There's a new law firm in Tampa.Quarles & Brady
, a national firm based in Milwaukee, is seeking qualified attorneys for its new law office in downtown Tampa. The firm has offices in several cities including Chicago, Madison, WI
Kimberly Leach Johnson, managing partner of the Tampa office, explains why the 118-year-old firm decided to open an office here. "Though we are a Midwest firm, we had many clients in Tampa who we couldn't service because we weren't here," Johnson says.
Since Quarles & Brady opened in Tampa, 11 attorneys have been hired, with plans to add an additional nine. "We are looking for attorneys in fields such as real estate, healthcare and IP (intellectual property)," Johnson says. "We need attorneys who can help our clients in Tampa, and help our clients nationwide."
Quarles & Brady has also set up a program to give back to the community. "We have a program called 'Quarles Care' at our firm," Johnson says. "At our open house in Tampa, we displayed a poster that all attendees were encouraged to sign. For every person who signed their name, we gave $10 to three different charities. "We gave to a homeless shelter, the Blossom School for the Deaf, and to the Florida Aquarium for its children's educational programs."
The Tampa office is in the Bank of America building at 101 E. Kennedy Blvd., Suite 3400.
