Michael B. Peisner

Mike Peisner brings to the firm significant experience in money-center financing, general corporate and business planning law.

Mike has represented clients in several hundred million dollars of financing, including SEC stock registrations and such tax-driven transactions as sale-leasebacks, sale of limited partnership and limited liability company (LLC) interests. He has engineered sophisticated corporate reorganizations (including non-profits), handled numerous asset and equity acquisitions, and advised clients of various sizes on business planning matters, including tax and securities issues. He chaired the Maine State Bar Association task force on LLCs, which was instrumental in the passage of the original enabling legislation, and in the passage of subsequent amendments, including inter-species merger and conversion legislation.

Before attending law school, Mike worked as a management auditor for the U.S. General Accounting Office.
