ORLANDO, Fla. (July 11, 2014) – Statewide law firm Broad and Cassel today announced it has received recognition as a Florida Powerhouse by Law360 in the publication’s inaugural Top Regional Powerhouses series. The firm is considered an influential leader in the legal field and one of the oldest firms in the state on the list. Specifically, the article honed in on Broad and Cassel’s measured approach to growth.
Law360 profiled firms with a strong regional presence in Florida for the list. Firms were selected based on number of attorneys and offices in the state and significant litigation, wins and transactions from the past two years.
The firm was lauded for its expertise in the transportation and infrastructure, health care, real estate, public finance and business litigation practice areas. In fact, Broad and Cassel has built one of the most recognized health care practice groups – regionally and nationally – boasting more lawyers certified in Health Law by the Florida Bar Board of Legal Specialization & Education than any other firm, and has been given the highest rank by Chambers USA: A Guide to America’s Leading Business Lawyers, a highly regarded legal guide. Several of the firm’s health lawyers are certified by the Health Care Compliance Association in Health Care Compliance and are Certified Dispute Resolvers with the American Health Lawyers Association.
In addition to Law360’s recognition, Broad and Cassel recently saw its attorneys recognized as leaders in their field by Chambers USA and Florida Super Lawyers Magazine. Its four South Florida managing partners were also named Power Leaders by the South Florida Business Journal in May.
