Burns & Levinson LLP Announces Andover Office and Grows Private Client Group

June 22, 2011

   

Burns & Levinson LLP announces the expansion of its Massachusetts presence with an office in Andover. The firm will take space in the 300 Brickstone Square complex to help service clients in the Merrimack Valley, and surrounding North Shore areas.

Burns & Levinson has offices in Boston, Providence, New York and Montreal, along with Hingham, Waltham and now Andover in Massachusetts; its clients are able to meet with the firm’s attorneys conveniently and locally. Its attorneys are admitted to practice throughout New England and in many other states, which expands its ability to assist clients.

“Our firm has historically understood our clients’ needs and how we can best help them address those needs. Our clients want sophisticated and responsive legal service; to that experience we now add additional convenience by extending our regional presence,” said David Rosenblatt, Managing Partner of Burns & Levinson.

In addition, Nicholas Forgione joins the firm as a Partner in its Private Client Group. His experience in the trusts and estates area blends well with our Private Client Group practice which consists of over 25 attorneys and other related professionals who work with clients in the New England and East Coast regions. The Private Client Group assists clients in estate planning and administration, probate and trust litigation, tax, divorce, family law, and business-succession planning. Forgione will split his time between Boston and Andover.

“The synergies between my work and Burns & Levinson’s Trusts & Estates Practice made it a natural fit for me to join the firm,” said Nicholas Forgione. “Top notch client service, along with an interest in increasing visibility north of Boston, gives me the opportunity to continue serving clients in the Merrimack Valley and North Shore as well as offer them the depth of services of a full service firm.”

Nicholas Forgione is a member of Burns & Levinson’s Trusts & Estates and Probate & Trust Litigation Groups. He advises clients of all asset and income levels with their estate planning and probate needs, including estate and trust administration, elder law, Medicaid planning, and estate and fiduciary income taxation. Forgione also works with small and mid-size businesses in their corporate and succession planning needs. He is admitted to practice in Massachusetts and the U.S. Tax Court and is a member of the American and Massachusetts Bar Associations, Director and past President of the Merrimack Valley Estate Planning Council and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Prior to joining Burns & Levinson, Forgione was a Partner at the law firm Devine Millimet. He received a Master of Laws in Taxation from Boston University in 1988, a J.D. from Franklin Pierce Law Center in 1984, and a B.S. from Northeastern University in 1979.
