About the Firm

Donnelly, Conroy & Gelhaar, LLP is a Boston-based law firm with a reputation for excellence in the areas of white collar criminal and government investigation defense, SEC enforcement defense, and complex business litigation. We are ardent litigators who defend individuals and companies facing high-stakes criminal or civil challenges to liberty, reputation and financial position. We take on your burdens, combining practical legal and business thinking with the right experience, relationships and judgment to fight your battles and achieve the best result in the context of your business and personal goals.

As legal strategists and former prosecutors, we understand the inner workings of the justice system. We have the intellectual depth to thoroughly examine the legal issues of a case and develop creative, innovative approaches to obtain relief, support claims and defeat the arguments of opposing parties—whether they be prosecutors or private litigants.

We are unfailingly practical as we approach your problem with a tailored plan of attack, and unique and effective legal arguments that nullify opponents.

Our team has expertise across a broad range of industries. We do not focus in one particular business area because our clients represent a diversity of technologies, geography and markets. You need smart lawyers who are technically strong when it comes to analyzing and strategizing a case, and who have significant relationships with opposing counsel, prosecutors and regulators that bolster negotiating position and ability to dissuade pursuit of a case.

We’re defined by:

  • Familiarity with handling high-stakes cases
  • Judgment to weigh the costs and benefits of a given strategy
  • Respect we’ve earned from judges, prosecutors, regulators and opposing counsel
  • Empathy, understanding and reassurance we offer every client
