MIAMI, Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli has expanded its footprint in the southeastern region of the country with the opening of its 22nd office in Miami. The new office and its associated attorneys strengthen Polsinelli's market position both in the geographic area and in key industry verticals.
Polsinelli's Miami office includes five new shareholders and one associate: James D. Barnett, Michael P. Gennett, Marisa Rodriguez Wilson, Milton A. Vescovacci, J. Everett Wilson and Brian Seidenberg. The group brings deep experience in a range of practice areas, including middle market corporate, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, health care, real estate and financial services.
"We're pleased to announce our expansion in Miami," said Polsinelli Chairman and CEO Chase Simmons. "We've been doing business there for years and our firm's focus on health care, financial services, real estate and midmarket corporate work has been well received in the Miami market. The time to commit to Miami and the State of Florida is right, and we look forward to adding these talented lawyers to our client service offering."
The Polsinelli Miami office is located downtown in the Miami Center high-rise, 201 S. Biscayne Avenue, just blocks from the Biscayne Bay waterfront. The new Miami group includes:
"I am confident in this team that Polsinelli has strategically assembled to launch the office in our hometown of Miami," said Vescovacci. "We look forward to working together and furthering Polsinelli's recognition and client-service focus in the Miami market for years to come."
While Polsinelli's physical presence is new in Miami, the firm's current business in the area has become increasingly important. Demand continues to rise, creating the need for a physical presence and opportunity for further growth. Additionally, the firm's focus areas align with those of the new group of attorneys, particularly in health care, real estate, finance and corporate and transactional services.
"We feel that Polsinelli's national platform and deep health care bench with over 100 health care lawyers will benefit our health care clients in Miami and around the country," said Wilson. "Our clients will be able to tap deep cross disciplinary teams to execute on their strategic plans as health care continues to change at a staggering pace."
Polsinelli's newest location increases the firm's momentum in coast-to-coast expansion. In May, the firm expanded its West Coast presence with eight attorneys and a Seattle office location to better serve regional clients in health care, technology and government investigations services.
In his first year as CEO and Chairman, this marks the first office expansion for Simmons, who assumed the new role on Jan. 1.
Polsinelli is an Am Law 100 firm with more than 850 attorneys in 22 offices. Ranked #30 for Client Service Excellence1 and #10 for best client relationships2 among 650 U.S. law firms, Polsinelli was also named among the top 30 best-known firms in the nation3. The firm's attorneys provide value through practical legal counsel infused with business insight, and focus on health care, financial services, real estate, intellectual property, mid-market corporate, labor and employment, and business litigation.
