Gravel & Shea proudly welcomes David Boyd as a shareholder to its firm.
David brings more than 15 years of helping businesses and governmental entities solve problems through complex litigation and mediation. In his previous role, he was the deputy solicitor general and an assistant attorney general for the State of Vermont. Before his work for the State of Vermont, David served as an associate and later as a shareholder with Gravel & Shea, practiced at Dewey and LeBoeuf, and clerked for a federal district court judge.
“We are thrilled to welcome David back to our team,” Matt Byrne, shareholder at Gravel & Shea, said. “He is an experienced litigator with a nimble intellect who will help us provide outstanding service to our clients.”
David has tried cases in federal and state courts, before an American Arbitration Association panel, and has handled appeals before the Vermont Supreme Court and Second Circuit. Focusing on Alternative Dispute Resolution, Complex Civil Litigation, Appellate Litigation, Banking and Financial Services Litigation, First Amendment, and General Business Litigation, David brings a wealth of experience and a unique set of skills to the firm.
Beyond litigation, David will also be working as a mediator, drawing on his involvement in representing individuals, businesses, and governmental entities as both plaintiffs and defendants to help parties resolve cases. His commitment to excellence in mediation is underscored by his upcoming attendance at the Harvard Mediation Intensive Program, hosted by the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law.
David earned his B.A. from Middlebury College and later attained his J.D. from New York University School of Law, where he was inducted into the Order of the Coif.
