Attorney-Client Relationship:

This site is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship between you and Verrill, and you should not act or rely on any information in this site without seeking the advice of an attorney. Any communication with us does not create an attorney-client relationship.

We would be pleased to communicate with you by e-mail. However, if you communicate with us--through this site or otherwise--in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you, your communication may not be treated as privileged or confidential. If you communicate with us by e-mail in connection with a matter for which we do already represent you, please remember that internet e-mail is not secure and you should avoid sending sensitive or confidential messages unless they are adequately encrypted. When communicating with us by e-mail from the links offered by this site, you will be required to acknowledge these disclaimers.

Advertising

The material on this site may be considered paid publicity and may also be considered advertising in some jurisdictions. The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon this or any other written information, and Verrill does not desire to represent clients based upon their review of any portions of this site that do not comply with legal or ethical requirements.

Designations

To the extent bar rules require us to designate a principal office and/or a single attorney responsible for this site, Verrill designates its office in Portland, Maine, USA as its principal office and designates Keith C. Jones as the attorney responsible for this site.

Privacy Policy

Attorneys, like all providers of personal financial services, are now required by law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy.

Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect

We may collect nonpublic personal information about you that is provided to us by you or obtained by us with your authorization.

Parties to Whom We Disclose Information

For current and former clients, we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice except as required or permitted by law, or by order of Court. Permitted disclosures include, for instance, providing information to our assistants and employees, and in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need to know that information to assist us in providing services to you. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of information being shared.

Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Current and Former Clients' Information

We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.

Please call William C. Knowles at (207) 774-4000 if you have any questions. Your privacy, our professional ethics, and the ability to provide you with quality legal services are very important to us.
