TAMPA, FL – Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, a National Law Journal Top 250 law firm, is pleased to announce the 25th anniversary of its Tampa, Florida office.
The firm, which was founded in 1925, opened its Tampa office in January 1985, with two lawyers: Bruce Gordon and John Inglis. Both Mr. Gordon and Mr. Inglis continue to be partners in the Tampa office.
The Tampa office has attracted many talented attorneys with diverse practices and a broad base of clients and has grown into a full service office with 60 attorneys occupying three floors of the Bank of America building in downtown Tampa.
The success of the Tampa office led to the opening of other Shumaker offices in Ohio, North Carolina and, in August 2009, Sarasota, Florida. The firm now has 90 attorneys on the Gulf Coast of Florida and 215 attorneys firm-wide.
“We are proud of our growth,” said Ernie Marquart, Managing Partner of the Tampa office. “It has never been growth for growth’s sake but the result of an unwavering commitment to the needs of our clients and the hard work of our attorneys and staff. We look forward to serving our clients in the Tampa Bay area, throughout Florida and around the country long into the future.”
