Ed Polubinski is an experienced transactional corporate lawyer. He brings large firm expertise to a smaller firm where his clients have direct accessibility to him and receive a smaller firm’s more cost-effective billing rates. This permits him to provide quality and value to clients whose transactions range from $1 Million to $10 Million in size, or even smaller. His particular interest is mergers and acquisitions smaller than $10 Million in value.
Ed assists clients with critical transactions such as start-ups, debt and equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, complex contractual arrangements, restructurings and other transactions. For many years, he has also aided many frozen out minority shareholders in close corporations to regain the corporate benefits to which they were entitled.
He began his practice at Hughes Hubbard & Reed, a Wall Street law firm, and later practiced at large Boston law firms (he was a founding partner of Davis, Malm & D’Agostine and of counsel to Warner & Stackpole and to Peabody & Arnold LLP). In 2005, Ed joined the smaller law firm, Lyne, Woodworth & Evarts LLP, where he now practices.
Ed writes the Business Corporations book in the Thomson Reuters Massachusetts Practice series. He taught a course in mergers and acquisitions at Boston University School of Law, was a member of the Board of Directors of Opera Boston and has served as an officer and director of several corporations. He is a Life Fellow of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation and is listed in Who’s Who.
Ed is an avid fly fisherman and fly tier.
