THORNTON LAW FIRM LLP

S

ometimes bringing about change means demanding it. What really gets the attention of industry regulators and businesses is a precedent-setting court ruling with a big price tag. Nobody knows that better than Michael P. Thornton, co-founder and managing partner of Thornton Law Firm, LLP. “There’s been a lot of financial fraud committed by very large banks in the last 20 years in this country,” he says. “Since we brought the first case in 2007 in California, the foreign exchange business has changed completely. It will never be the same—because of litigation, not regulation.” Thornton says forcing an industry to be held accountable is the only way to redress the harm done.

WORKPLACE POISONS

Children with severe, life-altering birth defects can’t be given the normal lives they lost, nor can their families. But making sure their parents have the resources to provide for their special needs is a good start. “If we can make it more expensive to poison children

than not to poison them, businesses are going to change their behavior,” Thornton says. The next step is addressing preventable causes. The permanent disabilities of the children Thornton represents are the direct result of their parents’ workplace exposure to toxic substances. Whether it’s hazardous solvents in semiconductor manufacturing or pesticides used in agriculture, whole families suffer the consequences. “Can you imagine having a child with spina bifida or severe cognitive disorders and how difficult it is to raise that child in an atmosphere of well-being?” Thornton asks. “The worry that you have about what’s going to happen when you die—if you don’t have the resources to leave to them for their care after you’re gone, you’ll have to leave them to the mercy of society. And our society isn’t so merciful.”

DEMANDING GOOD BEHAVIOR

While litigation against big agriculture is “at the front end,” Thornton already anticipates big changes. The

current use and application of chemicals in the food supply won’t continue. “I predict that in five years, when we go to the market, we’re going to pay five cents more per pint for strawberries or other produce. That’s because we’re going to largely stop farm workers and the people who live adjacent to the farms from being poisoned by pesticides and herbicides in the fields,” Thornton says. Dozens of multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements earned by Thornton Law and their partners illustrate how powerful their brand of advocacy can be. While grateful too for the awards and accolades recognizing their effort to defend their clients’ safety and health, the firm’s focus is always on results for their clients. “We appreciate getting awards for our work, but the real satisfaction is knowing we’ve made life a little easier for our clients dealing with the aftermath of corporate wrongdoing, and knowing that our work can prevent others from ever being in that position again,” says Thornton.

In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions—metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

About Best Lawyers

For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have been compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists. Best Lawyers' peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world, and our presence has grown substantially in the international legal community. In the U.S. alone, Best Lawyers lists reach more than 17 million readers through newspapers and regional magazines. The 22nd edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2016) includes 55,000 attorneys in 140 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 6.7 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

Harvard Law School to Digitize Massive Collection of U.S. Case Law, Provide Unprecedented Access

► Through an initiative dubbed “Free the Law,” Harvard Law School will

digitize its entire collection of U.S. case law and make it available to search for free online, providing an unprecedented level of access to anyone with an internet connection. “Libraries were founded as an engine for the democratization of knowledge,” Jonathan Zittrain, Harvard Law School professor and vice dean for library and information resources, told a reporter for Harvard Law Today. “The digitization of Harvard Law School’s collection of U.S. case law is a tremendous step forward in making legal information open and easily accessible to the public.” The law school’s comprehensive U.S. case law collection is second only in size to the collection housed at the U.S. Library of Congress, and considered to be one of the foremost collections of legal materials in the world. Approximately 40,000 law books will be digitized, containing 40 million pages of decisions from U.S. federal courts and all 50 states. Many decisions date back to the founding of each legal jurisdiction in the U.S. and some date from before the U.S. Constitution was written. The full collection is projected to be available online by mid-2017.

