MaineBiz highlights Berman & Simmons’ renovation of historic Lewiston building

MaineBiz, the leading source in Maine for business news, published an article on Oct. 12 about the renovation of Berman & Simmons’ headquarters in downtown Lewiston.

The article written by Laurie Schreiber was titled “Century-old law firm joins Lewiston’s revitalization push.”

Here’s an excerpt:

Berman & Simmons, a law firm that specializes in personal injury and medical malpractice, is renovating the historic building in downtown Lewiston that has served as the firm’s headquarters for over 100 years.

The renovation of the historic Osgood Building at 129 Lisbon St., and the adjacent Supovitz Building, which is also owned by Berman & Simmons, includes preservation of the front of the building and replacement of bricks where necessary, and revamping the first floor for a new reception area and conference rooms. The work began in the spring and is expected to be completed this fall.

The renovation was sparked by the need for modern conference rooms, said the firm’s managing director, Craig Bramley.

“We have been committed to Lewiston and to Lisbon Street for over 100 years, and we really wanted to have a conference space that honors our history, but also reflects who we are as a firm now,” he said.
