About Greenberg Traurig

Greenberg Traurig (officially Greenberg Traurig, LLP and Greenberg Traurig, PA) is an international law firm founded in Miami, Florida, United States in 1967 by Larry J. Hoffman, Mel Greenberg and Robert Traurig. It has 37 offices in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It is the 3rd largest law firm in the United States with 1,608 attorneys in the US and 1,800 attorneys worldwide. Their largest office is in New York City.[citation needed] In Warsaw, Poland, the firm operates as Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp.k. Additionally, Greenberg Traurig, LLP has a strategic alliance with the independent law firm Studio Santa Maria in Milan and Rome, Italy.[citation needed] Greenberg Traurig is managed by CEO Richard A. Rosenbaum; Co-Chairmen Cesar L. Alvarez and Matthew Gorson; and founding chairman Lawrence J. Hoffman.[citation needed] Greenberg, Traurig and Hoffman was founded in Miami, Florida, in 1967 by attorneys Larry J. 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.[citation needed]
