5.0 stars 13 totalReview Hillary Hughes
I was lucky to have found Hillary to help resolve a business matter with a vaguely established partnership during the beginning stages of developing a small business. She is exceedingly thorough, sensitive, objective and does her research before advising. As we worked together I gained respect and confidence in her approach every step of the way, As a result, I gained insights and clarity in the issues I had initially grappled with that resulted in business growth.
Hillary understands and respects the unique needs of women is small business in the start up stages and beyond. I highly recommend her for corporations large or small, in transition phases, or well established complaines who want to take things to the next level. I continue to ultilize Hillary anytime I need legal advice.
I've had the pleasure of working w/ Hillary and her firm through a multitude of circumstances; I continue to be blown away by her crossfuntional expertise and direct/indirect customer focus and support! Both my clients and I are continually impressed and are pleased to refer to Hillary as a member of our "team"!
Hillary knows everything and anything. No matter how big or small the issue is, she is always there, day or night, weekends or holidays, to answer my calls, emails or texts, and always has a spot on view and opinion on the matter. I would recommend her to everyone (except my adversaries).

Too many amazing superlatives jump into my head when I think about Hillary Hughes! So instead of rambling about her utter brilliance and integrity, I will keep it simple. Hillary is the ONLY lawyer I will ever need - I trust her wholeheartedly. And the best part is she has become a true friend through our business relationship. If you have not hired Hillary and her team, you are wasting your money elsewhere.

From our first conversation, I felt she was extremely knowledgeable and would be an asset for my particular needs. I always feel confident that she has my best interests in mind. I’ve trusted her firm with my intellectual property concerns over the past 3 years. Hillary always responds to my communication promptly, even occasionally on the weekend when the need has arisen. I’ve always been confident that she will guide me towards the best decision for each situation. She’s also made excellent referrals when I’ve had a need for other areas of legal counsel. I consider Hillary a fantastic find. I’m eternally grateful for all the work that Hillary and her team have done on my behalf.

Hillary Hughes was referred to me by a colleague who knew of her legal skills, and suggested that her expertise maybe helpful in our business initiatives. Initially, during my first meeting to discuss our needs, I was impressed with her ability to grasp the concepts and complexities of our vision. She offered sound legal judgment and showed her business acumens to plan a course of action.
It was easy to see she would be tough-minded and direct in business situations and discussions...but also incredibly understanding and compassionate.
Having worked with Hillary for nearly two years, she has demonstrated outstanding strategic planning advice geared towards the success of major projects and events. She is always thinking "big" picture in our business efforts, but detail analysis is never overlooked.
I have no hesitation recommending Hillary Hughes' legal counsel...for she possesses unquestionable accountability and commitment to objectives.

I’ve known Hillary for 8 years (2001-2009) on both sides of work relationships, and I endorse her highly. She hired me to do a job in 2001 and was great client in a situation where many are often frazzled and frantic. This speaks to her poise and character. As I shifted careers and founded a non-profit, she offered pro bono legal services from SNR in June 2005. Non-profit start-ups can be chaotic and challenging as clients, and Hillary stood by us offering prompt, professional service, sometimes drilling deep into SNR’s staff resources on short notice to find the right lawyer to advise us on diverse and changing legal issues. She worked with us on several areas of law including performing arts contract, real estate, IP, admiralty. When we had a tough negotiation with a difficult vendor, she was serenity herself, always poised and calm. It is a pleasure to work with such a professional.

I was so impressed by Hillary's work when I first worked with her at Sonnenschein, I kept in touch with her over time to be sure that I could find her when I needed her. And that need arose when I took over the reins of an early stage company in the healthcare field. At my new company I reviewed the documents created by other attorneys who had served the company and I felt they did not have the thoroughness and attention to detail that were needed as I took the company to the next level. Fortunately, Hillary had joined a firm - Garvey, Schubert, Barer - who could support an early stage company such as mine. And the timing was perfect as we entered into a major negotiation for our first large scale contract. Successful negotiations are about attitude, aptitude, strategy, and execution and Hillary excels on all counts. She is a pleasure to work with - tough-minded but with a sense of humor even in the heat of battle. Even when not in negotiations, Hillary is always "on the case" and her follow up skills are remarkable. In addition to working with Hillary on this significant customer contract where we were responsible for all the documents, I have worked with Hillary on employment contracts, stock option documents, an offering memorandum, general corporate documents such as hardware sales, software licensing, evaluation agreements, NDA's, etc. so I can attest to her talents across a multitude of legal areas.

Hillary provided my company with a high level of expertise while we were going through the MA process. Our team had varied experience with the MA process ranging from little or not at all to an ex-investment banker on the management team. Hillary was able to bridge the gaps with the team and brought in resources and experts within her firm to move the process effectively forward. I found her to be highly available and responsive, providing definitive information and answers on issues that arised, which allowed us to make choice in a timely fashion.
In the event that I am fortunate enough to go through another MA opportunity, I would want Hillary to be a part of my team
