EDITOR’S NOTE

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR As a New Year begins, change is in the air throughout the legal world. Pending revisions to the nation’s tax rates will affect South Florida attorneys’ clients in fields as diverse as trust and estate planning, securities and family law. The IRS’ ongoing drive to close tax loopholes and collect more revenue will continue to impact international banks and their customers with offshore accounts. On a more positive note, the level of real estate transactions and overall business activity is likely to increase in 2013, creating demand for land use, zoning and entitlement work. In healthcare, the rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will create more demand for counseling, transactional and litigation services throughout the region. For all of us at the South Florida Legal Guide, the big news is our next publication – a Spanish-language version coming this spring that will complement this Annual edition, as well as our Midyear and Financial editions. As our family of publications continues to grow, you can rely on our team to continue to provide valuable information for your legal practice and practical tips on the business side. In this issue, we are profiling six of our most Distinguished Attorneys, highlighting their professional careers and contributions to legal, civic and humanitarian organizations. We are also giving you an inside look at five of our Prominent Law Firms, known regionally, nationally and internationally for the high caliber of their services to clients. This issue also features our annual lists of Top Lawyers, Top Law Firms, Top Up & Comers, and Top CPAs and Financial Professionals. We believe you will also benefit from the articles in our Professional Services Forum, which have been written by leading professionals on different aspects of law, finance and business. Finally, we are including in-depth Profiles of a select group of our top professionals. Once again let me thank for our readers and advertisers who support our growing family of publications. We welcome your comments and suggestions, and appreciate your feedback. Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE

BIG DREAMS Many years ago, my brother-in-law was walking down the street in Bogota, Colombia, with his then 7-year-old daughter. At that time, lottery tickets were sold by street vendors. He stopped by one vendor and bought a ticket for that week’s play. His daughter looked at him and asked what that ticket was for. He told her, “This ticket gives me the right to dream for three days.” On Wednesday, November 28, 2012, I decided to buy a ticket or two from my own local vendor. I had a grand plan all laid out in my mind, and was sure that I would be the sole winner in the $580 million Powerball drawing that night. In other words, I had my own ticket to dream. The fact that I am writing these words at this moment will tip you off to the fact that, I did not win the Powerball. It was a fun dream, and I’m sure I’ll play the Florida Lottery or Powerball again sometime in the future. But for now, it’s back to work. After all, for all but a very lucky few, it will not be a lotto ticket, but good old hard work that will continue to make dreams come true. As adults, parents, legal professionals and business executives, we can all do our part to help make dreams come true for our children, our communities and ourselves. We are educators, coaches, mentors and role models, whose daily actions and conduct affect everyone around us. Therefore, we must do our best to guide others in learning how to put values and principles above all else. There’s a good example of the power of role models in this issue of South Florida Legal Guide. Three of our Distinguished Attorneys this year mentioned that one of their inspirations to pursue a career in the legal field was the “Perry Mason” TV series that ran from the late 1950s to the mid ’60s and other similar programs. Those courtroom scenes fired the imagination, but it took hard work, dedication and a supportive family to help make those childhood dreams come true. Today, our country needs that same spirit of inspiration and cooperation. We need to dream big dreams again, rather than fall into petty partisan bickering. This is a great country and we must not let it be hijacked by extremists on either end of the spectrum. It is wrong to take a position based on a rigid agenda or party affiliation rather than what is good for our country. Greatness comes from being able to work together, and offer praise for those who succeed and help for those who struggle. Greatness also comes from teaching children and adults that they need to study and work to achieve their goals. We need to instill that spirit of dedication and commitment to succeed regardless of the obstacles that life throws at us. In other words, we need to rely on ourselves, not a lotto ticket. So let’s start the New Year by dreaming of ways to make this country better for US, not for ME. Jacob Safdeye Publisher & CEO

