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.


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.


We work closely with clients to maximize their opportunity for success in state and federal courts, and administrative hearings in Vermont, New Hampshire, and nationally. We first seek solutions, but have a track record of going to trial when necessary.


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.


Primmer assists lenders and borrowers in commercial, retail finance, and general banking. The firm provides assistance to financial institutions regarding general banking matters, securities issues, mergers and acquisitions, and regulatory compliance.


We provide counsel to hospitals, nursing homes, mental health agencies, physician groups, professional provider associations and private health care interests on regulatory compliance, governance, contracting, financing and employment.

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.

Energy &

Our Energy and Telecommunications Law Group represents regulated and unregulated energy and telecommunications service companies in all aspects of their business in Vermont and throughout New England.


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.

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.
