Holland & Knight Continues Growth in Atlanta with Corporate Attorneys Roth Kehoe and Robert Green
ATLANTA (April 29, 2015) – Holland & Knight is pleased to announce that corporate attorneys Roth Kehoe and Robert Green have joined the firm's Atlanta office as partner and senior counsel, respectively. They formerly practiced with Hunton & Williams.
"Growing the corporate practice in Atlanta is one of our top goals," said Allen Maines, executive partner of Holland & Knight's Atlanta office. "Our recent additions of Terry Davis and Mark Lange jump-started the process, and now we are fortunate to have Roth and Robert strengthening the group even further."
Mr. Kehoe represents clients in the areas of international and domestic public and private mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, investments, strategic transactions, infrastructure transactions and public-private partnerships. His transactions have involved companies from a diverse range of industries including biotechnology, payment processing and merchant acquisition, molecular biology, energy, finance and financial transactions, and healthcare.
Mr. Green's practice focuses on transaction processing and assisting payment processing and other financial services companies. He provides legal and technology counsel regarding compliance, processing, data, new product development, joint ventures, partnerships, outsourcing, information technology and global expansion.
In 2014, Messrs. Kehoe and Green helped launch the American Transaction Processors Coalition, a group that represents the more than 70 Georgia-based companies that develop products and provide resources supporting the financial service industry's technology needs.
"The hiring of Roth and Robert gives us the opportunity to be at the forefront of an expanding practice area," said James McDermott, leader of Holland & Knight's Business Section. "Representing the transaction processing industry adds a new facet to our national financial services portfolio. As the volume of non-cash transactions continues to increase, industrial and regulatory demands will require sophisticated legal services in many areas where our firm excels, such as data privacy, government affairs and intellectual property.
"Our move to Holland & Knight will add significant value to our practices," said Mr. Kehoe. "We appreciate the industry-based approach the firm takes and we're impressed by the depth of resources it offers its financial services clients. We also see a unique opportunity to partner with its data privacy practice, which should complement our services to payment processors very nicely."
