Kenleigh A. Nicoletta


Kenleigh focuses her practice in the areas of estate planning, corporate law (with a particular focus on family owned business formation and succession), and tax-exempt organizations.

She works together with individuals, families and business owners to develop comprehensive estate and business succession plans appropriate for each client’s specific situation and needs, while providing advice on matters related to minimizing income, estate and gift taxes, as well as life insurance, long-term care, and special needs planning.

Kenleigh provides a wide range of advice on corporate formations and entity selection, ownership issues, corporate governance, and business transactions, including related state and federal income tax issues. In addition, she assists nonprofit organizations, including both public charities and private foundations, in qualifying for tax–exempt status with the IRS, as well as with their continuing tax and corporate compliance. Kenleigh also represents fiduciaries and beneficiaries in probate proceedings involving trust and estate administration, guardianships and conservatorships, and trust reformations.

Kenleigh grew up in Fryeburg and continues to have many ties to the area. She is an avid downhill skier and marathon runner.
