Verrill Dana Celebrates 150 Years of Service in Maine

New England Law Firm Recognizes Significant Anniversary Milestone With "The 150 Project"

PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwire - Feb 29, 2012) - Verrill Dana, a full-service law firm with headquarters in Portland, Maine, today announced it has launched "The 150 Project" to celebrate 150 years of service in Maine. Verrill Dana traces its roots back to 1862, when Byron D. Verrill began practicing law. The firm plans to mark its upcoming "birthday" by demonstrating its ongoing commitments to public service, philanthropy, the legal profession and the communities it serves in an innovative way.

Through The 150 Project, Verrill Dana will facilitate and recognize the donation of time, money or property -- in increments of 150 -- by attorneys or staff. Multiple teams from the firm's offices around New England have assembled to create their own "150" initiatives to benefit a range of causes, from fighting homelessness to planting trees to improving the environment. One upcoming event will be Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine's "Bowl For Kids Sake" in April.

"We're proud of our staying power in Maine and our reputation as an accessible, talented group of attorneys with a rich tradition of giving back," said Keith C. "K.C." Jones, managing partner, Verrill Dana. "In that spirit, we couldn't think of a more perfect way to commemorate this incredible accomplishment and honor our founder. Whether we're donating 150 hours of volunteer time, offering 150 hours of pro bono legal services or collecting 150 toys for children in need -- every way we give will make an impact. We're excited to see what the year will bring."

Over the coming months, Verrill Dana will host a range of events and activities to honor its 150th year, including a birthday party in April, a client-centered celebration and the dedication of its Legacy Conference Room, to name a few.
