Jeffrey D. Knight, Esq. focuses his practice on the representation of business clients in a host of transactional and litigation matters. Attorney Knight is a trained mediator with certificate program completion from MWI, inc, a well established mediation firm in downtown Boston. He handles a wide variety of mediation matters, ranging from employment, to commercial disputes and family mediation. His clients range from private child care facilities, including private schools, to large commercial and retail entities.
Since starting the practice, Attorney Knight has had significant in-court experience, and experience in propounding cost-effective discovery as well as analyzing contracts and drafting multi-faceted agreements for businesses and individual clients.
He believes that while the firm is prepared to litigate where the need arises, one of our core strengths is the honest, measured approach we take to assess the risks and benefits of pursuing a legal claim. It is important to the law firm to give each of our clients the information they need to make an informed decision.
Prior to opening the firm, he worked for private law firms that ranged in sizes from solo practices to mid-sized law firms. He has also had the honor of working for two esteemed jurists in the Commonwealth, Justice Harry Grossman of the Land Court and the then-Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf of the U.S. District Court (D. Mass.). These experiences provided him with a unique and rich perspective which positively influences his work product day in and day out.
