Hoffman, Mel Greenberg, and Robert H. Traurig. The founding partners were Jewish and modeled their firm after Jewish-run transactional practices in New York City, during a time when it was difficult for Jews to fit in at "white shoe firms." Traurig became well known for real estate development work in the Miami area, and the firm focused on hiring Jewish and Hispanic attorneys for much of its early history. Until the early 1990s, Greenberg was exclusively a South Florida law firm. In the 1970s, Greenberg, Traurig and Hoffman became Greenberg, Traurig, Hoffman, Lipoff, and Quentel with the addition of attorneys Norman H. Lipoff and Albert D. Quentel as named shareholders. Former Florida governor Reubin Askew was a named shareholder in the early 1980s while he also sought the Democratic nomination for president.