This disclaimer was preceded by the lofty pronouncement by Florida Bar president Gwynne Young: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A fair and impartial judiciary, free from political or special interest inďŹ&#x201A;uence is the purpose of Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-partisan merit retention elections for appellate judges. The Florida Bar does not believe any political PARTYn$EMOCRATIC 2EPUBLICANOROTHERnSHOULDPARTICIPATEINANY non-partisan election, particularly for judicial positions.â&#x20AC;? Maintaining the integrity and impartiality of Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judges is critical to preserving the principles of democracy on which our country was founded. Non-

partisan merit retention elections were established by the people of Florida to ensure that the rule of law, not popular thought or political view, would be the basis for all judicial decisions. In 1976, Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voters approved a constitutional amendment establishing merit selection and retention elections for its state appellate court judges. This replaced Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prior political system of judicial selection, which led to corruption and scandal in our high courts. Merit selection and retention has served Florida well for more than 40 years and should not be jeopardized by politics. Yet, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t The Florida Barâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to do anything in the form of campaign activities to assist the public in understanding these three justices seems ironic when it is the lawyers of the state who labor in their court on a daily basis, who test the justiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasoning and legal knowledge, and who study their opinions? Equally limiting, a variety of judicial canons and election laws that did, among other restrictions, the following: s,IMITEDTHEIRABILITYTOPOOLCAMPAIGNMONEYANDEVENMAKE joint appearances. s,IMITEDTHEIRCOLLEAGUESONTHE3UPREME#OURTFROM endorsing them. s2EQUESTINGSUPPORTFORHISHERRETENTION This has to stop. As we move forward in good faith to retain meritorious justices, I would propose that the judicial canons be amended to allow joint appearances by the justices or judges up for merit retention and that their fellow justices or judges be permitted to endorse any appellate judge up for merit retention. Further, that these jurists in a merit retention election be permitted to ask for support without directly asking for funds. The Florida Bar should distinguish merit retention elections from classic political elections, which are contested, and allow the Bar to endorse the justice for retention. The fact that we have a mandatory integrated Bar that prevents us from endorsing â&#x20AC;&#x153;candidatesâ&#x20AC;? should not apply in merit retention because the justices are not running against a traditional opponent. The Bar should set up a permanent fund and raise funds to be used as needed on merit retention elections. We need an ongoing source of funding and the Bar as a whole should contribute. If needed, the funds could be used for political advertising for any worthy judge or justice up for retention. There should also be an ongoing education component as well and reminding the public of the need for fair and impartial courts. I hope this blueprint provides you with food for thought.

DISTINGUISHED ATTORNEYS

Lake Lytal, Jr. says most physicians do an excellent job in treating their patients. But when a doctor’s error results in serious injury or death, the state’s judicial system must continue to hold them accountable. “I am convinced that most doctors are caring and compassionate professionals who can learn from their mistakes, says Lytal, a board-certified civil trial lawyer who focuses his practice on medical malpractice cases. “In that regard, I believe plaintiffs’ attorneys are helping to improve the quality of medicine in our community.” For more than four decades, Lytal, 72, has been a leader in Palm Beach County’s legal circles, representing a wide range of clients. He a founding partner of Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, a 19-attorney plaintiff ’s firm in West Palm Beach, and an opponent of tort reform. “The Florida Legislature has whittled away the rights of patients,” he says. “But our state’s justice system must continue to provide some type of compensation for patients and family members who are victims of medical malpractice.”

followed by a law degree from the University of Florida in 1965. After becoming a lawyer, Lytal went to work for a small general practice firm for the spartan salary of $100 a week. “My wife Susan was teaching and making more money than me, and it became apparent that we needed more income for a young family,” he says. In 1968, Lytal joined Howell Kirby Montgomery and D’Aiuto, an insurance defense firm whose legal team included trial attorney Robert Montgomery, A week later, Joe Reiter, another young trial attorney also joined the firm. For the next few years, Lytal, Reiter and Montgomery focused their practices on insurance defense until 1977 when they decided to become plaintiffs’ attorneys. “Bob, Joe and I all felt we would enjoy the practice of law more by helping people who were down on their luck, rather than institutional clients,” Lytal recalls. “We felt that Palm Beach County could use an aggressive plaintiff ’s firm, so we took the risk and went out of our own.” For the next few years, Lytal focused on general tort matters, until he and Reiter left Montgomery in 1985 to open their own firm. “Bob was my mentor in many ways,” Lytal says. “The success I have

LAKE LYTAL, JR. SEEKING JUSTICE IN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES Lytal was one of the first attorneys in the country to be certified as a civil trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is also a past president of the Florida Justice Association and has received that organization’s highest honors, including the Perry Nichols Award in 2000 and the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003. TRADITION OF LEADERSHIP

