Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – November 29, 2011 – Ruden McClosky announces that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida has approved the sale of its assets to the Greenspoon Marder law firm. As approved, the sale will result in combined operations totaling approximately 140 attorneys and 400 staff members located in 10 offices throughout the state.
The transaction positions Greenspoon Marder as one of Florida’s largest full-service law firms and provides Greenspoon Marder with greater access to new Florida markets where Ruden McClosky currently maintains a presence, including Miami, Naples and Port St. Lucie. Additionally, the deal bolsters the Greenspoon Marder brand in Fort Lauderdale, where both firms have enjoyed a longstanding history. Currently, Greenspoon Marder also has offices in Aventura, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Stuart and Orlando.
