Martha Broderick, Esq.
I have owned a small practice in Lincoln, Maine, since 1983, the same year I was admitted to the Maine and Federal Bar. My current practice, Business Law Centers, began in 2008. Since then, I have had between 150-200 cases per year, most of which are business clients who consult on contracts, joint ventures, business formation ( LLC, etc…), real estate problems, bankruptcy (chapters 7 and 13), and debt resolution issues. Estate and succession planning for small to medium-sized businesses are also a part of my job. Clients have included several credit unions, local innkeepers, a local newspaper, retail stores, small manufacturing, cannabis business, farmers, landlords, and developers. We also assist families with guardianships, adoptions, and estates.
I serve as the corporate clerk for 32 northern and central Maine businesses and 12 non-profits, including the local Humane and Historical societies (pro bono clients). Other projects include actively helping to redevelop a closed lumber yard as a converted retail business. I continue to support and consult for an economic development project in Eastport, Maine, for a historic preservation project known as Sea Street.
Annually, I conduct seminars for working collection officers and counsel for the Maine Credit Union League (MCUL). As a senior attorney, I also mentor and assist new attorneys in ethical issues that develop during their initial years.
Since I teach diversity and ethics at the Maine Business School, I am often consulted by others surrounding those issues. I also have conducted private training as needed for my clients’ post-litigation and to develop risk management tools. In 2020, I was awarded the Katahdin Excellence award for pro bono work from the State Bar Association.
My writing is usually case-specific case briefs. I spend my time representing clients throughout the year, full-time in the summer and part-time during teaching semesters. My office has been located at 9 Main Street in Lincoln, Maine, since 2008. Prior to that, I was a partner in Broderick and Broderick for 24 years at another location in Lincoln, Maine.
