often has clients feeling as if they have retained personal counsel. From this attentive approach, grounded in robust analysis, we produce practical, customized solutions that deliver to clients immediate operational enhancements.
Understanding How Your Needs Have Changed
As a specialized entrepreneurial firm, FGD Law was one of the first to recognize, and respond to, the changes in how clients prefer to engage with their legal trusted advisors.
A majority of our team members have spent time as a senior partner or associate at large marquee firms. We understand how hierarchical models can subject clients to overblown fees for work that is often rendered by junior associates within a service relationship that can be ill-equipped for rapid response and interactive problem solving.
As more clients experience challenges from globalization and the volatility that arises out of economic and political uncertainty – a complex web of issues confronts organization leaders, requiring their legal advisors to be ever more efficient, transparent and accountable.
Law firms are now expected to bring greater context to a client’s issues portfolio – whether it involves risk management, finance and accounting or business development, operations, regulatory affairs and the supply chain.
FGD Law interacts with you and your leadership teams in a manner that fosters trust, predictability and accountability. We configure our resources as a seamless extension of your own, rendering real-time solutions to your business issues as they unfold – avoiding the escalation that can disrupt your focus.
Our team thrives on cost-efficient, high-quality service to deliver exceptional value from a deep understanding of your business and its operational context.
