Brewing Up a Small Business: Legal Issues Affecting Maine’s Craft Breweries
On June 8, Verrill Dana attorney, Tawny Alvarez, will participate in a panel discussion entitled, "Brewing Up a Small Business: Legal Issues Affecting Maine's Craft Breweries," hosted by the Cumberland Bar Association at Preti Flaherty in Portland, Maine.

The discussion will conclude with a Q&A session. Attendees are eligible for 1.5 CLE credits.
