Michael B. Peisner, of the Maine law firm Curtis Thaxter LLC, concentrates in the areas of corporate and commercial law and has an extensive LLC background. He served as Chairman of the Maine State Bar Association Task Force on LLCs, which guided Maine’s Act through its legislature, from 1992 to 1994, and of the subsequent task forces that added limited liability partnerships and amendments to the LLC Act. He was a member of the task force that drafted the Act enacted in 2010 to replace the Maine Limited Liability Company Act.

Paul A. Burkett is a shareholder in Rath, Young and Pignatelli’s Tax Practice Group. His practice focuses on federal and state tax matters, including business transactions, business formation and tax compliance, tax legislation, and tax audits. Paul represents all forms of business entities (C and S corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, joint ventures, and sole proprietorships) in every aspect of federal and state tax law.

John E. Ottaviani is Counsel to Partridge Snow & Hahn, LLP, in Providence, Rhode Island, and represents clients with particular emphasis on intellectual property matters, computer and technology related transactions, and counseling privately held businesses. He has frequently written and lectured on protecting rights in intellectual property and technology and on issues of concern to privately held businesses.

Thomas H. Moody, in his twenty-six year career as a business attorney at Downs Rachlin Martin, has served as counsel to investors and lenders and has advised small-to-medium sized businesses. His practice includes the formation of corporations and LLCs, a wide variety of debt and equity transactions, mergers and business acquisitions, and executive compensation.
