-- Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP is pleased to announce that legal publication Law360
has recognized the firm as one of Florida's powerhouse law firms in the publication's inaugural Regional Powerhouses series. Bilzin Sumberg was selected for its reputation as the go-to counsel of choice for business and community leaders in Florida.
Bilzin Sumberg is the youngest firm included on the shortlist, praised for its strategic decision to house all firm attorneys in its Miami office, and recognized for its prominence and deep roots in the community. The firm started in 1998 with the objective of becoming a preeminent regional firm with top talent, servicing clients across Florida's largest industries. The firm works on some of the most complex litigation cases in the country and many of the major real estate deals and development projects in the state.
"The firm has been competing with large national law firms here and elsewhere for representation and client involvement, which I think speaks to the level of lawyering,” said Scott Baena, Chair of the firm's Business Finance and Restructuring practice group.
Having our attorneys in a single office means the firm can pull together a multidisciplinary team easily with lawyers who already work together under one roof and know each other well. Additionally, the firm's strong relationships in the region are an advantage to local clients.
“Our roots here are very deep,” said John C. Sumberg, managing partner of the firm. “We are enmeshed in the community at all levels. We have a presence and a prominence in our community that we think is a big advantage.”
