The Nutter of today has grown through several generations of lawyers from an illustrious beginning in Boston in 1879. Two young Harvard Law School graduates -- Samuel D. Warren, scion of one of the city’s elite families, and Louis D. Brandeis, who would later become one of the most famous lawyers in modern history – co-founded the firm a few years after they graduated first and second in their class. The firm, originally called Warren & Brandeis, quickly became very successful, and a strong foundation was laid which has endured for over 130 years and counting of continuous practice.
We celebrate the legacy and example our founder Louis D. Brandeis, who practiced law here for over 35 years before beginning a long and distinguished term on the Supreme Court of the United States in 1916. Brandeis was a man of great accomplishment and conviction, deeply dedicated to his clients and recognized as a brilliant advocate. A pioneer of privacy rights and the pro bono tradition, he left a legacy of service and commitment that inspires lawyers to this day. We are proud of our DNA as a firm and appreciate that it provides us a strong platform on which to serve as legal counsel to our clients today.
