  • Named to the New Hampshire Union Leader’s 40 Under Forty program

Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

Ned knows his way around a non-competition agreement. He’s written extensively on the subject, and keeps himself thoroughly familiar with the rapidly changing rules of enforceability. That’s great news for his clients, who benefit from his extensive employment litigation experience—not only when he’s defending them in the courtroom, but also when he’s drafting airtight protections for proprietary information.

In addition, Ned has a wealth of litigation experience involving intellectual property, corporate espionage, and trade secrets. He’s represented software and medical device companies, scientists, inventors, and even a vodka brand pursuing infringement litigation on their intellectual property. 

Ned is also committed to providing pro bono services to clients who are unable to afford to pay for his time. Right now he is working on the post-conviction appeal of a man sentenced to death in the New Hampshire state courts.

But that’s not all. Ned is also very experienced in:

  • Litigation in New Hampshire probate courts
  • Breach of fiduciary duty representations on behalf of trust beneficiaries

In his former life, Ned was:

  • Clerk for Judge Thomas M. Golden of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
  • Member of a large Philadelphia law firm

When Ned isn’t working, he is…

Serving on the New Hampshire Board of Bar Examiners and chairing the Business Litigation Section of the New Hampshire Bar Association.  When he’s not at the office he enjoys hanging out with his family in Concord where they live, playing blues guitar, and listening to stand-up comedy.
