Business Continuity Planning

It is hard to imagine a business that COVID-19 has not adversely impacted in recent weeks, and just keeping the lights on is the primary concern for many of our business clients. For others, it is risk mitigation as they pursue new and evolving business opportunities. And for still others, it is assessing whether insurance is available to cover business losses. Our team includes some of the most respected and experienced business law professionals in northern New England, and we can help you navigate your COVID-19-related business issues with less stress.

Tax Planning

The CARES Act has made many changes to federal tax law relevant to businesses, including expanded tax exclusions, loss carryback rules and payroll tax reimbursements.
