Hinckley Allen announced today that legal industry executive Michael P. Kiskinis has been named Chief Operating Officer of the firm, effective April 2, 2018. Kiskinis joins Hinckley Allen from Sullivan & Worcester LLP, where he served as COO. He is replacing Hinckley Allen’s longtime firm Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, Charles R. Reppucci, who announced his retirement following a distinguished 32-year career at the firm.
“Charlie has been a multi-talented leader over the past 32 years, helping the firm develop and execute its strategic vision,” said Managing Partner, David J. Rubin. “He has played many critical roles in helping Hinckley Allen become the Am Law 200 firm it is today. We are grateful for his dedication and many contributions.”
“We are delighted to welcome Michael Kiskinis to the firm,” said Rubin. “His deep legal executive experience will bring perspectives for continued growth and success in the future. He has a proven track record of success at some of New England’s finest law firms and we are confident that he will help our lawyers continue to provide value and superior service to our clients.”
Kiskinis will be responsible for managing the firm’s business, financial and administrative operations and assisting Managing Partner David J. Rubin in executing the firm’s strategic growth and expansion. He will oversee the firm’s senior management team, which includes financial management and accounting, marketing, business development, information technology, strategic planning, human resources management and facilities and office operations. Kiskinis will also serve as an ex officio member of the firm’s governing Executive Committee.
Prior to joining Hinckley Allen, Kiskinis was Chief Operating Officer at Boston-based Sullivan & Worcester LLP, where he was responsible for all administrative functions at the 175 lawyer Am Law 200 firm. Before that, he served as Deputy Chief Operating Officer at Locke Lord LLP (formerly Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP) and as Chief Financial Officer and Director of Finance at Goodwin Procter LLP.
Reppucci has served Hinckley Allen in numerous capacities since 1986, working closely with multiple managing partners and firm lawyers to provide strategic direction and help ensure successful growth and profitability for the firm, including business expansion. Reppucci will continue in his current role as Chairman of the Board of Directors for Care New England Health System, where he plays a critical role in the proposed merger with Partners HealthCare, which would create a national model for health care coordination. Reppucci will also remain a Director of the Board of the New York Blood Center.

“Through the collaborative efforts of many in our organization, we have built a talented and successful law firm by providing value and delivering results for our clients,” said Reppucci. “Looking ahead to the future, I’m confident that the firm is poised for many years of continued success. I hope I’ve inspired a new generation to view Hinckley Allen as a place to build a long-lasting career and make a difference in our communities.”
