Miami-headquartered Greenberg Traurig LLP (also Greenberg Traurig, PA) popularly known as GT, is an international, full-service law firm having strength in real estate, litigation, corporate, and entertainment practices. It has close to 1800 attorneys serving through 35 offices located in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The team of lawyers provides counseling to its national and international clients on federal and state laws relating to regulatory compliance and litigation. GT stood tall amid the global economic downturn, and in 2010 the firm had a record year with its gross revenues climbing by 5% to over $1.2 billion. What industry insiders say about the firm is that it has a 'less bureaucratic,' 'less formal' atmosphere than many peer firms. However, there is a word of caution linked to it as many praise GT's 'entrepreneurial' and 'flexible' environment as good for 'self-motivated' associates, others see a cost attached to it with too much responsibility, with partners allowing associates to 'do anything, all by themselves, without regard to potential' consequences. But, GT still remains one among few law firms in the U.S. providing an attractive career path in the field of law with its diverse work culture and challenging environment. A statement of support by the company shows its commitment beyond the commercial interests. "GT is the first major law firm in the United States to adopt a statement in support of tribal sovereignty in its relationships with Indian tribes and nations. This statement outlines our dedication to the integrity of Native American and indigenous peoples and reflects the unique GT culture that helps set our firm apart." Today the firm is managed by notable names in the legal arena, Chief Executive Officer, Richard A. Rosenbaum; Executive Chairman, Cesar L. Alvarez; its President, Matthew Gorson; and its Chairman and Founder, Larry J. Hoffman. GT had initially had only one associate and one junior partner, and what's more, the firm had no plans of expanding outside the Miami metropolitan area. Founded in 1967 by Lawrence Hoffman, Mel Greenberg and Robert Traurig, GT today has strategic alliances at Milan and Rome. It was not before 1970 when attorneys Norman H. Lipoff and Albert D. Quentel joined with Greenberg, Traurig and Hoffman and also Former Florida governor Reubin Askew was a named partner in the early 1980s while he also sought the Democratic nomination for president. In 1991, GT began to expand nationwide, beginning with the opening of an office in New York City. The growth never took a halt for GT since then. In July 2009, it entered the London market, forming a new UK firm, operating as Greenberg Traurig Maher LLP. The firm now commands a good presence in some of the advanced countries.
