Attorney Gilbert J. Schipani is the founder and managing partner of Tempus Fugit Law. Gil focuses his practice in the areas of real estate, business, and civil litigation and is involved in every department of Tempus Fugit Law.

Gil founded Tempus Fugit Law because he believed the legal market in Boston needed a shake-up. Gil believes Tempus Fugit Law provides that shake-up by matching entrepreneurial-focused and top-notch local legal talent with superior legal technology.

Gil has worked at a number of financial and legal firms throughout Massachusetts. His experience is rich in the areas of real estate conveyancing, business law, and civil litigation. Gil’s prior role as general counsel for a start-up financial services and wealth management company, coupled with his service as the Assistant City Solicitor for the City of Brockton, enables him to better assist his clients in a wide array of business, commercial, and litigation services.

Gil has dealt with a variety of legal matters from cell tower disputes, civil rights & discrimination violations, wage & hour claims, real estate conveyancing, personal injury, business, and employment claims. He has closed hundreds of real estate transactions and litigated and settled hundreds of personal injury and employment claims over his career. Gil was named a 2016 Massachusetts Super Lawyer.

Gil is also the founder of Boston Court Coverage (www.bostoncourtcoverage.com), which specializes in substitute counsel/court coverage for lawyers and consumers. Consumers can hire Boston Court Coverage for legal representation for single or limited court appearances, drafting legal documents, or to mediate their legal dispute, also known as limited assistance representation (LAR). Lawyers often hire Boston Court Coverage to cover hearings that they cannot attend.

Gil is a graduate of St. Sebastian’s High School in Needham MA, Hamilton College in Clinton NY, and Suffolk University Law School in Boston, MA.
