“Often, old law confronts new business or technology.  When our clients confront new challenges, I enjoy applying practiced techniques to craft novel solutions.”

Colin Hagan focuses on commercial litigation matters including business disputes and shareholder derivative actions. He also focuses on regulatory enforcement actions as well as employment disputes.

Before joining SLG, Colin served in the Office of General Counsel at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and as a consultant in the fields of environmental and energy policy.

Colin has represented individual and business clients in proceedings in the state courts of Massachusetts and Vermont, including in Vermont’s designated environmental court, as well as before federal courts in Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, California, Colorado, and Indiana. Colin’s work involves motion practice at all stages of litigation. He also oversees appeals in several appellate courts. Recently, Colin has helped to achieve significant client victories, including surviving summary judgment on employment retaliation claims brought under Title VII and securing dismissal for a client at the pleadings stage in federal court in Indiana.
