Miami, FL – September 13, 2004 LAWFUEL – Best for attorney news, law firms, legal news, legal research Adorno & Yoss, headquartered in Miami and the nation’s largest, certified minority-owned law firm with 185 attorneys, announced today that it has added an office in New York City as a result of its combination with Bryant Law Group, P.C. (BLG), an African American-owned, corporate law firm located in the Wall Street financial district. Seth Bryant, the founder of BLG, will head the office which will initially be comprised of 7 attorneys. Although currently focused on corporate and intellectual property transactional matters, the office is expected to grow into a larger, full-service office.
This is the first New York office for the Firm, which currently has offices in Florida , California and Georgia . “Having a strong presence in New York has been a key priority of the Firm’s for a long time,” said Hank Adorno, President of Adorno & Yoss. “We have been waiting for the right time to expand into this market—and this is it. Bryant Law Group’s talented team of transactional lawyers gives us a strong anchor to grow our New York practice. Seth Bryant and his team are great lawyers, with deep experience and contacts in the New York business and legal market. We expect the New York office to be a fantastic addition to the Firm.”
Over the next year, the firm expects to expand the office to include additional attorneys and a broader range of services.
The New York office is part of Adorno & Yoss’ plan to increase its national footprint to respond to existing clients’ needs. It will also serve as one of Adorno & Yoss’ regional offices – full service offices overseeing the work and client relations over an entire region. Other regional offices include the existing Miami ( Florida and International), Los Angeles , CA (West Coast) and Atlanta (Southeast) offices, as well as planned Chicago ( Midwest ) and Washington DC (Mid Atlantic and Federal Practice).
“Adorno is one of the fastest growing firms in the country,” commented Seth Bryant, founding member of the New York firm and Partner-in-Charge of the new office. “Our local knowledge of the market coupled with Adorno & Yoss’ capabilities and national scope will undoubtedly be a strong combination.”
