Pierce & Mandell Joins Boston Bar Association as Sponsor Firm

Pierce & Mandell, P.C., a boutique firm focusing on health care, business litigation, intellectual property and insurance defense law, has joined the Boston Bar Association as a Sponsor Firm. With 13 attorneys, Pierce & Mandell counts among its clients private companies large and small, professional practices, non-profit organizations and individuals. The firm, now located at 11 Beacon Street, was established in 1995 by Boston College Law School alums Robert Pierce and William Mandell.

"The BBA is the preeminent organization for Boston lawyers, with a long history of commitment to education and public service," said founding partner William Mandell, a past chair of the Boston Bar Association Solo and Small Firm Section and a current member of the Health Law Section Steering Committee. "We share those values and look forward to taking an active role in the Association as a sponsoring firm."

Nearly half of the firm's attorneys serve on municipal or non-profit boards, and Pierce & Mandell supports the Eddie Mandell Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards annual college scholarships to deserving Boston Public School graduates. Pierce & Mandell attorneys also are active in educating the legal community and public by writing scholarly articles for journals and other publications, as well as issuing regular blogs on the firm’s website on legal issues of interest for its clients.

The Boston Bar Association traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the nation’s second president. Its mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion.
