Press Release: Robert G. (Bob) Young II, Bowditch & Dewey, Honored Among Massachusetts Go To Lawyers for Employment Law

Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Highlights Mr. Young’s Success in Resolving and Defending High-Exposure Claims

Boston, Framingham and Worcester, MA—May 10, 2021—Attorney Robert G. (Bob) Young II, Partner, Bowditch & Dewey, was recently named to Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s inaugural list of top 20 Massachusetts Go To Lawyers for Employment Law.

The publication honored Mr. Young for his exceptional representation of businesses, municipalities, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and executives facing high-exposure claims and disputes.

These involve discrimination and retaliation, non-competition, trade secrets, wage-and-hour and other complex employment-related issues. In addition, he conducts internal investigations when employers face harassment, whistleblower and other employee claims.

“In the seven years I have worked with Bob Young at Bowditch, he has consistently provided our clients with practical counsel and a steady, reassuring hand. During COVID-19, his leadership and guidance have been invaluable. His selection by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly is extremely well-deserved,” said Attorney Timothy (Tim) Van Dyck, Partner and Practice Area Leader, Employment and Commercial Litigation.

Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly highlights Mr. Young’s ability to resolve cases successfully before trial—from a construction firm receiving a cease-and-desist letter for hiring a competitor’s past employee, to an employer threatened with discrimination charges for (allegedly) not accommodating a workplace injury.

At trial, he also recently obtained a complete defense verdict for a Fortune 500 company facing a judgment of more than $2 million in a retaliation case.

Mr. Young has been named a Massachusetts Super Lawyer in the Employment and Labor category since 2017, and was a Super Lawyers Rising Star from 2012-2016. He earned his J.D., magna cum laude, from Boston University (BU) School of Law, and his B.A., magna cum laude, from BU, as well.
