About the Blog

  • Pierce Atwood is pleased to present this class action blog with a focus on decisions of the state and federal courts within the boundaries of the First Circuit. With decades of national class action experience and offices in every First Circuit state, our goal is to serve as a primary resource for companies that face class litigation in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, as well as to provide timely information about significant class action developments, strategies and trends on a national level.


  • This is a site offering non-comprehensive commentary, and seeking to prompt a dialogue about issues relating to class action defense within the First Circuit. It is not an attempt to provide legal advice.

    Comments are moderated but are not confidential.

    This blog may be construed as an advertisement, but should not be construed as legal advice or a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances, nor does it create attorney-client privilege.
