MIAMI – March 5, 2019 – Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney has moved the firm’s Miami office to One Biscayne Tower. The move to an iconic downtown Miami building is part of the firm’s plan to significantly grow the office across a number of industries and areas. Buchanan will occupy 14,000 square feet in the Tower, which is set to undergo $10 million in renovations.
Over the past year, the firm absorbed the immigration firm Weiss, Alden & Polo P.A., including its two named partners, Christine J. Alden and Gina M. Polo, and welcomed Robert Kohlman as well as several associates.
The Miami office is led by first-generation Cuban American Jennifer Olmedo-Rodriguez, who is one of Buchanan’s six female office heads. The office boasts a diverse group of multi-lingual lawyers who offer a wide-variety of services, including litigation, healthcare, real estate, immigration, labor and employment, family and matrimonial law, and more.
“We’re thrilled to be in our new office space that perfectly mirrors our city and as well as our attorneys and staff – vibrant, high-energy and diverse. We are well-positioned in the heart of downtown Miami to better service our clients, and we look forward to welcoming our clients, visitors and new laterals into our fresh, new office space,” noted Olmedo-Rodriguez.
The Miami attorneys are connected and deeply rooted in the Miami business and legal community as active participants and partners with the Beacon Council, Cuban American Bar Association (CABA), Florida Bar Foundation, British-American Business Council, American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) South Florida Chapter, Miami-Dade Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (MDFAWL), the Miami-Dade Sports Commission, Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, Florida International University’s President’s Council and many other local and state organizations. The firm also serves as pro bono counsel to Care Resource and several of the shareholders in Miami traveled to Karnes, Tx over the summer to provide pro bono immigration services to asylum seekers being held at the Karnes Detention Center.
