Sulloway & Hollis traces its roots to the partnership of two Dartmouth College graduates – Anson Marshall and Henry Rolfe – in Concord, New Hampshire in 1852. Over the next 160 years, Sulloway helped to form and represented many New Hampshire banks, railroads, public utilities, and other businesses.
Our attorneys have consistently handled some of the most preeminent cases of the day, including key cases on medical negligence, railroad regulation, corporate taxation, personal injury, insurance, and the battle over New Hampshire’s only nuclear power plant. Sulloway lawyers also have long served as trusted and able advisers on corporate, trusts and estates, banking, and real estate matters. We have always been in the forefront of developing creative legal solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
Sulloway’s ties to the heath care profession are long and deep. We are proud to have represented the New Hampshire Medical Society for many years and have developed a premier reputation in the field of medical malpractice defense and physician and hospital advocacy. That tradition of excellence continues today. As the complexity of the health care industry evolves, Sulloway works to help its physician and hospital clients manage ever-increasing corporate and regulatory requirements.
Over the years, Sulloway has become known as one of the leading law firms in New Hampshire with its lawyers participating in all aspects of law, government, and community service. Sulloway attorneys have gone on to serve on the New Hampshire Supreme and Superior courts as well as in the U.S. Senate and House, the state legislature and in city government. While still serving their clients, Sulloway attorneys have served as Governor’s counsel and on many other governmental boards and agencies. In addition, our lawyers have undertaken leadership roles in support of the legal profession by service on many organizations, including the Supreme Court’s Board of Bar Examiners and Professional Conduct Committee, the New Hampshire Bar Association and the Campaign for Legal Services. Sulloway lawyers have also worked to support various charitable and non-profit organizations serving New Hampshire.
On a regional and national level, Sulloway attorneys have been active in a wide range of groups, including the Defense Research Institute, the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, the American Defense Trial Lawyers Association and the Tri-State Defense Lawyers Association. Their legal excellence has been recognized by organizations such as the American College of Trial Lawyers, “Super Lawyers” and “Best Lawyers in America.”
Sulloway has long provided services to clients in Northern New England, particularly in the areas of labor and employment and medical malpractice defense. Sulloway has now opened offices in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and added experienced lawyers in those states to its team which will allow us to enhance our service to clients in a wide variety of matters, including commercial litigation, insurance coverage and defense of insureds under various types of insurance policies.
