Prominent Lobbyist and Litigator George Meros Joins Holland & Knight

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (January 3, 2018) – Prominent litigation attorney and lobbyist George Meros has joined Holland & Knight’s Tallahassee office as a partner. He was formerly a shareholder at GrayRobinson.

For more than 30 years, Mr. Meros has assisted public and private clients in navigating the intersection of politics, regulation and litigation. For example, he acted as lead counsel for the Florida House of Representatives as it developed, defended and litigated Florida's new redistricting plan.

Mr. Meros represents private clients regarding regulatory compliance, complex civil litigation and government affairs. His clients include Fortune 500 companies, national business associations, state and national health care companies, educational institutions and local governments.

“George has an incredible reputation throughout the state of Florida,” said Larry Hamilton, leader of the firm’s North Florida Litigation Group. “He’s entrusted by clients to handle their most complex, “bet-the-company” cases and has also worked on some of the most important cases affecting the government and public policy, which makes him a great fit for Holland & Knight.”

“George is one of the most respected and well-connected lawyers in Tallahassee and throughout the state,” said Karen Walker, executive partner of Holland & Knight’s Tallahassee office. “His arrival allows us to expand our litigation and Florida government advocacy capabilities, particularly with respect to high-profile matters involving the government.”

“Holland & Knight is a powerhouse firm with attorneys who are doing incredible work on big issues that affect the state,” said Mr. Meros. “I look forward to teaming up with them to produce the best possible results for our clients.”

Mr. Meros is consistently recognized as a leading attorney in his field by The Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers. He earned a J.D. degree from the University of Virginia School of Law and a B.A. from Eckerd College. After law school he clerked for Justice Alan Sundberg of the Florida Supreme Court.
