EmergeLaw Opens Offices in Orlando and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
EmergeLaw is pleased to announce the opening of offices in Orlando and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. In connection with the new offices, veteran Orlando insolvency attorney Bill Porter has become a partner with the firm.
EmergeLaw senior partner Elliott Jones said of the new offices, “Florida is a vibrant market that has experienced tremendous growth since the end of the Great Recession. Many of our firm’s clients and referral sources have operations in Florida, particularly central and north Florida, so it made a lot of sense for us to be there too. Some people assume that there isn’t much need for restructuring attorneys in a growing economy, but the free market is extremely competitive and that means there are always companies that need our particular toolkit. Lenders also tend to loosen borrowing standards in boom times and that inevitably leads to more debt restructurings.”
From offices in Tennessee and Florida, EmergeLaw’s experienced attorneys represent debtors, committees, creditors, investors and other parties in out-of-court workouts and Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases throughout the Southeast.
