She will be an excellent GC and we are fortunate to have her.”
At Burns & Levinson since the beginning of her career, Martin joined the firm in 2006 after graduating from law school. She became a partner in 2017 and was named co-chair of the Business Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group in 2019. She is a strong advocate with deep experience as a business and legal counselor, in civic litigation and dispute resolution, and as a creative problem-solver.
“I have very big shoes to fill but am honored to have been asked to serve in this important firm role,” said Andrea Martin. “I am excited about this new chapter in my career and the opportunity to be a part of guiding the firm’s future. There are so many different challenges that law firms are facing today, from cybersecurity issues to the ethics of using artificial intelligence, and I look forward to helping our attorneys handle whatever is on the horizon.”
