Hemenway & Barnes has been my second home for the past 30 years. Starting out at H&B as an accounting clerk in 1990, I have had a unique opportunity to see the firm from many different vantage points - clerk, manager, director. While responsibilities vary by position, the firm’s client-service approach runs deep throughout the entire organization. From our receptionist to our IT department to our partners, everyone plays an important role in providing personalized service tailored to our clients’ unique goals and needs.
