Portland, ME (Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011
The Bennett Law Firm is pleased to announce it has been chosen for two 2010 legal awards by Corporate INTL Magazine. The two titles the firm has received are:
- Employment/Labor Law Firm of the Year in Maine
- Litigation Advisory Firm of the Year in Maine.
The Corporate INTL Awards (http://www.corp-intl.com) merit those who have been active this past year and have demonstrated superior client service and legal knowledge. All award winners have been chosen through processes of public nominations and detailed research looking at service range, business type, geographical location, how the business operates and the expertise each law firm can offer to clients and companies in their respective practice areas. The firms then are reviewed by an independent awards panel consisting of business leaders, experts in the relevant field of law and the editor of Corporate INTL Magazine.
Located in Portland, Maine, The Bennett Law Firm is a boutique firm specializing in labor law, employment law and civil litigation throughout New England. The firm was founded nearly fifty years ago by its namesake, Herbert H. Bennett, a well known and nationally prominent trial lawyer whose practice focused on representing management on issues of labor and employment law. The firm has remained relatively small by design and it continues to provide highly specialized legal services to a broad client base. The Bennett Law Firm offers experienced legal guidance in aggressively avoiding unionization and is also at the forefront in developing preventative policies and procedures, training, avoiding, and if necessary, resolving employment disputes (including alternative dispute resolution), negotiating collective bargaining agreements and defending litigation arising from employment disputes. In addition to the firm's labor and employment practices, it handles commercial and civil litigation, and focuses on resolving the complex legal matters that confront both businesses and individuals daily.
The Bennett Law Firm is also a member of the International Society of Primerus Law Firms (Primerus). Primerus is a society of top-rated, independent, boutique law firms that have earned the right to display the Primerus seal of quality. As one of the most respected law firm societies, Primerus has over 170 member firms in 125 cities located in 23 countries throughout the world. Primerus has become the size of some of the world's largest law firms. However, unlike most large firms, Primerus is growing at an unprecedented pace, and is expanding throughout Europe, Asia, and elsewhere around the globe. Primerus firms provide clients with responsive, partner-level service at reasonable fees. Law firms in the U.S. and Canada must be AV-rated using the Martindale-Hubbell peer review service. For firms outside of North America, consideration is given to respected resources such as Chambers Global Guide, Legal 500 EMEA, and IFLR 1000. Additionally, once approved for membership, every Primerus firm is audited, annually, to ensure that the legal services they continue to provide to clients are of a consistent, high quality, year after year. Each member is committed to the following standards: Integrity, Excellent Work Product, Reasonable Fees, Continuing Legal Education, Civility and Community Service.
