BOSTON – Mintz is pleased to announce that Associates William J. Bussiere, Jr., Natalie C. Groot, and Kevin C. Mortimer have been selected to join Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce’s 2023 Boston’s Future Leaders Program. The program which spans a little over ten months, provides promising leaders with a fully engaged leadership toolkit blending academic content, practical application, and networking. Graduates of the Future Leaders Program move on with the abilities needed to cultivate an innovative future for Boston and the region.
Launched in 2004, Boston’s Future Leaders Program provides numerous opportunities for its members, including learning from world-renowned faculty at Harvard Business School. To be selected, applicants must exemplify leadership in their company or community, be employed at a Chamber member organization, be committed to contributing to the long-term success of the region, and be dedicated to full participation in the sessions.
Mr. Bussiere focuses his practice on corporate counseling and fundamental transactions for emerging companies. He has represented public and private companies in all stages of their life cycles, including company formation, venture capital and debt financing, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets transactions, and securities law compliance. He also advises companies on governance matters, commercial contracts and equity compensation.
Ms. Groot counsels clients and litigates employment disputes on a wide variety of employment and labor matters before state and federal courts and administrative agencies. Her litigation practice includes non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation claims, and wage and hour compliance. Natalie leads workplace investigations and conducts employee trainings on a regular basis. She also advises clients on employment and labor issues, including employment and separation agreements, terminations and reductions in force, internal workplace investigations, workplace health and safety, independent contractor and employee classifications, employee handbooks, and company policies, including family and medical leaves.
Mr. Mortimer engages in an expansive array of litigation matters, including construction, government law practice, real estate, complex business litigation, and institutional class action recovery. He represents and counsels individuals and businesses, both large and small, in all stages of litigation, arbitration, mediation, negotiations, commercial disputes, and contracting. Kevin constantly strives to provide his clients with an efficient, tireless and responsive approach aimed towards avoiding litigation when possible. With prior experience as a project management operational consultant at a boutique mechanical engineering subcontracting firm and a large commercial real estate company, Kevin understands the inner workings of both large and small companies—providing a well-informed perspective for owner and contractor clients engaged in real estate development, as well as clients facing construction and real estate litigation.
