Merrill's Wharf
254 Commercial Street
Portland, ME 04101
While we are now a firm of more than 140 lawyers with offices throughout New England and in Washington D.C., our historic headquarters is in Portland, Maine where we offer a full array of legal services to our clients. We are proud of our roots, but just as proud of the foundation they have provided us in building a firm with practices and practitioners that are nationally and internationally recognized. 

Most recently in Portland, we are very excited to have moved into a historic building on Merrill's Wharf that was built circa 1840.  The project to rehabilitate our new offices was truly unique and has revitalized not only a proud old building, but a portion of the Portland waterfront as well.  We hope you will come to visit us at our new offices soon.
