Our office is located in a prime downtown area near some of Boston’s historic sites including Faneuil Hall and the Old State House. Close proximity to top academic institutions, including Harvard and M.I.T., plays a major role in recruiting. Outside the office, Boston is a cultural and sports hub, home to world-famous museums, theaters, symphonies and a vibrant arts community.
The Boston office is heavily involved in community activities such as the Pan-Mass Challenge, an annual bike-a-thon that raises funds for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. For nearly a decade, L.E.K. Boston has fielded a team that has participated in the 163-mile bicycle ride from Wellesley, Massachusetts to Provincetown, Massachusetts. The Boston office also created a community service committee to provide ongoing, as well as one-time, community service opportunities for L.E.K. employees. This committee works with many nearby non-profits.
