Holland & Knight: New Look, New View
Atlanta Executive Partner Allen Maines sat down with Attorney At Law Magazine to discuss the office's recent growth and new lateral hires. To accommodate the expansion, Holland & Knight's 45-attorney office has relocated to offices on two floors of the Regions Plaza building at 1180 West Peachtree Street in midtown.
"I feel like one of the Blues Brothers, and I have the lucky job of getting the band back together," says Mr. Maines of his recruiting successes. "We're assembling a cohesive team of some of the most gifted, prestigious lawyers in Atlanta dedicated to providing advice and expertise at the highest levels to achieve extraordinary results and deliver superior service. We’re a tight-knit group of friends who approach each matter with intensity, thoroughness and creativity, and we enjoy handling cutting edge, complex legal issues dominating today's regulatory agenda and headlines."
Recent key additions to the office include Public Finance Attorneys Woody Vaughan and Allison Dyer, Litigation Attorneys Jordan Stringer and Ethan Cohen, Financial Services Partner Terry Davis, Real Estate Attorneys Jeff Lowe and John Decker, Tax Attorneys Mark Lange and Aly Pirio, and Corporate Lawyer Larry Shackelford. Mr. Maines said the recent hires are a strategic move.
"The firms that are going to do well in the future are those that will assume responsibility for wringing the inefficiencies out of the delivery of legal services, and those who can access their pre-existing expertise in order to price their product. This adds predictability and value for our clients."
