Tampa, FL – December 7, 2012 – Barnett, Bolt, Kirkwood, Long & McBride Attorneys at Law has announced attorney Gordon J. Schiff of the Schiff Law Group has joined their Tampa law firm.
Schiff’s expertise adds practice capabilities in land development, land use and eminent domain law to the firm’s established practices in tax, estate planning, mergers and acquisitions, and business and real estate litigation.
“There are natural synergies between Gordon’s legal prominence in the areas of real estate development and land use law and our established practice areas,” said Charles A. Carlson, managing partner of the firm.
Having worked with Barnett Bolt attorneys on a number of cases over the years, Schiff said, “I have joined the premier business law firm in Tampa.”
During his 27 years of legal practice, Schiff has represented prominent national and local developers, governments and public agencies, and individual landowners. “Running my own firm since 2005 has been a great experience, but working together with the excellent Barnett Bolt team of lawyers is even better,” he said.
Formed in 1975 as a boutique tax law firm, Barnett, Bolt, Kirkwood, Long & McBride has steadily expanded the scope of its legal representation over the years, and with Schiff includes a seasoned legal team of 23 attorneys offering a range of expertise regarding business law, tax law, real estate law, litigation, trusts and estates, and land use.
The addition of Schiff is the most recent example of the law firm’s commitment to continued excellence and expansion. “While we already represent many prominent land owners and land developers in Central Southwest Florida, we now will expand our reach and are able to provide those valued clients the same high level of representation with their land use, zoning and other land development issues,” Carlson said.
