Ashcroft Law Firm Joins the BBA as a Sponsor Firm

Press Release

The Boston Bar Association is pleased to welcome Ashcroft Law Firm as a sponsor firm, joining the BBA’s community of more than 13,000 members drawn from law firms, in-house legal departments, government agencies, law schools, and nonprofit organizations.

“We are thrilled to officially become a sponsor firm of the Boston Bar Association and further our engagement with the local legal community,” Michael J. Sullivan, Boston Office Managing Partner, said in a statement. “Our firm and its attorneys have deep roots in Greater Boston, and we look forward to joining the BBA in our shared commitment to serving the place we call home.”

Ashcroft was founded by former United States Attorney General John D. Ashcroft in 2009.  The firm has offices in Boston, Austin, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C., and provides legal services to domestic and international clients worldwide.  In Boston, the firm is led by Michael J. Sullivan, a former U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, District Attorney in Plymouth County, and State Representative. Members of the firm’s Boston office also include a former Chief Legal Counsel for the Governor of Massachusetts, a former Chief of the Criminal Bureau of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, a former International War Crimes Prosecutor, and a former federal anti-corruption prosecutor in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section. 

As a result of its attorneys’ extensive experience in domestic and international government enforcement matters, the firm specializes in assisting clients with government investigations, white collar criminal defense, and internal investigations.  Attorneys at the firm regularly represent clients in matters involving the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, the Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance, and other federal and state enforcement bodies.  The firm also has a robust business litigation practice and regularly appears in state and federal trial and appellate courts both in Massachusetts and around the country.  Additionally, the firm has niche practices in election law, campaign finance, and representing whistleblowers of corporate fraud.

Ashcroft’s Boston attorneys are proud to participate in and support a variety of community charitable organizations, as well as bar and industry associations.  The firm’s attorneys have longstanding relationships with New Heights Charter School, Old Colony YMCA, Emerson Hospital, Harlem Lacrosse, the Tewaaraton Foundation, and the USA Triathlon Paratriathlon Committee.

Attorneys from Ashcroft’s Boston office are active participants in BBA Sections and educational programming. Partner Kim West currently serves as a member of the BBA International Law Section Steering Committee and recently led a panel discussion for new lawyers exploring a career in international law. Partner Simon Cataldo is a new member of the BBA White-Collar Crime Section Steering Committee.
