The annual award recognizes forty professionals under the age of 40 who are on the rise and who are making a mark in their respective industries and throughout Massachusetts.
Alec is a Member in the firm’s Litigation Section. He has significant experience advising directors, officers, members, managers, and shareholders of closely-held businesses regarding their fiduciary duties, corporate governance, and indemnification rights and responsibilities. Alec also has experience representing primary and excess insurers with respect to coverage disputes arising under directors and officers, representations and warranties, professional liability, and general liability policies.
Alec is well-known in the Boston-area for his pro bono work, which focuses primarily on representing survivors of sex trafficking and domestic violence and raising awareness of legal issues impacting survivors of human trafficking. He is the founder and co-chair of the Boston Bar Association’s committee on human trafficking. His work on behalf of sex trafficking survivors includes assisting survivors to vacate prostitution-related convictions, dismissing and sealing prostitution-related charges, obtaining asylum and lawful permanent resident status, and cooperating with law enforcement. Most recently, Alec co-authored legislation to help streamline the procedure for Massachusetts sex trafficking survivors to obtain post-conviction relief, which went into effect in July 2018.
