Their training is traditional, yet their approach is different. Ellen Lubell and Doris Tennant have decades of experience working in law and dispute resolution. They draw from excellent training at Boston-area law firms and institutions to offer their clients the responsiveness and efficiency of a small firm. Diligent in advising clients and handling transactions, whether for individuals, nonprofit organizations, or businesses, the firm’s attorneys approach their work with a unique combination of expertise, responsiveness, and common sense.

Relationships are key, of course.  Clients need support in preserving valuable relationships, ending negative ones, and negotiating successful transactions. At Tennant Lubell, it’s not a matter of trying to win extra points if a problem can be resolved by collaborating or making mutual concessions. Whether representing individuals facing life challenges or organizations seeking to optimize use of their resources, our work always begins by listening carefully to clients.  Ellen and Doris make use of creative approaches and do not let their egos get in the way.