A native of Palm Beach County, Lytal has deep roots in the region. His grandfather came to West Palm Beach from Louisiana in 1918 at the age of 12 and later owned and managed a furniture store. His father Lake Lytal, Sr. was a lifelong civic leader who was elected to the Palm Beach County Commission in 1941 and served for 32 years. His mother, Ruth, was a longtime area school teacher. “As I was growing up, my parents emphasized the importance of helping others,” says Lytal, who graduated from Palm Beach High School in 1958. At that time, Lytal was planning a career in engineering, and took classes in math and science at Palm Beach Junior College, while doing drafting at a local engineering firm. “I had a wonderful professor at the junior college named Joe Payne, who got into all kinds of arguments with me about politics and government,” Lytal recalls. “Eventually, Joe told me that I should go to law school.” Lytal heeded that advice, and transferred to Florida State University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, 18

enjoyed has been attributable to the training he gave us, not just in litigation, but in building a practice and managing a law office.” Lytal began handling medical malpractice cases, while Reiter took on products liability matters. “I soon found out that there’s a big difference between representing a plaintiff against a corporate giant in a liability case, and taking on a doctor who has delivered the children of the jurors,” he says. “In fact, I think there is no greater challenge for a plaintiff ’s attorney than handling medical malpractice cases.” In a malpractice case, a plaintiff ’s attorney has to dedicate a great deal of time to study the field of medicine while learning the specific facts of the matter. “While it’s easier to do that research now with the Internet, it’s still a learning curve every time,” Lytal says. “You also need to find experts who can teach you the subject, and convince them into going up against the high-powered experts the defense will bring into the case.” To build a successful practice, Lytal says it’s essential for plaintiff ’s attorneys to select the right cases. “Unless you thoroughly understand the issues, it’s easy to be trapped into taking a case that is not meritorious,” he says. “So, you have to build up your own medical knowledge and learn by trial and error.” That’s something Lytal has done extremely well through the years, according to Marci Fuentes Ball, a 16-year plaintiff’s attorney who


DISTINGUISHED ATTORNEYS

joined the firm in 2000. “Lake has taught me so much about how to work up a case and take it all the way to jury verdict,” says Ball. “I have never met someone who has more knowledge about the law, yet still has common sense and ‘street smarts.’ He has come up with novel legal arguments in cases that I would never have even dreamed of making. He can cross examine an expert neurosurgeon about complicated medicine and then go in front of a jury and communicate the information in a way that everyone easily understands.” GOING TO BAT FOR CLIENTS

Reflecting on his long career in South Florida, Lytal says one of the biggest differences is the acceptance of women and minorities into the legal profession – an attitude that didn’t exist back in the 1960s. “Today, we just take those things for granted, but it’s taken a lot of effort to get to that point,” says Lytal, who has endowed a scholarship for African-

American students to attend the University of Florida College of Law. Another big change is the increased acceptance of attorney advertising. “ Today it’s part of the business for plaintiff ’s attorneys,” Lytal says. “It costs a lot of money but it is effective.” When he’s not going to bat for his clients, Lytal plays softball regularly on a senior league in Jupiter. He also enjoys hunting and fishing, and spending time with his wife Susan, their sons Chris and Lake Lytal, III [“Trey”], as well as their spouses and five grandchildren. In fact, Trey Lytal, 41, followed his father into law and has been practicing at the firm for more than a decade. “Not many attorneys have an opportunity to work with their sons, so I consider myself privileged to do so,” Lytal says. “For me, this law firm is an extension of the family. It’s a pleasure to see our younger attorneys grow in their careers, and do excellent work.” 2013

Abigail Watts-FitzGerald believes that strong relationships are the foundation for being a good corporate lawyer. “The better you know your clients and their businesses, the more effective you can be,” says Watts-FitzGerald, a partner at Weiss Serota in Coral Gables. “It’s not like being a litigator, when you focus primarily on the case. One of the things I like about corporate law is that you can build those long-term relationships.” For more than 30 years, Watts-FitzGerald has been helping companies, non-profits and individuals with their transactional legal needs. She’s helped to structure sales, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, along with shareholders and employment agreements. Her work also includes sports and entertainment law, intellectual property matters and distribution and licensing agreements. “I’ve found that building personal connections is important to generating referrals and getting new clients,” says Watts-FitzGerald,

