Boston, MA - March 21, 2012
Boston based law firm Burns & Levinson LLP has proudly launched a new blog, “The In-House Advisor,” published by two of its partners, Shepard Davidson and Renee Inomata. Drawing from many years of practice in business litigation and management-side employment, respectively, Mr. Davidson and Ms. Inomata designed the blog to provide practical commentary on a variety of legal issues that many business leaders and decision-makers regularly face. The blog (www.in-houseadvisor.com) will also periodically feature guest posts written by well-respected in-house counsel to provide “in the trenches” viewpoint.
“We are extremely excited to embark on this new endeavor,” said Davidson and Inomata. “We look forward to sharing with in-house counsel, as well as high-level executives, insightful and useful perspectives on issues that often go unnoticed – until it’s too late – or can be overwhelming due to ever-changing laws.”
Shepard Davidson is Co-Chair of the Business Litigation Department of Burns & Levinson. He concentrates his practice in the areas of complex business tort actions, contract claims, real estate actions, shareholder disputes and employment claims. He has extensive experience in all phases of civil litigation, in both state and federal courts, as well as mediation and arbitration. He represents individuals, small businesses and multi-national companies in a wide variety of industries and capacities.
Renee Inomata is Chair of the Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits practice at Burns & Levinson. A former litigator, her practice now focuses on advising management on employment matters, including non-competition and employment agreements, performance management and discipline, wage and hour and other workplace issues, and representing executives in their entrances and exits from companies. She also handles various intellectual property matters, including trademark and trade secret protections and Internet, e-commerce and licensing agreements.
