Mirick O'Connell
Client Appreciation & Networking Reception

On the evening of May 2, the law firm of Mirick O’Connell hosted a client appreciation and networking reception in the lobby of Mercantile Center, with several tenants and local business leaders in attendance.  
“We received many positive comments about the 'upscale' space. A few people who had not been in the building for a few years were blown away by the transformation! Having the option to host receptions in the lobby of our Worcester office is super convenient both for our attorneys and clients. Special thanks to the folks at Franklin Realty, Greg Abraham and his security team at Mercantile Center, and Struck Catering for always providing delicious food and excellent client service.”

- Maureen Grenier, Director of Marketing for Mirick O’Connell

Remember, June is...

June is Men's Health Month, and in particular, Men's Health Week is June 10 - 16, 2019.

The purpose of Men’s Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys on an international scale.

Men's Health Week gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with hundreds of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe

For more information on men’s health go to the Men’s Health Network