“Instead, I was attracted to corporate law, and that’s been my focus throughout my career.” After deciding to become an attorney, Watts-FitzGerald enrolled at the University of Miami, and became one of the first women editors-in-chief of the law review. During law school, she also met her husband, Thomas Watts-FitzGerald, who was then attending law school while an officer with the U.S. Coast Guard. After earning her degree in 1979, she joined Arnold & Porter, LLP in Washington, DC. In the early 1980s, they moved back to Miami, where WattsFitzGerald joined Steel Hector & Davis. After spending 15 years with Steel Hector, she moved to Hunton & Williams’s Miami office in 1999, and joined Weiss Serota in 2012. Meanwhile, her husband Thomas joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office, where he is now head of the environmental crimes section. Along with their careers, the Watts-FitzGeralds raised three

ABIGAIL WATTS-FITZGERALD BUILDING LASTING RELATIONSHIPS whose extensive contact list dates back to the early 1980s. “I also try to maintain cordial relationships with attorneys on the other side of various matters. While a litigator might want to attack each point of a case, a good corporate attorney strives to reach a middle ground that results in a positive outcome for both parties.” BECOMING AN ATTORNEY

Born in 1952, Watts-FitzGerald grew up in a small town in New Jersey at a time when women were expected to be homemakers rather than professionals. “I had to talk my junior high teachers into letting me take shop rather than home economics,” she says. After graduating from high school, she enrolled at Franklin & Marshall College, a small school that had recently gone coed. “I remember my government 101 professor would never call on any of the women in our class,” she says. “Fortunately, we had blind grading and I remember how surprised he was that I got an A in his course.” In college, Watts-FitzGerald double majored in anthropology and English, while working as a waitress to make ends meet. After graduation, she went to the University of Chicago and earned a master’s degree in English. While in graduate school, she dated a law student and began thinking of changing her career plans. “My father loved watching ‘Perry Mason’ on TV, but I wasn’t thrilled by the idea of standing up in a courtroom as a trial attorney,” she recalls. 20

children, Caitlin, now working at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and fraternal twins Colin and Devin, who just graduated from college. The family enjoys skiing, snorkeling and scuba diving vacations. “It’s always a challenge balancing family and a career, and I hope I’ve done it fairly well,” she says. “I would regularly take work home with me but 90 percent of the time I would make dinner for my kids so we could all sit down together.” HANDLING A WIDE RANGE OF MATTERS

Early in her career, Watts-FitzGerald was exposed to a wide range of corporate matters. “Since Arnold & Porter didn’t have a corporate law department, I had an opportunity to work on cases like the Braniff airline bankruptcy,” she says. “That gave me a good start in terms of issue spotting. I think it’s good for young lawyers to get that general experience, rather than become specialists right away.” Watts-FitzGerald also believes that young attorneys should start cultivating relationships with their peers, beginning in law school. “If you can maintain those contacts through the years, you’ll find that one of two of your classmates will become a corporate counsel, CFO or CEOs,” she says. “I still get calls from my days in Washington from senior executives who tell me, ‘I thought of you and want to give you some legal work.’” Throughout her career, Watts-Fitzgerald has served as an

Eric Poms, chief executive officer for the OBC, praises Watts-Fitzgerald’s personal and legal skills. “Abi is an invaluable sounding board with tremendous institutional knowledge and a real asset to our organization,” he says. “She has a passion for our organization and what we do in the South Florida community. She is very strategic in her thinking and very analytical when asking legal questions.” Watts-FitzGerald has also helped clients from many other sectors of South Florida’s diverse economy. She was lead counsel in the transition of Gulliver Schools, Inc. from a for profit to nonprofit corporation. In representing one affluent client, she arranged for the sale of a luxury yacht loaded with expensive personal possessions to take place on the high seas so that no valued added taxes (VAT) would be due. “We had the captain take a photo of the GPS position, along with the bill of sale, to document that the transaction occurred in international waters,” she says. EXPLORING NEW OPPORTUNITIES

outside general counsel to for profit and non-profit organizations. She has represented the Orange Bowl Committee, Inc. (OBC) for more than 25 years, negotiating Orange Bowl sponsorships and Bowl Championship Series (BCS) agreements. She’s also set up arrangements for media coverage at the nationally televised football games and signed off on entertainers’ contracts. “It’s amazing what some performers specify as requirements in their dressing room,” she says.

