About Us

Have you heard of Burns Charest LLP?  If you haven’t, we invite you to learn more.

Burns Charest is a young firm with a dynamic and impressive pedigree.  Our founders were partners and attorneys at some of the finest commercial litigation boutiques in the nation.  In 2015, we came together to build a new, aggressive platform to pursue our clients’ interests.

We know that experience matters to clients and judges.  And we have it.  Our lawyers have actually tried a complex class action to verdict, served as co-lead counsel in multi-district litigation, secured a $106 million judgment in the first of the 2008 mortgage meltdown cases to go to trial, obtained significant settlements in royalty-owner disputes, and regularly represented individuals and businesses in complex, bet-the-company cases.

We currently serve as co-lead counsel in national antitrust and commodity class actions.  We represent numerous royalty owners in disputes against oil and gas giants.  We serve hundreds of individuals whose lives have been threatened by exposure to asbestos.  And we are helping landowners clean up decades of environmental damage.

We have a strong team.  Our lawyers are some of the most experienced and talented of their generation, and we are happy to match our credentials against others.

Our focus is on the future.  We believe firmly that our nation’s legal system was designed to protect individuals and businesses from the wrongdoing of others and to assure a level playing field.  As lawyers, we have an incredibly important role to play in making that system work for our clients.  And we will not shy away from a fight to protect their interests.

We are Burns Charest LLP.
