Prince Lobel Tye Joins Boston Bar as Sponsor Firm

Prince Lobel Tye, a full-service firm that just celebrated its 25th anniversary, has joined the Boston Bar Association (BBA) as a sponsor firm. Prince Lobel provides a wide range of legal services to Fortune 1000 companies, closely held businesses, and high-net-worth individuals. The firm focuses on offering clients unwavering service and value, in a culture that places a priority on inclusiveness and community outreach. Outside the office, many Prince Lobel attorneys are active participants in various BBA committees, programs, and panels.

"Our lawyers have been heavily involved at the BBA for a long time, so we look forward to our partnership as a sponsor firm," said Craig Tateronis, managing partner of Prince Lobel. "We place great value on pro bono work, community engagement, and diversity in the workplace, as does the BBA, and we are committed to pursuing related projects with them."

Prince Lobel supports a variety of firm initiatives in areas such as education, the arts, illness awareness, and families and children. Individually, attorneys at Prince Lobel invest significant time and energy in neighborhood efforts. To further enhance their philanthropic activities, the firm created the Prince Lobel Foundation, which also helps facilitate the coordination and management of their various outreach programs. These programs assist victims of domestic abuse, those suffering from addictions, illness, or injury, and others. Beyond their firm-wide charitable work, Prince Lobel attorneys offer valuable pro bono legal assistance to a number of different organizations and constituents, including a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing, AIDS patients, and elderly citizens of the Commonwealth.

Prince Lobel also has an active diversity committee, chaired by co-founder Walter B. Prince. The committee's mission is to ensure that the firm remains committed to its stated goals of openness and inclusion. One diversity program, Prince Lobel's women's initiative WOMEN@PRINCE, focuses on building relationships both within and outside the firm. Geared toward promoting the talents and abilities of female attorneys, the group supports professional development through career advice, educational and mentoring programs, and creating networking opportunities.

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.
