Brian L. Champion


Trusts & Estates / Business Law

Brian L. Champion is admitted to practice in the state and federal courts of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia in Washington D.C.  He is also admitted to The First Circuit Court of Appeals and The United States Supreme Court.

Trusts & Estates:  Mr. Champion believes that the caring for one’s family and loved ones begins with careful and thoughtful planning. Besides planning for one’s death, careful planning includes advanced preparation for periods of potential incapacity, whether caused by an accident, disease or illness. The best way for one to do so is to have in place, at a minimum, a will, a durable power of attorney, and a health care directive or proxy.  Mr. Champion works closely with clients to understand their concerns, thoughts, and desires so that the client and their families are prepared to meet life’s challenges.  Mr. Champion represents individuals, trustees, and personal representatives in the administration of trusts and estates. He is also a member of the Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine Trust & Estate Bar Sections.

Business Law:  Mr. Champion advises clients and assists them in creating small corporations. He works closely with clients to help them develop the best form of organizations for their needs and desires; such as: Limited Liability Companies (LLC), or a traditional C-Corporation.

For clients with existing small companies, Mr. Champion advises and assists them in modifying corporate documents as circumstances change; how best to wind down, or divide a small company into separate entities. Often a client’s estate plan will develop a succession plan. Mr. Champion assists those clients with the development of various Trusts or Buy-Sell Agreements to meet the client’s needs. He is in favor of creating a “Team” approach for complex circumstances, and will suggest including a client’s accountant and financial planner to most efficiently achieve a successful result.
