Interlaw has announced the appointment of a new partner firm in the United States to provide its trademark high quality legal services in Boston, Massachusetts and Portland, Maine. Leading independent law firm Verrill Dana LLP joined Interlaw on January 1, adding further expertise to the internationally recognized network, which operates in over 150 cities across the globe.

Consistently acknowledged as a leading firm by Chambers and Partners and other well-respected rankings such as Best Lawyers, Verrill’s roots go back some 160 years.

Today the firm has grown to a 60-lawyer practice in Boston, following the very recent combination with Rackemann, Sawyer & Brewster, P.C. to provide leading advice to businesses and individuals in the fields of health care, trusts and estates, labor and employment, real estate and insurance.

Glenn Cunningham, Chair of Interlaw comments:

"Interlaw has a comprehensive presence in the United States, and this further strengthens our ability to provide a gateway to global legal services for our significant client base across North America.

"We know that Interlaw’s success lies in a shared ethos to deliver the best possible service to our clients. In Verrill we have found a trusted partner who shares our values, and we are delighted to welcome such a well-respected firm to the Interlaw family."

K.C. Jones, managing partner at Verrill, comments:

"Our firm was founded on the principles of mutual respect and camaraderie, commitment to public service, the community and the legal profession. This remains as true today as it was more than 150 years ago - we knew instantly that we had found a like-minded community in Interlaw.

"We look forward to working closely with our new Interlaw colleagues in the months and years ahead to provide our clients with the same level of service they have come to expect from us on a global scale."