Now with her children “out of the nest,” Watts-FitzGerald says the next stage of her career might include doing some part-time teaching, giving law students the benefits of her hard-won experience. She also plans to continue providing strategic advice and hands-on expertise in structuring transactions and agreements. “In business, you have to think about what might go wrong when drawing up the initial documents in order to avoid leaving gaping holes in an agreement,” she says. “In litigation, when the judge makes a ruling, you can close the files and never look at them again. But in corporate law, every closing binder can be a smoking gun in a lawsuit down the road.” Watts-FitzGerald recalls one corporate executive who launched a joint venture with a personal friend and ignored her advice about including a default provision. Seven years later, the company’s new president called her and started chewing her out because the venture was a failure. “I looked back on my files, and found my note that the executive had disregarded my recommendations,” she says. “I immediately faxed that documentation and never heard another word from them. It just goes to show the importance of keeping good records, along with giving good advice.” 2013

Clark J. Cochran, Jr. has taken on some tough opponents during his career, from Eddie “Hacksaw” Jones to Scott Rothstein. He’s defended the City of Fort Lauderdale against almost every imaginable type of lawsuit, learning all the nuances of sovereign immunity in the process. He’s also provided a steadying hand on the wheel, helping to guide Billing, Cochran, Lyles, Mauro & Ramsey, P.A. for the past 35 years. “I really like our varied practice and the stability of our law firm today,” says Cochran, an original member of the Fort Lauderdale firm. “We have been able to withstand the economic storms that have adversely affected some firms and have continued to grow. I really enjoy working with our long-term clients. The fact that they stay with our firm says a great deal about the strength of our team.” Since 1977, Cochran has been defending South Florida municipalities, insurance companies and their insureds against everything from automobile accidents to slip-and-falls to civil rights claims, as well as construction and zoning litigation and appeals. He also defends premises and products liability cases along with insurance coverage disputes, life insurance matters, and bad faith claims.

at Vanderbilt University and his law degree at Florida State University in 1974. “I chose FSU because Tallahassee had a trial court, an appellate court and the Florida Supreme Court,” he says. While in law school, Cochran was hired as a reading clerk for the House of Representatives. “My parents in Coral Gables could see me on TV every night reading the bills on the floor of the House,” he says. After his second year in law school, Cochran took an internship at the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando at a time when there were jury trials for traffic infractions. “I followed one of the prosecutors the first day and watched him try a case from start to finish,” he says. “I thought it was a lot of fun.” The next day, there were too many trials on the docket for the prosecutors to handle, so Cochran was asked to try a case involving an improper lane change. “I won the case and it got me hooked,” he says. During that three-month internship, Cochran tried 12 jury trials by himself, including a felony case, and assisted in a double-murder trial. “By the time I got back to law school that fall, I was the only student who had actually gotten to try a case,” he says. After earning his degree, it was a natural step for Cochran to

CLARK COCHRAN, JR. TAKING ON TOUGH OPPONENTS “With a jury trial, you have to show that you are sympathetic with an injured person, while addressing the real issues in a case,” says Cochran. “In many cases, the injuries may have been a result of the plaintiff ’s own actions. In selecting a jury, you have to try to ensure that the members of the jury will be willing to consider both sides.” In recognition of his trial skills, Cochran was selected by his peers as a charter member of the Broward County Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and selected by Legal Leaders as one of South Florida’s Top Rated Lawyers. He is senior counsel member of the College of Master Advocates and Barristers, and is a member of the Defense Research Institute and the Florida Defense Lawyers Association. In addition to his trial experience, Cochran has built a successful appellate practice, and his cases have resulted in ground-breaking judicial decisions in several areas of the law. “My practice has evolved into a nice blend of trial and appellate work,” says Cochran. “I really enjoy trying cases, but originally was pulled into the appellate field when our opponents appealed judgments we were able to obtain based upon some unusual aspects of the sovereign immunity defenses we raised on behalf of our municipal clients.” LITIGATING AT AN EARLY AGE

