Orr & Reno Launches O2 for Entrepreneurs

Orr & Reno has launched an innovative new specialty legal practice known as “O2 for Entrepreneurs” (www.o2legal.com), providing flat fee, technology-based legal services for business startups in the region and beyond. The announcement was made today by Peter F. Burger, president of the firm.

“We’re excited about O2 for Entrepreneurs,” says Burger. “It’s designed to do just what its name suggests—help breathe oxygen and life into new business startups by giving them the legal services they need, making them more accessible, and taking billing surprises out of the equation. As far as we know, it’s the first service of its kind in the region.”

O2 for Entrepreneurs is the brainchild of Orr & Reno attorneys Rebecca Perkins and Andrew Grosvenor.

“We’re on the younger side,” says Perkins, “with our own entrepreneurial spirit, tech savvy, and forward-thinking interest in helping to rebuild New Hampshire’s tradition of innovation. Today, you can launch a business with little more than a laptop, and our state is in fact home to a growing community of entrepreneurs. But when things get real, startups need legal help just like big companies. That’s where we come in.”

The practice specializes in bundled services—many offered for a flat fee—of the kind that business startups often need, including guidance on company formation, contracts, intellectual property protection, basic tax strategy, licensing agreements, venture capital planning, and crowdfunding. 

“Our job is to help make things easier for any new business, whether it’s high-tech, retail, farming, or even a brewery,” says Grosvenor. “On top of our focused legal services and business-sense approach, we’re also current with technology—working with clients electronically (via email, chat, video-call, secure cloud services, and more), over the phone, and in-person. We get it done right, we get it done affordably, and we get it done fast.” He adds that the practice has launched a new website at www.o2legal.com.  

“Critically,” concludes Perkins, “Orr & Reno stands behind us. The firm has deep resources and an energetic, collaborative culture. We have the good fortune to be able to leverage this—whether our clients need unusually specialized counsel today or are simply aiming to grow rapidly tomorrow—to help ensure good outcomes for everyone we serve at O2 for Entrepreneurs.”

A native of Stratham, New Hampshire, Rebecca Perkins trained at Dartmouth and Cornell and practiced in New York City and Washington, D.C., before returning home. Rebecca was named to Super Lawyer’s New England Rising Stars list in 2013-2014. She advises on financing options and structures, with a focus on crowdfunding as a new tool for raising capital. She also serves as the chair of the board of Natik, a nonprofit humanitarian organization in Boston that she helped found, and in her free time works to help keep young professionals in New Hampshire through community and housing development in the Seacoast. She is also a published author and co-author of articles on the revitalization of New Hampshire downtowns and other topics. Before her life as lawyer, she served in the Peace Corps in West Africa as a volunteer in small business development. Today, Perkins lives in Portsmouth and enjoys running, cooking, gardening, and playing with the local rugby club. 

Andrew Grosvenor is a native of Rhode Island, a graduate of Trinity College and Vermont Law School, and has lived in Vermont and New Hampshire for the past 10 years. He provides counsel on all aspects of small business, with a focus in copyright, trademark, and intellectual property law. In addition, he recently served as a judicial extern with former Orr & Reno shareholder Justice James Bassett of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Earlier, he was a piano player in a touring rock band and is still passionate about music. He enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and running, and is also a home brewer.

Geiger and Smith Author Bar News Articles

Orr & Reno shareholders Susan S. Geiger and Maureen D. Smith authored articles in the September 17, 2014 issue of the New Hampshire Bar Association Bar News publication.

Geiger's article examined recently revamped NH Public Utility Commission telephone utility rules that implement legislation intended to substantially decrease regulation of the state’s telephone companies.

Smith's article reviewed the potential impact of a recent EPA proposal that would mandate a nationwide carbon emission reduction of 30 percent by 2030 from the power sector, as well as a 25 percent reduction in other health-threatening pollutants.

Orr & Reno Clients Prevail in Two Supreme Court Cases

Orr & Reno shareholder Jeffrey Spear marked two recent successes at the New Hampshire Supreme Court. 
 
In Yager v. Clauson, 2013-381 (Aug 8, 2013), the plaintiff brought a pro se legal malpractice claim against the defendant attorney alleging that he’d missed an applicable statute of limitations for a timber trespass claim. The trial court granted the defendant’s motion to dismiss, ruling that an expert witness was required for all legal malpractice claims, and Mr. Yager hadn’t designated one. Spear, hired to pursue the appeal, argued that the law does not support such a blanket rule, and that whether a statute of limitations should have been met is “within the ken” of normal juror, and does not require an expert witness to explain. The Supreme Court agreed, and reversed the trial court’s order.
 
In Kassotis v. Town of Fitzwilliam, 2013-594, the plaintiff police chief sued the Town of Fitzwilliam for wrongful dismissal, contending that he hadn’t been afforded the “for cause” hearing required by statute. Representing the Town, Spear argued that Chief Kassotis hadn’t been dismissed or terminated; instead, the Town had simply chosen not to renew his contract, which provided for a two year term; no hearing was required by the statute, and no cause needed to be shown. The trial court had granted the Town’s motion to dismiss on that basis, and the Supreme Court affirmed for the same reasons.

Seven Attorneys Selected As "Best Lawyers in America"

Seven Orr & Reno attorneys have been selected by their peers across New England for inclusion in the new 2014–15 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®.

Best Lawyers is the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession. It has long been regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States (and now in nearly 70 other countries around the world).

The seven lawyers selected from Orr & Reno are:


In addition, two Orr & Reno lawyers were selected by their peers as “Concord Lawyer of the Year” in their practice areas (only a single lawyer per practice area in each community is honored as "Lawyer of the Year"):

  • George W. Roussos was selected as “Concord Lawyer of the Year” for Government Relations.
  • Susan S. Geiger was selected as “Concord Lawyer of the Year” for Energy Law.

Best Lawyers® is compiled by conducting peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Even if the votes for a lawyer are positive enough to merit his or her inclusion in a given year’s edition, the lawyer must maintain these votes to remain on the list in subsequent years. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate or be included.

Orr & Reno Mourns Loss of Former Colleagues

Orr and Reno grieves the loss of two former colleagues, Chuck Leahy and Gayle Braley, both of whom recently passed away.  

Chuck began his legal career at Orr and Reno in 1963 following graduation from Harvard Law School. He eschewed the lure of Wall Street to come home to New Hampshire where he had a profound impact on his State and the City of Concord over his illustrious career. He was the leading business and succession planning lawyer of his era, keenly intellectual and innovative with a rare ability to explain complex concepts in the most understandable of ways. He was a trusted business advisor to many of New Hampshire’s finest businesses and families.

One of Chuck’s many protégés was Gayle Braley, who he trained in the area of estate and succession planning. From her earliest days at Orr and Reno, Gayle exhibited a fearless style. Nothing intimidated her, not even cancer, which she battled with ferocity.

We miss them greatly.
