Six DRM Attorneys Added to New Hampshire Roster: Office Moving to Larger Space

Six Downs Rachlin Martin attorneys, including two firm directors, have earned admission to the New Hampshire Bar Association in the past twelve months, bringing the total number admitted in the Granite State to 19 and adding strength to the firm’s practice in the Upper Valley.

To accommodate its growth, the firm has also announced that it will move to a more spacious office in the Upper Valley region early in 2017.

Directors newly-admitted in New Hampshire over the past year are Elizabeth Kohler and Nancy Malmquist, who work in the area of energy and telecommunications law. Associate Alison Wells focuses on Trusts and Estates. Associate Benjamin Traverse is a labor and employment lawyer. Associate Shannon Lenzini practices business law. Of Counsel Attorney Heidi Trimarco, who was the latest admitted on Dec. 1, practices in the area of energy law, environmental law and telecommunications.

The changes come nearly 10 years after attorneys with the firm of Daschbach, Csatari & Young, PLLC agreed to form a combined practice with DRM in Lebanon in early 2007..

“As we had hoped the combination of the two firms proved very successful,” said Tom Csatari, a principal in the DCY firm and now a director at DRM. “We have organically outgrown our space on the Green in Lebanon and look forward to moving to a new and modern location at the heart of the Upper Valley between Hanover and Lebanon. At the same time, we are adding more legal resources to our team in New Hampshire and we are well suited for the next chapter in the firm’s development here.”

Attorneys whose primary office is in the Upper Valley include Willemien Dingemans Miller (Trusts and Estates), Elizabeth Rattigan (Labor and Employment), Kim Butler (Corporate Law) and Peter Van Oot (Environment and Land Use), along with Csatari, Malmquist, Trimarco and Wells.

Others who are licensed in New Hampshire and serve the Upper Valley Office are Traverse and Tim Copeland (Labor and Employment), Will Dodge, Daniel Crisp and Kohler (Energy and Telecommunications); Jim Gallagher (Dispute Resolution); Lenzini, Craig Miskovich and Mary Parent (Corporate Law ), and Bruce Palmer, Kate Strickland and Merritt Schnipper (Litigation).
