Client Comments

"I have worked with Mr. McKay for six years in a number of contexts, including M&A transactions, his long tenure as Clerk of my corporation, and as a valued business advisor. Time and again, his combination of legal expertise and common business sense has proved invaluable. Particularly noteworthy in my experience is his ability to gain the trust of all parties in a complex business arrangement or negotiation, creating opportunities where others saw challenges."

"As one of Mr. McKay's oldest, but smallest clients, I have developed an enduring respect for his well-reasoned, competent, and always prompt response to my questions and needs. Highly experienced in his specialty, he is quick to refer me to another attorney in the firm when my needs are better served. I take great comfort from knowing that I have his counsel at hand as I deal with an ever more complex business world."

-James Shields
The Byer Manufacturing Company

"Mr. McKay has served the legal needs of our organization for many years in a highly competent and professional manner. All of the successful service ingredients are there, including timeliness, cost effective service, and sharply-focused legal advice in dealing with a full range of legal issues of concern to the organization. Of higher importance is Mr. McKay's ability to support the strategic thinking of the organization as it continuously strives to make the most of its involvement in a complex, public/private partnership to meet the waste disposal needs of 170 Maine municipalities. Mr. McKay is more than a legal advisor, he's a team member."

-Greg Lounder
Executive Director
Municipal Reveiw Committee, Inc.

"Dan McKay has been judicious in guiding principal shareholders through the mechanics of governance and the especially delicate matters of recruiting minority shareholders. His business experience and careful explanations contributed to resolutions rather than protracted negotiations or misunderstandings. He is a solid and trusted advisor."
