Hill and Barlow

Last updated on 18 May 2017

Hill & Barlow was a law firm in Boston, Massachusetts that was dissolved in 2002. Founded in 1895, the firm had been one of the city's oldest and most elite firms,[1] and was also the 12th largest in Boston at the time of its dissolution, employing 145 lawyers. The firm was founded by Arthur Hill, known for defending the anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti. Hill & Barlow was dissolved when approximately one third of the firm, mostly the real estate group, left, eventually joining Piper Rudnick (now DLA Piper) in 2003.[2] (A group representing authors and movie producers were the first to leave for Fish & Richardson.) Remaining attorneys reported feeling "blindsided" by the unexpected upheaval, but those departing felt that the planned restructuring was coming too late.[2]

Notable former employees include:
