Taylor English Adds Resort, Hotel & Hospitality Practice And Opens Savannah Office
Atlanta – May 20, 2011 Taylor English Duma LLP announces the arrival of new lawyers, the addition of a Resort, Hotel & Hospitality Practice Group, and the opening of a Savannah, GA office.
On June 1, 2011, twelve attorneys, including all the members of a highly respected Resort, Hotel & Hospitality Practice Group, join Taylor English Duma LLP from Weinstock & Scavo, P.C. Consisting of five partners and seven associates, this group is nationally recognized for their expertise with representing clients in the resort, hotel, hospitality, and travel industry. According to Partner James J. Scavo, “this group will immediately establish Taylor English as an industry service leader and further strengthen its corporate finance and real estate practice areas.”
The new additions will be primarily located in Atlanta, GA; however, contemporaneous with these additions, Taylor English will open an office in Savannah, GA that is intended to facilitate its servicing of existing Taylor English clients as well as clients represented by the firm’s new attorneys.
Transitioning partner Anthony Polvino says the group’s decision to join Taylor English was based on the firm’s “value oriented operating model and client focused culture” as well as “the quality and reputation of the lawyers the firm has attracted over the past six years.” Taylor English was founded in 2005 and purpose-built to deliver superior service by focusing on greater efficiency, flexibility and entrepreneurship.
”After carefully considering a variety of options,” Polvino stated, “we collectively decided that Taylor English offered an exceptional platform and the additional legal capabilities that allowed our unique national practice to best provide our clients the highest quality and best value of legal service.“
Taylor English managing partner Al Hill describes the addition as “a unique opportunity to bring in an experienced group of accomplished lawyers. The new team gives Taylor English a deeper breadth of coverage in several practice areas, and it allows us to expand our service to the Savannah region. We are looking forward to working with attorneys we’ve known and respected for several years.”
