I help my clients – large and small businesses, executives, professionals, and private individuals – to avoid and resolve disputes.
I am a trial lawyer and founding partner of Twohig Caplan LLP, a Massachusetts law firm focusing on civil litigation and dispute resolution and avoidance. Large and small businesses and individuals come to us for our combination of big firm expertise and small firm service and efficiency.
Highlights of my 20-year career as a trial lawyer with downtown Boston law firms and general counsel of a start-up business include:
• Successfully represent a number of companies in bet-the company litigations.
• Win $2 Million arbitration award for clients facing contentious disputes from failed corporate merger.
• Assist corporate and individual clients to recover tens of millions of dollars in insurance proceeds under virtually all types of insurance policies.
• Help businesses and individuals with contract preparation and negotiation, employment issues, non-competition agreements, risk avoidance, and resolution of customer claims.
Martindale Hubbell rates me “A.V. Preeminent,” the top rating for lawyers who have demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism, skill and ethics. I hold a 10/10 ("Superb") rating from AVVO.
My main interest is helping people through difficult situations. Solving problems is my goal, whether through pre-litigation counseling and negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, litigation or trial.
