Forest Products, Pulp & Paper

The pulp, paper and forest products industries have faced immense changes over the past decade. For over 75 years, Pierce Atwood has counseled these industries in Maine and elsewhere. In Maine alone, this vital industry spends over a billion dollars annually and employs tens of thousands of men and women who earn, on average, the highest wages of any workers in the state. Pierce Atwood's long history of representing clients in this industry has led it to be on the "cutting edge" of relevant legal issues in the Northeast and across the nation, advising companies in virtually all areas of practice, including energy, environmental, product regulation, health and safety, labor, land use and forestry, legislative and regulatory, real estate sales, acquisitions financing, litigation, and taxation.

Please contact Matthew Manahan or Thomas Doyle for more information about our practices serving clients in the forest products industry.
