Margaret “Meg” Gilmartin

A 2007 graduate of Western New England University School of Law, Ms. Gilmartin spent nearly 30 years in Technical and Operational roles for a variety of manufacturers before her career in the law. Her most recent non-legal role was as Vice President of Global Quality and Regulatory Affairs for a mid-sized adhesive film manufacturer based in the UK. Ms. Gilmartin knows firsthand as a business executive what is required of a legal counsel in a business environment and the breadth of experience to understand the subtle ramifications of the decisions concerning the businesses of her clients. As the former North American General Counsel for this same entity she gained extensive experience in corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, negotiating and drafting a wide variety of contracts as well as dispute resolution through arbitration and litigation.

“an experienced business executive…an experienced business lawyer”

In her years as a solo practitioner, Attorney Gilmartin has broadened her practice to include 3 additional areas of practice: Real Estate, Estate Planning and Probate and Family Law.
