Advocacy Beyond the Courtroom

A prominent Maine business publication recently released its annual “lists” issue. It gave lists of the largest employers, largest financial institutions, largest woman owned businesses, etc. It also listed the largest Maine law firms. Not surprisingly, we were not listed. One list did catch our attention. It listed the forty largest Small Business Administration (SBA) loans for the year. Of the forty largest loans, Gilbert & Greif, P.A. had been counsel to the borrower in two of those transactions. So, even though we are way too small to be on the “largest law firm” list, we represented 5% of the largest SBA borrowers in the state. Our practice encompasses many substantive areas of the law, but we are always happy and proud to work with small Maine businesses to assist them in acquiring the financial backing they need to sustain themselves and grow in our great state of Maine.
