our legal teams have been getting results across disciplines with our clients for many decades.
Portland, ME (PRWEB) March 12, 2009
The Portland, Maine-based regional law firm of Verrill Dana, LLP- with offices in Augusta, Boston, Hartford, and Washington DC - announced an initiative today to advise and work with clients on the impact and provisions of the new $787 billion federal stimulus package (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, or ARRA).
"Our Financial Crisis Response Team, created some months ago, has been studying the ARRA legislation daily as it progressed," said Managing Partner K.C. Jones. "Access to the know-how of such experts as former House Speaker Mike Saxl in Augusta and Charles Cragin, a former assistant to the Secretary of Defense, now enables Verrill Dana to 'hit the ground running' in advising our clients about this largest-ever government spending appropriation."
Verrill Dana's Financial Crisis Response Team was created specifically to help clients navigate the complex legal challenges associated with the current and evolving financial crisis. The ARRA legislation has been a major focus of this group.
Jones also pointed out that the 100-lawyer Verrill Dana legal practice groups have in-depth experience in many areas directly affected by the new federal stimulus package, such as energy and environmental permitting, utilities and telecommunications, commercial and tax exempt financing, healthcare, and education.
"In some of the specialized ARRA project areas, such as infrastructure and science, medical information technology, and transportation," said Jones, "our legal teams have been getting results across disciplines with our clients for many decades."
Jones stated that Verrill Dana will shortly be issuing a series of specialized "client alerts" on ARRA topics of client interest.
