Orr & Reno business lawyers know that there’s more to business than “the deal.” Our clients, whether large or small, benefit from our in-depth knowledge of everyday business decisions and operations.

That’s why we constantly try to learn about our clients’ businesses. As a part of their decision making team, we can help them craft strategies to achieve objectives, rather than telling them the reasons why those objectives cannot be met.

Our clients are generally located within New England, but we recognize that business is global. We provide legal counsel to national companies, as well as companies from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, and Italy.
