A Fort Lauderdale law firm has chosen Coral Gables for its first permanent Miami-Dade office.
Kopelowitz Ostrow Ferguson Weiselberg Gilbert signed a 5,000-square-foot lease at 2800 Ponce de Leon Blvd., a Class A office building anchored by Regions Bank. The firm will join others operating in the 28-story Regions Bank Tower, including Wicker Smith O’Hara McCoy & Ford and Breier Seif Silverman & Schermer.
The new location will be managed by veteran Miami lawyer Robert “Bobby” Gilbert, who became a name partner after joining the firm last fall. Gilbert left Grossman Roth to oversee and expand Kopelowitz Ostrow’s complex litigation and class action practice.
“By opening our office in Coral Gables, we’ll be able to continue building our team and providing the full range of services to our clients and co-counsel across South Florida,” he said in a statement.
The office will be home to eight of the firm’s 45 or so attorneys come August.
Carol Brooks, president of Coral Gables-based CREC, represented the firm in the lease transaction. No other details were released.
