Our firm is the product of innovative thinking. In 1991, our founders saw a need in the South Florida legal market for a high-end, boutique firm dedicated to a small number of integrated practice areas. More than 28 years later, we continue to outpace sophisticated market players with focused practice groups, teamwork and a zealous commitment to our clients.

We have grown to more than 70 lawyers who look to our Unifying Principles to maintain an ethical and people-focused business model that puts our clients’ needs at the heart of our practice. We are committed to creative problem solving for our clients while maintaining respect for the finest principles of traditional legal practice.

DIVERSITY &
INCLUSION

Diversity and inclusion are not buzzwords for us, but rather a set of principles that we incorporate into our daily work. We created our Diversity and Inclusion Program (“DIP”) to focus on implementing programming within the firm that is designed to foster inclusivity among attorneys and staff and welcomes an open and respectful exchange of values.

Community

We are proud to support programs in education, legal aid and pro bono, the arts, youth, and many other initiatives that are essential to helping our communities thrive. In fact, we have twice been named The Law Firm of the Year as part of LegalAid’s For the Public Good awards.

Careers

Our lawyers and staff are our most valuable resources. They are the key to our success and the reason why we represent some of the most significant entities and individuals in Florida. Knowing their importance, we created our unifying principles, which define our firm’s core values. We’ve consciously created a culture that emphasizes respect and dignity toward one another, our clients, and our opposition.
