our solutions

A successful enterprise depends on top-notch legal advice.  Expert advice is needed to reach your organization’s goals and manage its internal affairs.  We call that Boardroom advice.  Expert advice is needed to help your organization address and resolve disputes.  We call that Courtroom advice.  And expert advice is needed to help your organization anticipate, shape, and respond to government regulation.  We call that Statehouse advice.

An enterprise seeking expert help in the Boardroom, the Courtroom and the Statehouse advice has a range of choices.  Should your organization hire one or more small law firms, many of which can help only in the Boardroom, or only in the Courtroom, or only at the Statehouse?  Or should your organization hire a large, full-service law firm?  Such firms may have staffs capable of helping in the Boardroom, the Courtroom and the Statehouse, but many charge high rates to cover their substantial overhead.  And some firms are so big that it will be hard for your organization to get their attention, or for you to maneuver from one “department” to the next.

Ferriter Scobbo is different.  We are a law firm that offers the Boardroom, Courtroom and Statehouse services of a large firm, but with the flexibility and one-on-one attention of a small firm.  Ferriter Scobbo was founded 35 years ago on the principle that an attorney who has  knowledge and experience practicing law in clients Boardrooms, in the Courtroom and at the Statehouse is  able to provide superior legal service to clients efficiently and effectively  Each of our attorneys has that knowledge and experience. You get that benefit.  We provide that advice in an environment that is open and congenial.  We want our clients to let us see their big picture, so that together we can make their organizations a success.
