Nutter has a distinguished pedigree, being the firm founded by Louis D. Brandeis, who later was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and Samuel D. Warren. The two opened their practice in 1879 and the firm was soon successful, arguing cases before the Supreme Court, handling international patent filings and representing some of the major industries that were burgeoning in New England. The founding partners’ rich legacy continues to inspire and set an example for the firm. Today Nutter upholds the same standard of focused dedication, innovation and unwavering commitment that they set over a century ago.
