Thirty-Four Holland & Knight Attorneys Named Florida Trend's Legal Elite

Holland & Knight has more honorees than any other law firm
MIAMI (June 22, 2017) Holland & Knight is pleased to announce that 34 of the firm's attorneys have been named to Florida Trend magazine's 2017 Legal Elite list. The firm has more Legal Elite honorees than any other law firm in the state.

The Florida Legal Elite are the top lawyers practicing in Florida, according to the results of the magazine's statewide attorney surveys, and represent fewer than 1.5 percent of Florida Bar members.

This year, 11 Holland & Knight attorneys were included in Florida Trend's Legal Elite Hall of Fame, which was created to honor those who have been Legal Elite winners for several years. Additionally, Florida Bar members were asked to recommend three best "up and coming" attorneys who exhibit leadership in the law and in their local communities. An attorney must have practiced law for less than 10 years or be less than 40 years of age to be eligible. Five Holland & Knight attorneys earned this distinction.
