The Tallahassee office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig P.A.celebrated its 25th anniversary with a reception Jan. 11 at the Governor’s Club just blocks away from the Capitol building. Joining the firm’s Tallahassee lawyers and business staff in attendance were Governor Rick Scott, who gave brief congratulatory remarks, as well as Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, numerous state lawmakers and state agency heads, countless colleagues, clients, family and friends. Founding Chairman Larry J. Hoffman, Senior Chairmen Cesar L. Alvarez and Matthew B. Gorson, and Co-PresidentErnest L. Greer were among the Greenberg Traurig leadership in town to mark the momentous occasion.
On Dec. 31, 1991, the attorneys of the Tallahassee law firm of Roberts, Baggett, LaFace & Richard, then a 14-lawyer firm that held a prominent position in the landscape of Florida government and politics, joined the Miami-based firm of Greenberg Traurig. The first full day of operation for Greenberg Traurig’s Tallahassee office was Jan. 3, 1992. This move marked Greenberg Traurig’s first major venture outside of South Florida.
Today, the Tallahassee office has grown to include a diverse and powerful team of lawyers, government relations professionals and business staff. Located just one block from the state’s Capitol building, and three blocks from Florida’s Supreme Court, Greenberg Traurig’s Tallahassee office offers clients an immediate physical and political link to the heart of the nation’s third largest state.
