Our Practice

We are experienced commercial litigators.

Our experienced litigators are prepared for anything, both inside and outside the courtroom. We have an active civil practice throughout Massachusetts, in both state and federal courts, as well as before administrative agencies.

Our proven track record derives from years of experience handling all stages of complex litigation from injunction proceedings to trials and appeals.

Because of our extensive litigation experience, we regularly advise companies and organizations of all sizes in their day-to-day operations, helping them resolve conflicts creatively so they can return to productive business pursuits.

Every client has unique needs.

We are sensitive to each of our client’s unique needs and tailor our services accordingly.

In some instances, the resolution of a business dispute requires an aggressive litigation strategy. If that’s the case, we are ready to help our clients vigorously pursue their goals in the courtroom or through arbitration.

There is not a one-size-fits-all solution to resolving business disputes, so we are equally prepared to work on a negotiated resolution with the other side. This approach can help maintain amicable business relations and save the expense of protracted litigation.

We also help our clients before conflicts ever arise, partnering with them to avoid disputes and litigation altogether through careful analysis, strategy, and communication.

No matter what your needs are, our lawyers provide personalized, appropriate advice to help you achieve your goals in preventing, litigating, and resolving a dispute. We can help guide you to a resolution, keeping you informed every step of the way.

No red tape means rapid and cost-effective responses to our clients’ needs.

As a small firm, our clients enjoy direct access to our attorneys. Because we are committed to building and maintaining lasting relationships with our clients, we encourage open communications and pledge to respond to questions ASAP. We also work with our clients to establish budgets, closely manage the costs, and bring value to their businesses. We think that this approach is the best way to deliver cost-effective legal services.

Since Beck Reed Riden LLP was founded by lawyers who left large law firms to start a boutique firm, our services combine the best of both worlds. We provide our clients the benefits of attorneys who have extensive experience handling complex business disputes along with the cost-effective value of a boutique firm.
