Legal guidance for how, where and why we work today



Our clients rely on our practical guidance to navigate the complex web of workplace issues. That many of our clients are long-term or repeat clients is a testament to the consistently effective services we provide. We are here for our clients whenever they may need us, and are with our clients until their issues are resolved.  Whether our client is a serial entrepreneur moving from one company to another, a company that is making tough decisions about layoffs, or a start-up wondering how to protect its innovative technology, the employment group at Burns & Levinson takes care to learn about their clients and tailors solutions to meet their specific needs. We don’t tell our clients what they can’t do; we excel in working with our clients to find how we can reach their goals. As a mid-size firm, we not only offer direct relationships with seasoned members of our team, but also apply the depth of our resources to staff matters for efficiency and effectiveness. We also avail ourselves of the multi-state resources of the Law Firm Alliance when our clients require local practice in other jurisdictions.
