TAMPA, FL, February 11, 2015—MillerBlowers, Inc., a legal recruiting firm that assists clients across the country with strategic growth, announced today that it served as a consultant in Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP’s successful entrance into the Florida market through its acquisition of 12 attorneys from Glenn Rasmussen, P.A.
Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, an Am Law 200 law firm with offices across the Southeastern United States, retained MillerBlowers to help the firm expand into Florida by providing guidance on the local legal market and identifying candidate firms that shared a common culture and vision. Glenn Rasmussen, long considered one of Tampa Bay’s premier business law firms, had a working relationship with MillerBlowers that extended back over two decades.
Recognizing that both firms shared core values, including practice excellence and a reputation for high-quality client service, MillerBlowers introduced them and assisted through the acquisition process, from due diligence to high-level meetings and negotiations. Tampa is Bradley Arant Boult Cummings’ eighth office, adding to its existing locations in Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and the District of Columbia. Bradley Arant Boult Cummings is one of the largest law firms in the Southeast and has more than 470 attorneys.
Glenn Rasmussen was founded in 1983 by Robert B. Glenn, Robert C. Rasmussen, Steven D. Merryday, and Michael A. Fogarty, all attorneys who had been partners at Holland & Knight LLP. Glenn Rasmussen was a local leader in practice areas including banking and insolvency, commercial litigation, corporate finance, labor and employment, real estate, and commercial transactions. Merryday is currently a judge of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
“Florida has been a strategic priority of ours for some time and MillerBlowers was instrumental in helping us achieve our goal of expanding into that market,” said Beau Grenier, Chairman of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings. “They knew the market and they helped us identify a firm with shared vision and values in Glenn Rasmussen.”
