Holland & Knight's New Atlanta Leader Shares Growth Aspirations
In an interview with Law.com, newly appointed Atlanta Executive Partner Woody Vaughan shares his vision for the office as he takes on the role.
"Holland & Knight has been under the radar and a secret in Atlanta—and we don’t think we need to be a secret anymore," said Mr. Vaughan. "We have grown significantly, diversified our practice areas and earned multiple new clients."
"The Atlanta office’s growth is a reflection of Holland & Knight’s increasing competitiveness at the national level, where we have experienced significant increases in revenue and profits each year for an entire decade."
Mr. Vaughan discusses firm culture and the Atlanta office's ability to recruit partners and other laterals from big firms in the city.
"It’s a great place to work and very fair from a compensation perspective. For lawyers in Atlanta, those are things that are near and dear to a lot of our hearts," said Mr. Vaughan. "We know what we really loved about our old firms and what, maybe, we didn’t like. We’re trying to take those best practices and create a very collegial work environment of very high-energy performers."
