Since its founding in 1871, Perkins Thompson has emphasized business-oriented counseling, professionalism and integrity. The firm represents major banking, utilities, manufacturing, petroleum and gas refining and distribution, forest products, health care, and retail and wholesale distribution businesses, in addition to small start-up companies, local businesses and individuals.
The firm dedicates itself to producing timely, quality legal services efficiently. The firm's moderate size assures personal attention to clients' needs by experienced, knowledgeable practitioners, and permits careful control of the quality of services, in addition to avoiding the dissipation of client resources through over-lawyering. The firm regularly discusses budgets for legal services with existing and potential clients and provides estimates of probable charges for specific projects.
Legal issues and legal problems no longer stop at the border. As clients increasingly operate in multiple states, the firm now actively provides legal counsel and litigation services to its clients on matters of New Hampshire law and on legal issues in other New England states. In addition to Maine, Perkins Thompson attorneys are registered to practice in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York.
