Leadership

A Message from William Dymond, Jr.
CEO &
President

From 30,000 feet, the view of Central Florida is striking: a strong, well-connected, prosperous region that continues to grow. Look a little closer and you’ll see residential and commercial construction, infrastructure improvements, significant road, rail and air transportation enhancements, dynamic high-tech and medical industry sectors, and fast-growing sports, entertainment, hospitality and tourism economies. We are fortunate to represent many of the largest companies in Central Florida, both privately and publicly held, as well as a number of middle market businesses that are driving growth in our region.

This growth and diverse prosperity of our region has driven changes in our clients’ businesses and in our services to clients as well. In just the past year, we added attorneys and offices in Gainesville (Alachua County), Melbourne (Brevard County) and Mount Dora (Lake County). We are working closely with the next generation innovators involved in “incubator” programs at the University of Central Florida, the University of Florida, and Florida Institute of Technology, assisting with entity formation, capital-raising and the protection of their intellectual property. At the other end of the spectrum, the senior housing market continues to be robust as our clients invest in and develop properties to accommodate the aging population. Our hotel, resort and restaurant clients are busy around the country, and clients in the real estate market are enjoying growth once again. Take a look at some of these companies here; we are proud to showcase their businesses and their leadership.

Many of the industries in which our clients are involved – banking, construction, franchising, hotels, manufacturing, restaurants, retail, sports, and technology – cross state and national borders. As a founding member of Meritas, an international network of more than 170 full-service law firms with over 7,000 lawyers in 60+ countries, we are able to assist our clients virtually around the globe.

Local Roots. Broad Reach.SM This truly describes our service to clients and their goals for the past 45 years. I encourage you to browse our website and come back often, as we are continually posting new information, not just about our attorneys and areas in which we practice, but also about legal and business issues that may impact you. Let me know how we can help you. My direct dial is (407) 418-6342.

Warm regards,
Bill
