Timothy M. Netkovick

I enjoy working with clients to resolve their everyday business needs, with the goal of reducing or eliminating their risk of litigation. I enjoy the opportunity to learn about each client’s business in order to help them develop a strategy that will address their unique set of circumstances.


Tim has nearly two decades of litigation experience, and has tried nearly two dozen cases to verdict.  Tim’s extensive trial experience in civil litigation, construction law, and employment law makes him a fierce litigation expert.  He counsels companies on a multitude of state and federal employment laws, including discrimination, harassment and retaliation, wage-and-hour, disability and leave, workplace safety and OSHA compliance, workers’ compensation, and contract negotiations.   

Tim is a frequent speaker on labor and employment-related legal topics. He has authored articles on a wide range of labor and employment law topics ranging from how to choose the correct insurance for your particular needs, to how to navigate the MCAD and the developing area of transgender rights.

Tim advises federal contractors by assisting them in creating and developing affirmative action plans and with OFCCP compliance. He also helps clients navigate OFCCP audits and defends them if the OFCCP issues notices of violation.

Tim’s preventive work includes drafting employee handbooks and policies, preparing non-disclosure, non-solicitation, and non-compete agreements, and conducting management trainings. 

Prior to joining The Royal Law Firm LLP, Tim worked as a trial attorney in Springfield, MA. He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from American International College, and his Juris Doctor from Western New England University School of Law.  He is admitted to practice in Massachusetts as well as the United States District Court for the Districts of Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Tim has volunteered for several years as a youth baseball coach and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Pioneer Valley Youth Hockey Association, in his hometown of South Hadley, where he resides with his wife and children.