Bernstein Shur: Emily Gray Rice (legal malpractice law – defendants, 2005) left private practice to assume her new office as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Hampshire. She was nominated by President EMILY GRAY RICE Obama last fall and confirmed by the Senate in December. Eaton Peabody: P. Andrew Hamilton (land use and zoning law; litigation – land use and zoning, 2007) was the recipient of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce’s Norbert X. Dowd Award in recognition of his community service efforts. John W. Dineen: John W. Dineen (litigation – First Amendment, 2007) is part of a team of volunteer ACLU attorneys who are suing the City of Providence on behalf of 62-year-old street performer Manuel Pambo, who has been playing his alto sax in public places across Rhode Island’s capital since the 1990s. Pambo has been repeatedly ordered by city police to stop, and was once was arrested and held in jail overnight for illegally performing for money after an officer allegedly slipped $5 into his saxophone case. There is no city ordinance in Providence regulating public music performance, and there is little legal clarity about busking for money beyond a single letter from the city Board of Licenses that bans soliciting—but not accepting— donations. Pambo’s attorneys argue in part that the alleged threats from police to arrest Pambo violate his right to free speech. Lichten & Liss-Riordan: Shannon LissRiordan (employment law – individuals, 2008) won a $12.25 million out-of-court settlement for Lyft drivers from the app-based ridehailing company, as well as new protections for the drivers against being fired. The drivers remain classified as independent contractors under the settlement terms rather than as employees. Uber, Lyft’s more successful competitor, is facing a similar suit from its drivers, who are represented by Liss-Riordan, to be argued in California in June. Locke Lord: Michele A. Whitham (employment law – management, 2016) joined the firm from Foley Hoag as partner in the Boston office and member of the labor and employment and cybersecurity practice groups.

& Meyer: Robert M. Higgins (medical ► Lubin malpractice law – plaintiffs, 2008) won nearly

► ►

$30 million for a Holyoke, Massachusetts, family to help care for their daughter, who suffered serious, irreversible brain damage as a result of negligent prenatal care from her doctors, who failed to assess test results accurately while she was in utero or perform an emergency caesarean section that might have prevented the damage. The girl, now age 11, is deaf and mute, cannot walk, and must be fed with the assistance of a tube. McKee Billings: Walter McKee (bet-thecompany litigation; criminal defense: general practice; criminal defense: white-collar, 2012) is representing musician Don McClean, best known for his song “American Pie,” who has pleaded “not guilty” to domestic violence charges. McLane Middleton: Andrea L. Daly (litigation – trusts and estates, 2015) was named managing partner of the firm’s Portsmouth, New Hampshire, office. Nutter McClennen & Fish: Michael F. Burke (real estate law, 2013) co-led a team that helped real estate firm Related Beal with a range of legal issues related to gaining approval for and beginning construction on its new $230 million development in Boston’s North Station area. The mixed-use development, which began construction February 4, will include affordable belowmarket residential housing, a 220-room hotel, ground-level retail space, and offstreet parking. Pierce Atwood: John W. Gulliver (energy law, 1991), a partner in the firm’s energy practice group, led a team from the firm that assisted NTE Ohio, an affiliate of NTE Energy, in its $645 million financing deal JOHN W. GULLIVER for a natural gas-fired electricity project in Butler County, Ohio. According to the energy company, its new plant will be “one of the region’s cleanest and most efficient sources of energy,” generating 475 megawatts of electricity to power about 400,000 homes. Andrea Cianchette Maker (government relations practice, 2013) is one of four leaders of a new non-profit, private sector coalition called Focus Maine that aims to expand Maine’s agriculture, aquaculture, and biopharmaceutical industries and to create at

least 10,000 new jobs by 2025. Maine has the oldest population of any state in the country, and one of Focus Maine’s goals is to attract younger workers from out-of-state to join these budding local industries. Pullman & Comley: James T. Shearin (commercial litigation; litigation – antitrust; litigation – banking and finance; litigation – intellectual property; litigation – securities, 2006) contributed an article, “State Faces Continued Crisis in Legal Aid Funding,” to The Connecticut Law Tribune. Robinson & Cole has formed a new sustainability group that cuts across legal specializations and focuses on assisting business clients with the legal side of developing environmentally sustainable projects and practices. Members include: Kenneth C. Baldwin (energy law, 2008), Michael F. Maglio (banking and finance law; commercial finance law; equipment finance law; securitization and structured finance law, 2007), Robert S. Melvin (environmental law; litigation – environmental, 2010), Joey Lee Miranda (environmental law, 2013), and Martin A. Onorato (construction law; litigation – construction, 2013) in the Hartford office and Brian W. Blaesser (real estate law, 2010) and Kathleen M. Porter (information technology law, 2009) in Boston. Todd & Weld: Howard M. Cooper (civil rights law; commercial litigation; First Amendment law, 2006) represented Massachusetts State Senator Brian A. Joyce, who was successfully cleared of charges that he abused his office to obtain free dry cleaning services from one of his constituents after an investigation by the state Ethics Commission and the Office of Campaign and Political Finance.

