Berman Tabacco

The touchstone of a successful litigation is client engagement and satisfaction. We pride ourselves on our ability to work effectively with clients—to communicate and take on as much as possible so that they don’t have to.

Daniel E. Barenbaum
Partner

I get great satisfaction knowing we’re helping the little guy. Our resources and know-how mean David can face Goliath armed with more than a slingshot.

Kathleen M. Donovan-Maher
Partner

Our work is about trust—trust we earn by acting in our clients’ interests and getting the results they demand. That’s how we built our reputation: client by client, case by case.

Nicole Lavallee
Partner

I am proud of the skilled and talented team that we’ve assembled to ensure that fiduciaries carry out their responsibilities.

Norman Berman
Partner

We’ve built our whistleblower practice around the concepts of integrity, selectivity and hard work, with a laser focus on our clients’ needs. By sticking to those core principles, we’ve gained a reputation for bringing only the most credible actions.

Bryan A. Wood
Partner

We fight the good fight every day and we do it against the nation’s best defense lawyers. If that doesn’t keep you at the top of your game, nothing will.

Joseph J. Tabacco, Jr.
Partner

In our practice, the word ‘selective’ comes up again and again. We are as selective about our case recommendations as our clients are about choosing a law firm.

Leslie R. Stern
Partner

Our work here on behalf of public and union pension funds is in many ways an extension of what I did as an elected official. We fight for the working people.
