Lisa C. Wood

Foley Hoag LLP

Boston, MA, USA

Lisa Wood has over 33 years of experience handling complex business litigation, principally in the areas of antitrust, securities, fraud, and accountants’ liability. In recognition of her effectiveness as a litigator and antitrust counselor, Lisa has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA, which cited her as “one of the top litigators in Boston.”

Lisa advises numerous companies in securities and antitrust litigations, and in government investigations by the FTC, Antitrust Division, and SEC. She also has represented many different accounting firms, including all of the “Big Four” and other national, regional and local firms, in securities and accounting malpractice claims, and in regulatory investigations by the SEC, IRS, PCAOB and other federal and state authorities. She has an active antitrust counseling practice, including advice on joint ventures, standard setting, patent settlements, information sharing, benchmarking, IP licensing, distribution, pricing strategies, advertising and mergers.

Lisa plays a lead role in firm governance, co-chairing the Litigation Department, and serving on the Distribution and Billing Committees. Lisa has been instrumental in developing alternative fee arrangements for clients, implementing sophisticated billing and case management systems for complex litigation matters and instilling a client service discipline on case teams. According to Chambers, “her work and achievements have been incredible; she’s very efficient and client-focused.”

Lisa is active in the American Bar Association’s Sections on Antitrust and Litigation, and pens a regular column on practical litigation issues called Notes from the Field.
