Choate is in some ways similar to most highly successful law firms, but in important other ways we are distinctly different from the vast majority of other major firms. We are proud of these differences and believe they materially benefit our clients and our lawyers.
Choate has been one of the country's premier law firms for over a century. Our mission is to help important clients capitalize on their most promising opportunities, find solutions to their most pressing problems, and provide exceptional judgment, service and value. We also maintain as a core value giving back to the community which has given so much to us.
