M&A at Holland & Knight Primed for Growth as Firm Adds Lateral Partner
Partner and leader of the firm's Corporate, M&A and Securities Practice Group David Barkus spoke with the Daily Business Review about the addition of Partner Jordan Schneider to the M&A team in Miami. Mr. Barkus anticipates further growth in the M&A practice in 2021 along with a bullish market.
“We still have extremely cheap financing, and there’s plenty available at really low rates. From our perspective and what we’ve heard from clients, we’re expecting a very strong 2021,” Mr. Barkus said. With regards to the addition of Mr. Schneider, he said, "part of our natural progression is that we need to continue to add talent to keep pace with the clients we’re adding. Jordan was a known commodity to us. He’s a star. Sometimes when you hire a lateral you don’t know what you’re getting. In Jordan’s case, we knew exactly what we were getting.”
