Estate Planning
& Trusts

We assist families in transferring assets to future generations. We draft wills, trusts
and other documents and facilitate the establishment of family foundations, the use
of insurance and other mechanisms that assist intergenerational transfers.


We guide clients through the process of structuring loan workouts or purchasing distressed businesses; and represent lenders financing businesses operating as debtors-in-possession or contemplating filing for bankruptcy protection.


Our corporate team assists clients in the choice and formation of business entities and in matters of corporate governance and capital structure, including issuance of securities. We also work with clients in contracting and commercial transactions.

Captive Insurance

We work for clients to maintain a sound, flexible regulatory environment. Representing risk retention groups, captives and other alternative risk mechanisms, we provide corporate support services — formations, redomestications, mergers and dissolutions.


We help clients navigate the multitude of employment challenges in the work place by providing human resource advice and counseling, protecting clients' interests in court, as well as administrative settings, for any type of employment-related dispute.


We provide clients strategic counsel to advance their interests before government. Our esteemed reputation conducting results-based public policy advocacy makes Primmer one of the region's most influential lobbying and law firms.
