Andrew Botti to Speak at Upcoming Boston Bar Association Event

McLane Middleton attorney Andrew P. Botti will be a panelist at the Boston Bar Association’s upcoming webinar, “Remedies for Wrongdoing in Close Corporations and Partnerships” on October 26 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Much has been written and discussed about the duties of shareholders in close corporations as well as the duties of shareholders to the corporation. Much less has been written and discussed about the equitable remedies available when wrongdoing is proven – or relief provided through a preliminary injunction. This program will address those remedies and types of relief, with a focus on the following:

  • Types of relief and how they relate to types of wrongdoing
  • Remedies in context of shareholder/partner employment
  • Limitations on remedies, with particular focus on Brodie
  • Distinctions between harm to corporation and harm to shareholder
  • Specific relief at preliminary injunction stage
  • The benefits and drawbacks of mediation in terms of remedies


Andrew represents corporations, smaller businesses, and family owned and operated enterprises in complex business and employment-related issues. He advises management and business owners/operators on business disputes, shareholder issues, employee discrimination claims, and commercial litigation matters.  He has tried numerous cases to verdict in both state and federal court, and has appeared before various administrative and legislative agencies such as the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. Andrew has testified before the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development of the Massachusetts legislature regarding the efficacy of “An Act Relative to Non-competition Agreements,” and has been actively involved in the debate over recent efforts to eliminate non-competes in their entirety.

Andrew was appointed to the Massachusetts Economic Development Planning Council by Governor Charlie Baker.  The Council’s mission was to develop a written comprehensive economic development policy for Massachusetts, and construct a strategic plan for its implementation.  The plan was eventually signed into law by the Governor.
