Friends and colleagues:
I’m pleased to announce that I was recently selected
by my peers for inclusion in The
Best Lawyers in America® 2003-2004 in the area
of Banking Law.
As part of my independent practice, I provide legal
and regulatory counsel to financial institutions and other businesses. For
the last 18 years, I have served as counsel to a number of Maine financial
institutions, large and small, serving variously as general counsel to some
of Maine’s leading financial institutions and as outside counsel to others.
Duties have ranged from bank regulatory and compliance matters to
legislative and administrative advocacy, contract drafting and negotiation
to policy review.
Past and current clients in the financial services
industry include state and federally chartered commercial banks, thrifts and
credit unions, as well as bank holding companies. They comprise closely
held and widely traded companies, as well as mutual and cooperative
Additionally, as Human Resources Director for two
companies and as an independent consultant, I have addressed a variety of
issues relating to employment policy and litigation, payroll and benefits
administration, and other personnel matters.
I look forward to any opportunity to assist in meeting
your institution’s needs.