defective products; drugs and medical devices; premises liability; explosions; medical malpractice; and motor vehicle, aviation, and mass transit incidents arising from negligence or corporate misconduct. We represent our clients with energy, creativity, and integrity, and treat them with the utmost respect and concern. For over 30 years, we have helped our clients in cases such as a $63 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson and McNeilPPC, Inc., involving a young girl who suffered life-altering injuries as a result of taking Children’s Motrin® to treat a mild fever, and the judgment was affirmed by the Supreme Judicial Court in Reckis v. Johnson & Johnson, 471 Mass. 272 (2015). The firm has also succeeded in cases such as a hazing death at MIT, the wrongful death of Milena Del Valle in the “Big Dig” tunnel collapse, and many others, while helping society through settlements that have created a safer environment for college students, increased access to defibrillators in public settings, and many other public improvements.

2016 SURVEY RESULTS

JEFFREY S. STERN ARBITRATION MEDIATION

MANN & MITCHELL Robert B. Mann

Jeff Stern joined The Mediation Group in January 2015 following a distinguished career of over 40 years as a trial lawyer with one of Boston’s premier litigation firms, Sugarman, Rogers, Barshak & Cohen, P.C. (SRBC), where he tried more than 50 jury cases to verdict, including product liability, medical malpractice, professional liability, insurance coverage disputes, a wide variety of business disputes, and probate matters. Jeff integrated an active ADR practice into his professional life at SRBC, mediating more than 500 cases and arbitrating over 50. Jeff’s ADR practice at TMG has featured the same breadth as his litigation work, with a particular emphasis on all types of personal injury cases and business matters, but also including employment, coverage issues (often embedded in tort cases), construction, and probate. Having tried medical malpractice cases for both plaintiffs and physicians, he brings a unique skill set to the arbitration of medical malpractice disputes. Jeff was selected as a fellow of the American College of Civil Trial Mediators (ACCTM) and designated as its Distinguished Fellow in 2012. Jeff has been a Massachusetts “Super Lawyer” in ADR and listed in The Best Lawyers in America in ADR for over 10 years.

What is one of your most memorable recent cases? During the past year, our firm and co-counsel have resolved a number of cases, two of which are particularly significant: One was representing a child born with very serious birth defects caused by her mother’s exposure to toxic substances while working in a semi-conductor chip manufacturing facility in Arizona. The case was favorably resolved before trial, allowing the needs of this person with severe disabilities to be met for the remainder of her life. Another major case which we resolved with co-counsel was a class action against a major custodial bank for improper pricing of foreign exchange trades. This case returned over $500 million to the affected clients and has forever changed how this entire segment of the banking industry operates. Both cases were the first of their kind. They were also reflective of the fact that much of our litigation is conducted nationally, outside of Massachusetts.

“I have known Karen [McAndrew] for over 30 years and have tried complex jury and bench cases with her. Karen is a trial lawyer’s trial lawyer. Brilliant, tenacious, and equally comfortable and effective before federal circuit judges and Vermont juries. Simply stated, she is the best.”

Could you explain what toxic tort litigation is, and what drew you to it as one of your areas of expertise? Toxic tort litigation is the representation of an individual or institution that has suffered harm because of exposure to toxic substances. I particularly like this practice area because it always presents new challenges for us as lawyers. As we are always at the forefront of developing areas of torts, our lawyers must build interdisciplinary strengths in areas beyond the law—including science, medicine, statistics, epidemiology, accounting, securities regulation, and more. It should also be said that a successful tort litigator benefits from having extraordinarily dedicated partners, associates, co-counsel, and staff. No one achieves great success on their own in this business.

