Nick Carter knows his way around the courtroom. With nearly three decades of trial experience in state and federal courts, his successful courtroom advocacy has led to multiple seven-figure jury verdicts for clients, as well as favorable outcomes through dispositive motions, arbitration results, and settlements.
A partner at Todd & Weld, Nick has a strong record of litigation success in a vast array of matters, including complex business disputes, employment discrimination claims, financial fraud claims, defamation, and real estate disputes.
Recent examples of Nick’s courtroom success include obtaining a:
- $2 million federal jury verdict after a three-week trial in favor of a high-ranking female Boston Police detective for gender bias, retaliation, and hostile work environment after she lodged gender bias accusations against a male supervisor.
- $1.5 million jury verdict after a two-week trial in federal court on behalf of a law enforcement official for job discrimination and defamation; the jury awarded significant punitive damages.
- $4.4 million jury verdict in state court on behalf of two estates seeking the return of inheritance money in an investment account, where the jury found that a financial advisor and a deceased man's nephew had conspired to secretly divert the account funds; the jury awarded significant punitive damages.
Nick's track record has earned him high regard in the trial bar, as exemplified by his selection to Best Lawyers in America for commercial litigation, which selection is based on peer-review evaluations. He has been frequently named to Massachusetts Super Lawyers for general litigation.
Nick is conversant in Spanish and French.
