Robyn S. Maguire is a member of the firm's Product Liability practice group. She focuses her practice on complex civil disputes, with an emphasis on drug and medical device litigation and eminent domain litigation. Robyn currently represents a manufacturer of prosthetic knee and hip implants and a pharmaceutical manufacturer in lawsuits concerning contraceptive patches, DES, pediatric painkillers and other pharmaceuticals. She previously represented a group of Cape Cod landowners whose property was taken by eminent domain in connection with the Sagamore Flyover Highway Project. Robyn was an important part of the trial team for three of these cases in 2009-2010, all of which resulted in significant verdicts in favor of the landowners. She was also instrumental in drafting the appellate brief for one such case, which was recently upheld by the Massachusetts Appeals Court.
In addition to her general case load, Robyn is actively involved in pro bono, as well as civic and charitable initiatives. In the past, she has represented indigent clients in landlord-tenant disputes with the Boston Housing Authority, as well as immigrants seeking asylum in the United States. Robyn also represented a student who was wrongfully denied in-state tuition by Bunker Hill Community College based on the College's erroneous interpretation of the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education's tuition classification rules. Robyn is an associate member of the Town of Hingham Zoning Board of Appeals for 2012-2013.
Prior to joining Nutter, Robyn was a judicial intern for the late Honorable Reginald C. Lindsay of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
