Shepherd Law Group


Jay Shepherd ran Shepherd Law Group from 1998 to 2011. The Boston employment-litigation firm made headlines around the world after it ditched timesheets and hourly billing in 2006. The firm defended and advised employers from billion-dollar multinationals to local mom-and-pop companies.

In 2011, Jay hung up his lawyer spurs (no, that’s not a real thing) and closed Shepherd Law Group. If you need to reach Jay now, head on over here. If you need employment-law help and you’re either (a) an employer or (b) dealing with a noncompete or trade-secret issue, you’re in luck: Jay made arrangements with Beck Reed Riden, one of the top litigation boutiques in Boston, to take over most of Shepherd Law Group’s clients. Tell them Jay sent you.
