Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Highlights Mr. Tetler’s Success in Advancing Corporate Clients’ Growth

Worcester, Boston and Framingham, MA—January 4, 2021—Attorney George W. Tetler III, Partner, Bowditch & Dewey, has been named to Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s inaugural list of top 20 Massachusetts Go To Lawyers for Business Law.

He consistently draws on his four decades of experience, and a practical, common-sense outlook, to help businesses overcome complex problems and reach new levels of growth,” said Attorney Paul C.
