My diverse legal and business background sets me apart in my approach to each case. I have been in my clients’ shoes and I appreciate the myriad considerations at play during litigation. It can be daunting, so I assure my clients that we will get through this together. Diving into the intricacies of each scenario really makes me tick: the law stays the same, but it’s the particularities of each case, client, and fact pattern that make or break the matter.
Marisa Roman is a multi-disciplinary litigator with a strong business background in McGlinchey’s Commercial Litigation practice group. Her practice includes a wide variety of commercial litigation matters, ranging from commercial and contract disputes to bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, products liability, lender liability, insurance defense, lawyers’ professional liability, and construction litigation. Marisa also has experience in litigation matters involving the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and related consumer protection state laws. Representing clients across the U.S., she routinely handles matters in federal and state court in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Marisa has extensive experience in handling client matters from the initial filing of the complaint through trial.
Marisa’s diverse experience affords her an integrative approach to handling her clients’ matters. She knows there are many more considerations on their minds than simply what is at stake in a given case. Rather than having tunnel vision on what clients “should” be doing, she works closely with clients to deliver the best solution in each instance. Previously, as in-house counsel and a management consultant, Marisa has managed everything from transactional and purchase and sale work to leases, employment matters, and data privacy. While in law school, she completed a judicial internship in the United States Bankruptcy Court of the District of Massachusetts with the Hon. Joan N. Feeney.
Marisa prides herself on developing positive, productive relationships with opposing counsel. She knows that judges take note and appreciate when counsel is reasonable and engaged, and she counts many former adversaries as career-term colleagues.