What do you find most challenging about the work you do? The institutions that we sue typically are defended by determined lawyers. Just because you are right doesn’t mean you are going to win. At the same time, we have the opportunity to provide real help to victims of injustice. We’re approaching our fortieth year of practice and have been extraordinarily fortunate to do what we love and love what we do. What sort of charitable work do you do? We support a number of local charities every Christmas, including Heading Home, a Boston non-profit working to end homelessness in Greater Boston. Our employees become highly involved in supporting these efforts and they’re a part of our tradition now. www.bestlawyers.com

COVER STORY

PHOTO BY TRACY POWELL

E

very year for the past two decades, Lubin & Meyer has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, and 2016 was no different—for the fifth year in a row, five of the firm’s partners were named in the publication: Robert M. Higgins, Andrew C Meyer Jr, Adam R. Satin, Krysia J. Syska, and William J. Thompson. These listings, along with the firm’s 2016 Tier 1 Boston ranking for plaintiffs’ medical malpractice law and personal injury litigation by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms,” represent a continued vote of confidence by the legal community, as they are based entirely on peer review. “It’s gratifying to know that we have earned such a high level of respect among other leading lawyers in this field, but any recognition we receive as individuals is really a credit to our effectiveness as a group,” says Meyer, a founding partner and Best Lawyers’ 2011 Boston “Lawyer of the Year” for medical malpractice. “More than anything, our unparalleled track record is the result of the consummate professionalism, integrity, and abilities of our team of lawyers and support staff, and of the tenacity that we as a firm bring to every case that we take on.” Year after year, Lubin & Meyer’s dedication has resulted in recoveries that figure in the top 10 largest verdicts and settlements in Massachusetts. The number of verdicts and settlements the firm has achieved during the past decade far exceed the results of any other firm in the state. “We have a wide variety of people in our office who offer a range of expertise,” says Meyer of the firm’s team, which in addition to experienced lawyers, nurses, and physicians includes administrative personnel, computer programmers, an economist, and a quality control manager. “By contributing their skills, they have allowed us to achieve the great success that we’ve become known for.” Indeed, the firm’s track record so far in 2016 is proving similar to previous years, in that the firm has already secured what will undoubtedly be one of the year’s top verdicts—a $29.8 million award by a Hampden Superior Court jury for an 11-year-old girl who suffered a devastating brain injury at birth. “This was a case where negligent care resulted in permanent injuries, and unfortunately these types of medical mistakes are endemic to our health care system,” Meyer says. “Medical errors are one of the leading causes of death in this country, and as a firm, it is not only our mission to achieve maximum compensation for our clients, but also to ensure patient safety for the general public.” When Meyer formed Lubin & Meyer in the mid-1970s, the firm was one of the first to take a stand against health care providers on behalf of consumers. From then on, it has continued to fight hard to improve systems within hospitals and doctors’ offices. In just one example, lawsuits brought by Lubin & Meyer led The Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team to expose a practice at Massachusetts General Hospital where some orthopedic surgeons would double-book operating rooms to run concurrent surgeries involving two patients in two operating rooms at the same time. As a result, in early 2016, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine overwhelmingly approved new rules to address the issue of

“Patients deserve a health care system where safety is a priority and errors are not just swept under the rug.” surgeons performing simultaneous surgeries. “Patients deserve a health care system where safety is a priority and errors are not just swept under the rug,” Meyer says. “By exposing the lack of quality treatment in these institutions, we have done our part to help create a safer environment for patients everywhere.” While Lubin & Meyer’s leadership on patient safety issues has earned the firm nationwide recognition, it has no intention of resting on its laurels. Meyer notes that the firm is constantly refining its trial techniques through the use of mock trials, computer simulations, and other persuasive communication methods. “Trying cases is an art for us, and we are always honing our skills because the stakes in these matters are so high,” he says. “No amount of financial recovery can ever compensate an individual or family for a catastrophic injury or the loss of a loved one, but we strive to bring some solace and comfort to those who seek our representation, and in doing so, hopefully change the system for the better.”
