Alana Roberts reports:
At least six transactional attorneys have left Miami-based Kluger Peretz Kaplan & Berlin, and sources say two of the firm’s name partners may leave after a 22-year association as the firm reorganizes to focus on litigation.
Five transactional attorneys have left the firm, and one will leave the firm — known for its litigation and bankruptcy work — next week.
Meanwhile, sources say intellectual property co-chair Steven Peretz and bankruptcy co-chair Howard Berlin are planning to leave. Founding partner Alan Kluger declined to comment about their possible departures.
Calls to Peretz and Berlin were not returned.
I got a kick out of this comment:
“I’m building a national trial firm,” Kluger said.
Ok, but Alan, have you seen how national firms are performing nowadays?
