ATR clients, Craignair Inn and Restaurant and Greg & Lauren Soutiea are proactive members of the resilient Maine hospitality industry and organizations such as Hospitality Maine, Penobscot Bay Chamber of Commerce, and the Saint George Business Alliance who are making creative changes to the business and operations while maintaining strict health and social pandemic procedures to protect customers, staff and themselves. If that were not enough, Greg and Lauren have worked with the Maine Coast Heritage Trust to provide parking for the public’s access to the Clark Island Preserve and other State of Maine conservation lands. ATR attorneys Jerome Gamache and Jake Bowie have been with Greg and Lauren every step of the way from drafting and negotiating the purchase agreement terms for the Soutiea’s acquisition of the Craignair Inn and Restaurant, handling the title work and acquisition due diligence and setting up the corporate entities to hold real estate and operate the business, to working with the State of Maine to craft the conservation easement with Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and ATR could not be more pleased to see the community spirit shown by Greg and Lauren in the time operating the Craignair Inn and Restaurant. ATR is ready to assist all of its hospitality industry clients, and any other business owners in their commercial and real estate oriented endeavors.
