About Tim Swain

I am the founder of Swain LLC, a boutique law firm in Boston, Massachusetts, committed to providing sophisticated, experienced, representation. I am a skilled litigator and seasoned investigator.

I provide legal counsel on a wide array of civil matters in federal and state court and before regulatory agencies. I work with individuals, small businesses and larger companies, often partnering with in-house counsel or other attorneys.

Sophisticated Experienced. Personable Service.

At  Swain LLC, I provide a low-key, un-law-firm-like environment. I provide legal services to businesses and individuals with a focus on the overall health and long-term success of their endeavors.

Drawing on my experience working with and learning from some of the most respected lawyers in the business, I offer white-shoe service at reasonable rates.

I spent several years as an attorney in the Litigation Department at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in New York and I served on the eDiscovery Committee and led the firm’s pro bono Guardianship Project and Holocaust Reparations Project.

A Business Litigation And Regulatory Practice

My litigation practice focuses on complex business disputes, including breach of contract, fraud, interests in real and intellectual property, and securities law, among others. I practice actively in trial and appellate courts in the federal and state court systems of Massachusetts.

I also maintain an extensive regulatory practice, a substantial portion of which involves representing and advising clients in the beverage alcohol and cannabis industries. I have significant experience:

  • Conducting complicated internal investigations for clients seeking to identify and remedy regulatory compliance concerns
  • Designing and implementing organizational changes and best practices
  • Defending against regulatory enforcement actions

I also represent clients before the Federal Election Commission.

What To Expect When You Reach Out

Speaking with a lawyer is not at the top of anyone’s bucket list. We call lawyers with our worst problems. You have been sued. A competitor stole your trade secrets. A regulatory investigation is threatening your business license. These are not easy things to discuss.

I understand. When we speak, I will take the time to hear about you and your business, the reason for your call, and any immediate concerns you may have in order to determine if I am the right attorney for the job. This is a mutual decision.

It is imperative that you feel comfortable interacting with your lawyer, and I do not pressure anyone to hire me. If you or I do not think I am the best person to represent you, I am happy to recommend a lawyer who may be a better fit.
