Stitham will succeed Martin Eisenstein, who has led the firm for over 20 years. Eisenstein will remain at the firm as a senior partner and will continue to serve on the management committee. 

For the past year, Stitham and Eisenstein have worked closely to ensure a smooth transition from one generation of leadership to the next, the Lewiston-based firm said. 

“Every successful firm needs a thoughtful succession strategy for a leadership change. Over the past year, Stacy and I have worked closely to ensure a seamless transition, following a plan developed by the late George Isaacson and myself,” said Eisenstein. “Stacy’s extensive background and leadership in both firm management and community board service has prepared her to hit the ground running and continue our legacy of excellence.”

Brann & Isaacson is ranked No. 12 among Maine's largest law firms in the 2024 Mainebiz Book of Lists. At the time, the firm was surveyed, the firm had 20 Maine attorneys. It is based in Lewiston and has a Portland office. 

Stitham brings a wealth of experience in both legal practice and firm management, and is a fifth generation Maine attorney.

She specializes in intellectual property law, litigation and online and multichannel marketing, according to the firm's biography

“Working alongside Marty for the past year has given me invaluable insight into what it takes to lead a firm,” said Stitham. “This is an exciting time to step into leadership as a new generation of attorneys begin to put their mark on Brann & Isaacson.”

In the community, she has served as president of the Maine State Bar Association and its board of governors. She is on the board of the Maine Justice Foundation, is a former board chair of Pine Tree Legal Assistance and has taught business law at Thomas College in Waterville.

Stitham holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and is a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was senior editor of the Harvard Law School Environmental Law Review.
