Verrill's tax and business attorneys provide valuable counsel to our business clients at all stages of their development, from pre-formation planning through dissolution and windup. From the moment of initial engagement onward, our business lawyers continually strive to earn the trust and respect of each client, with the goal of being seen by the client as a valued advisor and true member of the business's management team.

Our deep bench and broad experience across a wide range of industries allow our business clients to get not only solid legal advice but also valuable and on-point business insights. Our experience in manufacturing, health care, financial services, professional services, life sciences, technology, and other sectors gives us the ability to offer assurances of timely senior-level attention to all matters.

Our business attorneys, in combination with colleagues in our other practice groups, act as a sounding board for business owners, managers, and executives. For many clients, we act as general counsel, daily fielding requests for advice regarding business disputes, contract interpretation, employment matters, regulatory issues, and much more.

We work closely with our clients, getting to know both their businesses and the people who operate them, as well as the environments and markets in which they operate. Our clients tell us it's this close working relationship that distinguishes Verrill from our competitors and enables us to assist our clients in structuring their businesses in ways best-suited for their particular needs.
