Holland & Knight Snags 2 Lawyers to Serve Atlanta's Growing Payments Sector
Holland & Knight recently added corporate attorneys Roth Kehoe and Robert Green to its Atlanta office. The lawyers represent electronic payments processing companies, one of Atlanta's biggest but most invisible industries.
"We're very excited about the growth in the payments and transaction processing space. It's an Atlanta-based industry and we hope it will continue to be important for Georgia," Mr. Kehoe said.
Atlanta Executive Partner Allen Maines says the firm wants to build up its corporate practice locally.
"We need a more robust M&A practice to support our clients and these are guys with great vision and insight," Mr. Maines said. Holland & Knight likes their focus on the fast-evolving payments industry, Mr. Maines added, calling it a "fine example of a practice area peculiar to Atlanta."
