Goulston & Storrs Names First Female Managing Director
Michelle Porter has been appointed co-managing director at Goulston & Storrs, joining William Dillon in leading the firm from April 1, 2024. Formerly Co-Chair of the Private Client & Trust Group, she brings 25 years of experience in estate planning, business strategies, and charitable giving.
As the first woman in this role, Porter aims to drive excellence, collaboration, and diversity initiatives while expanding the firm’s reputation. As Porter assumes this role, Martin Fantozzi will transition back to his litigator role, advising REITs, investment firms, and academic institutions.
“I am thrilled to work alongside Bill to lead Goulston & Storrs into an exciting new chapter of continued growth, where we will maintain our unwavering dedication to client service and look to build upon our success across all of our practice areas,” said Porter. Goulston & Storrs, with over 450 employees in Boston, New York, and D.C., will occupy 100,000 square feet across four floors at its new Boston location.