Growing up in South Florida, Cochran earned a bachelor’s degree 22

join the State Attorney’s Office in Fort Lauderdale as one of four misdemeanor prosecutors for Broward County. Before long, Cochran was promoted to the felony trial division, where one of his biggest cases involved a million-dollar armed robbery of a jewelry store on Galt Ocean Mile in Fort Lauderdale. The accused robber, Eddie “Hacksaw” Jones, was a notorious escape artist who had broken out of several jails in the past. “His defense was that he and the store owner had collaborated in the heist to collect the insurance money,” Cochran says. “Jones was convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison.” Years later, Jones wrote an autobiography and began writing Hollywood screen plays. Cochran was asked to contribute to a “60 Minutes” feature about Hacksaw Jones, but it was never shown after Jones insisted on full editorial discretion. BECOMING A CIVIL LITIGATOR

During the mid 1970s, Cochran decided to make the transition from criminal to civil litigation and joined the Broward County Attorney’s office when it established its first Civil Litigation Division. He next teamed up with Steve Billing and Ted Hainline to open the firm which is now Billing Cochran. The new firm immediately found a niche in insurance defense work, representing clients like General Motors, USAA, GEICO, St. Paul and USF&G. During the next two decades, the law firm continued to grow, handling medical malpractice defense for hospitals and doctors,

representing numerous local government entities and handling a wide variety of civil litigation. The firm now has 23 attorneys and a second office in West Palm Beach. One of those attorneys is Cochran’s son Scott, who practices in the Fort Lauderdale office. His daughter Amy has a masters degree from North Carolina State and is an up-and-coming fashion designer. With his wife Ann, Cochran is actively involved in the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, and he has served as chairman of the board of Westminster Academy. “I had the privilege of handing out diplomas to both of our kids,” he says. Both Cochran and his son are avid tennis players who often attend the major tournaments together. On the professional side, Cochran has handled thousands of general liability and tort cases for insurance companies and municipal clients like the City of Fort Lauderdale, which he has represented since the founding of the firm. One of his biggest courtroom victories came against a national billboard company that sued the city hoping

to overturn an ordinance that limited outdoor advertising. But Cochran says his most “amusing case” in recent years involved Club Atlantis, a Fort Lauderdale beach nightclub represented by high-profile attorney Scott Rothstein, now a convicted felon. “A city ordinance prohibited minors from entering the club because it served alcoholic beverages, but was not a full-service restaurant,” he says. “Rothstein went to the newspapers and vowed he would bring the city to its knees.” However Cochran won the case in the state circuit court, in the state appellate court, in federal district court and in federal appeals court. Later, after Rothstein’s conviction for fraud, Cochran saw that the nightclub owner was listed as one of Rothstein’s many creditors. Reflecting on Cochran’s distinguished career, Harry Stewart, Fort Lauderdale’s long-time city attorney, says, “Clark has done an excellent job for the city since the 1970s. He handles dozens of cases a year and we have always been very happy with his work.” 2013

Mitchell Fuerst knows that the best strategy for certain tax problems is taking on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). But sometimes a tax issue results from a mistake in navigating the complex web of federal regulations or is a symptom of a deeper problem within the business. Like an experienced physician, Fuerst knows how to diagnose the real problem and recommend an appropriate remedy. “My practice has grown through the years,” says Fuerst, a founding member of Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph, PL and the firm’s managing partner. “But there is one common element. In representing businesses, the federal government will be on the other side of the case.” Starting with tax law and litigation, Fuerst’s practice has expanded into administrative law and litigation with federal agencies, as well as international tax issues, business transactions and mergers and acquisitions. That cross-pollenization gives Fuerst a broader perspective when advising clients.

adds Fuerst. “We are now in a cycle of strong IRS, FDA and FTC enforcement that will continue for another year or two at least. Right now there is tremendous pressure to generate revenue for the government, and non-compliance is less tolerated at any level.” A LIFELONG LOVE OF THE LAW

Born in New York in 1953, Fuerst decided to become a lawyer when he was five years old. “I always watched ‘Perry Mason’ and ‘The Defenders’ on TV and never thought about any other career,” he says. “As a career, it’s been a great fit for me. I am naturally argumentative, for one thing, and I get to exercise my intellect. For instance, I got a wonderful education on the inner workings of hedge funds the other day during the deposition of a defendant.” Fuerst adds that another advantage of being a lawyer is having control over your career. “You can start off in one field, and then move to another as your interests change,” he says. “If you spend time litigating cases, the fundamental skills of learning a case and

