Ft. Lauderdale, Florida – Celebrating over 40 years in practice, the law firm of Colodny, Fass, Talenfeld, Karlinsky, Abate & Webb will streamline its name to “Colodny Fass,” effective October 31, 2014, Managing Partner Mike Colodny announced. The Firm’s Internet address will be www.ColodnyFass.com as of that date.
The move comes as Colodny Fass expands in size, reflecting the integral role it has played in its clients’ many business expansions throughout Florida and the United States.
Colodny Fass will continue to focus on its fundamental practice areas of regulation and compliance, administrative law, governmental relations and complex commercial litigation. Managing Litigation Shareholder Maria Elena Abate continues to lead the Firm’s Insurance Litigation, Appellate Practice and Employment Law division.
“Our Firm has expanded to meet our clients’ increased needs,” Mr. Colodny explained. “Providing responsive and personal service as a boutique practice will always be our cornerstone philosophy as we continue to grow.”
Recently, several prominent lawyers and former insurance regulators have joined the Firm, including Wes Strickland, a nationally known attorney who will lead Colodny Fass' hallmark Insurance Regulatory and Compliance practice from its Tallahassee office. National insurance authority G. Donovan Brown will also join Colodny Fass in December 2014 after serving as Senior Governmental Counsel for the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America. They will team with former Florida Chief Financial Officer and Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher and Claude Mueller, the former Florida Office of Insurance Regulation Director of Property and Casualty.
“Importantly, the name change is a direct recognition of our valued clients, who have essentially been calling us ‘Colodny Fass’ for some time now,” Firm co-founder Joel Fass added. “We’ve are excited to present this streamlined new name that will proudly carry us into the future.”
