THE BENNETT LAW FIRM, P.A., was founded 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. Throughout the years, the firm has remained relatively small by design and it continues to provide highly specialized legal services to a broad client base. Although the firm is located in Portland, Maine, the firm’s client base stretches throughout New England.
THE BENNETT LAW FIRM, P.A. is a Charter Member of the International Society of Primerus Law Firms. Induction into the Primerus Society means that our firm was selected as one of the very best boutique law firms in the country. We are also the first New England law firm invited to join the Primerus Society.
In this increasingly litigious society, The Bennett Law Firm, P.A. 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 law practices, it handles complex civil and commercial litigation as well. The firm’s commercial practice focuses on resolving the complex legal matters that confront both businesses and individuals daily.
The firm’s lawyers have depth and experience in labor law and civil litigation in front of all forums including state and federal courts and administrative agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Maine Human Rights Commission, the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and the Department of Labor. All attorneys are members of several bar associations, and are active in the community and continuing education programs.
The firm prides itself on the long lasting, ongoing relationships which it maintains with its clients, both large and small. The firm’s clients appreciate our philosophy and hands on aggressive approach, which has helped build and maintain many long-term relationships. The best evidence of a job well done is a satisfied client — the cornerstone of our practice.
