Brad Pinta has a well-earned reputation for knowing how to quickly and effectively assess the most critical issues involved in a legal matter. With almost forty years of business and trial experience, he brings to the table a substantive and successful track record, having represented many small- and medium-sized companies and having litigated literally hundreds of civil cases. These perspectives prove invaluable in solving a client’s business disputes and problems. As a result of his experience, he is frequently solicited by existing and prospective clients with the opening comment, “Let me run this by you,” as they seek a preliminary direction for a particular legal situation.
Since passing the Bar in 1981, he is admitted to practice before all state and federal courts in Massachusetts. Brad received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Boston College in 1977, and his Juris Doctor degree from Suffolk University Law School in 1980. His family biography was featured in the Suffolk University Law School Alumni magazine, as Brad, his late father, brother, and eldest son have all attended the law school.
In the early days of his legal career, Brad primarily focused his practice in commercial litigation disputes with an emphasis on the representation of a multitude of automobile dealerships in all aspects of their business endeavors. Thereafter, he became the managing partner of a Boston-based defense firm where he expanded his focus to professional malpractice, while still maintaining his specialization in representing his existing automotive clients. During this time period, Brad honed his skills as a trial lawyer, successfully handling a variety of difficult civil cases.
In 1999, desiring a more hands-on approach to his case load and a utilization of his business acumen, he relocated his offices to the South Shore. Brad currently focuses his practice areas in civil litigation, business transactions, employment law, and commercial and residential real estate matters for a multitude of closely-held business owners. His firm’s of counsel lawyers, Mark J. Shaffer and Robert M. Nathan, are specialists in their respective areas of real estate and personal injury law and have worked with Brad in these capacities for over fifteen years.
In 2014, Brad was selected to a Group Leader position of the Hingham chapter of ProVisors, which is an elite, bicoastal networking group of senior level trusted advisors. The chapter has developed into one of the most successful groups in the Boston area, boasting nearly forty members of established, diverse professionals. The relationships that Brad has developed with the members of these groups has served to complement his wide range of experience and to bring into a case, as needed, another professional who has an expertise in the issue being presented on any particular file. Also, as a part of the ProVisors network, Brad annually travels to Los Angeles for the company’s advanced Group Leader and networking training conference, which has also enabled him to expand his networking contacts to a nationwide level.
Brad is also a member of My Pinnacle Network, a business to business networking organization. He is the past president of several successful BNI (Business Networking International) chapters, a similarly-focused networking franchise. As a result of his involvement in these organizations and in the community, Brad has become a frequent guest speaker at local seminars, teaching attendees how to appropriately terminate employees, within the bounds of Massachusetts Employment Law, as well as other legal issues that are important to small business owners. His extensive legal experience has prompted other local organizations and businesses to engage him to provide informal lectures and seminars on a wide variety of business-related topics.
In his spare time, depending on the season, you will find Brad, along with Kim, either on the slopes at New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain Ski Resort or on the beaches of Rhode Island, as he is an avid and long-time skier and surfer.
