Four Kluger Peretz Partners Fly To…..Akerman?

It’s old news now to read of departures at Kluger & [partner to be named later], but to hear of four high-level lawyers heading to Akerman — which has had its own shakeups recently — is a fresh twist:

Akerman Senterfitt today announced the continued expansion of its Litigation and Bankruptcy practices, as Dee Dee Fischer, Andrew Gold, Jason Oletsky and Brett Marks have joined the firm as shareholders in the Fort Lauderdale office. Ms. Fischer, Mr. Gold and Mr. Oletsky bring extensive trial experience in complex commercial litigation for private equity firms on a national level. Mr. Marks is a seasoned attorney with deep involvement in bankruptcy, creditors’ rights and workouts. All four were most recently partners at Kluger Peretz Kaplan & Berlin. And in the last few months, Akerman has added more than 30 new attorneys in Corporate, Litigation, Bankruptcy, Healthcare, Governmental Affairs and Public Policy as well as other practice areas.

First of all, congrats to this top-notch team and to Akerman for landing them.But to our many Akerman insider readers, are things really as rosy as their PR department claims?

Boy they can do just about anything with numbers nowadays.
