Michael S. Malloy, Esq. 

Managing Attorney

Michael is a business lawyer and entrepreneur devoted to helping Maine professionals build and protect their life’s work. In 2016, after several years practicing at medium–sized firms, where he represented some of Maine’s largest private employers and municipalities, Michael launched The Malloy Firm as an independent practice based in Lewiston-Auburn, with a statewide reach.

Michael’s practice includes the areas of commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and employer compliance. He represents a number of lenders, businesses, and private practice professionals. Michael fully embraces technology as a tool to help bridge access to counsel challenges in Maine’s rural communities, and as a means to serve clients more efficiently and more securely, while maintaining a personal, high-touch connection with each one of his clients.

To further embrace these tools, and to lead with value, in 2023, Michael started a podcast called Private Practices in Maine to help licensed professionals (such as dentists, attorneys, chiropractors, veterinarians, and optometrists) get the guidance and actionable information they need to build a thriving business. It is free to listen to, and available here or wherever fine podcasts are available.

Involved in his community and within the bar, Michael is a frequent presenter and preferred business partner of the Maine Dental Association and is the past President of the Androscoggin County Bar Association. He is currently chair of the board of the Auburn Public Library and a member of the Board of Governors of the Maine State Bar Association. He has previously served as general counsel to the City of Auburn, a Director of the Lewiston-Auburn Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, a Trustee of the Catholic Foundation of Maine, the Chairman of his parish finance council, and a lector at Sacred Heart Church in Auburn. When not practicing law or learning a new technological tool to integrate into the practice, Michael is usually skiing or thinking about skiing with his wife and kids.

Originally from Medway, Massachusetts and a proud alumnus of Xaverian Bros. High School, Michael is an honors graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont and Suffolk University Law School. He has studied at the Université de Paris -III, Sorbonne Nouvelle and the Institut Catholique in Paris, France, and received NCAA All-America Honors in swimming. He is admitted to practice in Maine and Massachusetts.
