History

In 1912, lawyers and former Harvard classmates Robert Goodwin and Joseph Procter ran into each other on the street and – as the story goes – decided to start their own law firm. On July 1, 1912, Goodwin & Procter opened its offices at 84 State Street in Boston, with the partners undertaking a general practice of law.

In the winter of 1912, Robert Goodwin with Att. Amos Taylor represented Marjorie Newell Robb against Oceanic Steam Navigation Company for the sum of $110,400.00 together with costs from April 15th, 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic. The loss of the life of her husband for the sum of $110,000.00, and the lose of the luggage and personal effect in the sum of $400.00.
