We at Compass Law Group would like to congratulate Winston & Strawn and our friends at Hilton Legal Group on another successful office opening. Winston & Strawn announced on May 22nd that they opened a new office in Miami. Not only did they pull together six attorneys from prominent national firms, they also expect more to join in the near future.

“Miami has attracted significant pools of capital from public and private businesses as well as from high net worth families and individuals,” said Winston Chairman Tom Fitzgerald in the firm's online announcement. “It is a dynamic financial hub, an epicenter of business activity spanning numerous industries, and a critical nexus point for banking and international trade with Latin America and other parts of the world. After careful study of various cities’ legal and business markets, we made a thoughtful, deliberate decision to establish our newest office in Miami.”

As we consult firms on growth around the country, we know the difficulty of breaking into a market like Miami and making this kind of splash. Winston's strategic thinking and determination is a great model for firms wanting to open in similar markets. At Compass Law Group we enjoy helping firms from the start of this process, determining strategic locations and casting vision, to the very end, when the office opens.
