Declaration of Trusts
A business trust offers businesses some of the advantages of a corporation without the need for incorporation. A Massachusetts business trust is an association where property is held and managed by a trustee(s) for the benefit of the beneficiaries, who hold of transferable “shares” i.e. ownership interest in the trust property. In Massachusetts, a business trust is created by recording a “declaration of trust” with the clerk of each city and town where the trust has a usual place of business and with the Secretary of the Commonwealth; any amendments to the declaration of trust must be filed in the same manner.

Appeal of Admin Agency Decisions
Calabrese Law Associates leverages its appeals litigation expertise and government/regulatory practice to effectively represent clients’ through the complicated process of appealing an administrative agency decision. Administrative agencies, which are agencies of the state and federal government, are becoming more common and powerful with each passing day. These government agencies often times have “rule” making authority and they use this authority to implement regulations that control specific sectors of society. This web of regulations overlap with the state law and federal law, creating a situation where, generally, a person/business cannot appeal a government agency decision to a court of law unless (1) the government agency issues a final decision and (2) the person/business appeals of the decision with the agency itself. Generally, only after all inter-agency appeal options are exhausted may a person/business file an appeal with a court of law.
