    Biography


    Jonathan P. Bench advises for-profit and nonprofit clients throughout the entire business life cycle: entity formation, venture capital and business financing, securities offerings, leasing, corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions. His clients represent businesses from many sectors, including finance, construction, energy, hospitality, healthcare, retail, tourism, agriculture, aerospace, securities and technology. He is particularly interested in international trade with a focus on China.

    Recently, Jonathan’s transactions included:

    • Trade contract negotiations in Guangzhou, China with Maine biomass and logging exporter and Chinese importer;
    • Acquisition of aviation company, including transfer of Federal Aviation Administration Air Carrier Certificate; and
    • Private securities offerings involving accredited investors in Maine, Pennsylvania, California and New York.

    As a former small business owner with an entrepreneurial brain, Jonathan brings a well-grounded personal perspective to conversations with business clients, recognizing the need for certainty, fluidity and timeliness in innovative managerial decision making. He enjoys acting as both legal advisor and business consultant for his business clients. Jonathan has represented numerous Maine-based nonprofit entities with incorporation, board governance and dissolution, including assisting with filing Form 1023 and 1023-EZ to obtain recognition as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code.

    Jonathan is a founding member of the Maine China Network, a Bangor-based group focused on enhancing business relationships between China and Maine. He is fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese and also reads and writes Chinese (to read his Chinese biography, see below).
