Brann & Isaacson grew from a two–person law firm in Lewiston, Maine in the 1920’s that included a future Governor of the State of Maine, to one of the leading boutique law firms today representing over 100 online and multichannel companies across the country on the issues that affect that industry, including tax, intellectual property, privacy and data security, and consumer protection. This decades–long experience translates into shorter learning curves, greater efficiency, and more responsive representation. And we have not forgotten our roots, as we continue to provide real–world advice to companies and others in Maine and elsewhere.

Brann & Isaacson is unique among its peers—a boutique law firm grounded in Maine that represents over 100 large and small online and multichannel companies across the country. The firm is general counsel to L.L. Bean, one of the most prominent and admired retailers in the industry. Today, we advise many of the companies in the Internet Retailer’s Top 500 Guide, as well as many small companies that hope someday to be included in that list.

 Large and small online and multichannel companies come to us based on our expertise and efficiency resulting from decades of experience addressing issues that confront this industry. Whether it is taxation of remote sellers, or patent trolls who claim that they too invented the Internet, we use our familiarity with the industry to develop promptly practical solutions that allow our clients to get back to business.

With our national practice, we have represented clients before administrative agencies and state and federal courts in over half of the states in the country, and we have tried multi–million dollar cases to a jury verdict. Our lawyers have handled well over 100 appeals in most of the federal courts of appeal, and in many states, and in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Although we represent some of the largest and best–known companies in America, we have not forsaken our Maine roots. We bring the same passion and practicality to our representation of start–ups, entrepreneurs, and individuals in Maine. And we bring our commitment to service to our representation of public sector clients. Whether it is L.L. Bean or When Pigs Fly Bakery, the approach is the same—what is the best, practical solution from the client’s perspective.
