Our History

Upton & Hatfield, LLP grew out of the Concord law practice founded by Robert W. Upton in 1908. His reputation for rigorous preparation of cases established Upton as one of the state’s outstanding trial lawyers excelling in the fields of torts, contract law, and constitutional law. He remained active in his legal practice and in political and community affairs until his death in 1972. A highlight of Upton’s public service career was his appointment by the Governor to fill a vacancy in the U.S. Senate in 1953 through 1954.

The firm has seen changes in its name over the years, becoming Upton & Hatfield, LLP after merging in 2001 with Hatfield, Moran & Barry, P.A. in Hillsborough. Today, Upton & Hatfield practices law across New Hampshire, litigating cases in both state and federal courts, with offices in Concord, Hillsborough, Peterborough, and Portsmouth.

As Upton & Hatfield has grown, its leadership position in the litigation and commercial fields has stayed firmly in place. Members of the firm remain committed to the same rigorous standards and dedication that distinguished its founder—to meet the legal needs of the firm’s clients with innovative, timely, and responsible counsel.
