About Us
Founded in 1899, we are one of Boston's oldest law firms. We believe in the traditional values of our profession - the highest standards of quality, responsiveness, and ethics - but take a modern approach to legal service delivery. Through independent thinking, creative problem-solving and smart staffing, we help clients achieve optimum results.

Today, we are a leading regional firm of over 50 attorneys with a wide reach. Our team assists clients throughout the New England states (and often across the U.S. and as far as the U.K.), with their litigation and insurance coverage needs.

With some of the most experienced and capable trial lawyers in New England, clients rely on us to handle a wide array of civil claims and lawsuits. We represent an interesting variety of industries and professionals in our work. We have particular expertise working with insurers, drug and medical device manufacturers, corporate employers, healthcare institutions, nursing homes, colleges and universities, municipalities, lawyers, real estate professionals, insurance agents and brokers, financial institutions and other businesses. Our litigators often provide litigation-avoidance advice to our clients. From pre-suit strategy to defense of civil lawsuits through trial, our team of litigators has you covered.

Peabody & Arnold has a national reputation in Directors & Officers (D&O) insurance and other forms of business insurance. For over 50 years, insurance companies have relied on us to handle major claims and coverage issues in state and federal courts throughout the United States and abroad. We provide coverage advice and monitor high-profile litigation. We represent insurers in settlement negotiations, mediations, and in the resolution of significant coverage disputes.