MITCHELL FUERST TAKING ON THE FEDS

“Some lawyers are knowledgeable but not litigators,” says Matthew Feshbach, founder and CEO, Okyanos Heart Institute in Clearwater. “On the other hand, Mitchell is tremendously analytical as well as a very aggressive and successful litigator. We have referred a number of clients to him in areas from stem cell research to real estate to international tax work.” With more than 30 years of experience in the tax and administrative sectors, Fuerst understands the difficulties that arise when dealing with federal agencies. For example, a client who fails to comply with U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations can wind up in front of the U.S. Tax Court facing a team of seasoned IRS attorneys. Let’s say a U.S. company hires a U.S. design firm and spends $10 million to develop plans for a product that will be manufactured by a factory in China or India. Naturally, the company deducts that $10 million expense from its corporate tax bill. But when those Chinamade products come ashore at a U.S. port, that $10 million must be added to the products’ value for Customs purposes. “If you take a tax deduction, but don’t pay the added duty, the IRS could come to you and ask, ‘Which of these documents is fraudulent?’ You never want to be in that position,” Fuerst says. In fact, the risks of non-compliance – with taxes, customs duties or food and drug safety regulations – are extremely high now, 24

articulating a client’s position will carry you across many other areas of the law.” Fuerst earned his bachelor’s degree at American University in Washington, DC, and enrolled at the University of Miami School of Law. “While clerking at a local firm, one of the partners told me I should have gone to the University of Florida, because it produced most of the state’s judges and political leaders,” Fuerst says. “I felt that as the son of a bagel maker going to school in Miami, I would have to fight to build my career. I knew I wanted to be a litigator so I chose to focus on tax law, because it’s an area where what you know is more important than who you know. After all, the U.S. Tax Court is a national court whose decisions affect taxpayers throughout the U.S. and aboard.” After graduation, Fuerst worked as a trial attorney with the Internal Revenue Service’s Office of Chief Counsel in Chicago. Six years later, having moved to Miami, Fuerst entered private practice, concentrating on tax and tax litigation from the defendant’s perspective. “Throughout my career, I have engaged many attorneys and I can tell you unequivocally that Mitch Fuerst is the best there is,” says Herb Hirsch, president of Hirsch Enterprises, a New York real estate developer. “He can be tough when he needs to be and a lovable teddy bear when it suits his purpose. No one can push him around. He has the knowledge, experience and creativity needed to

overcome all the many intricacies and complexities of the tax laws. He takes lemons and makes them into lemonade.” ADDRESSING COMPLEX ISSUES

Since founding his own practice in 1988, Fuerst has helped clients in many aspects of the law. He has advised computer parts distributors about the complications associated with Brazilian customs regulations, briefed Chinese aquaculture farmers on developments in U.S. import law, advised domestic financial institutions about the PATRIOT Act and represented food and drug product manufacturers and importers under indictment in Federal District Court. A member of the Florida Academy of Trial Lawyers and The Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Fuerst has also been an adjunct professor in the University of Miami School of Law’s Master’s Degree program in Taxation, and spent four years as outside

general counsel for Future Tech International, Inc., in Miami. Since opening his own firm in 1988, Fuerst has built a worldwide practice while raising two sons and a daughter with his wife, Manya. He enjoys traveling and spending time with his family, but has no plans to retire. “I’ve been practicing law for 35 years and I figure I’m about halfway done,” he says. “I like helping my clients and I really enjoy learning more about the law.” On the personal side, Fuerst is a student of American history who has read hundreds of books about Abraham Lincoln, the abolition movement and the Civil War. “What intrigues me the most about the Civil War,” he says, “is that this was the only time in our history where one side fought to the death for the benefit of a group of people they didn’t particularly care about. Northern whites went off to war to free black people from slavery, although they had no personal or economic interest in doing so. I think it shows the power of a moral commitment – something we still need today.” 2013

NEAL ROTH A BELIEVER IN MERIT Neal Roth won his most important legal battle this fall. But the outcome was decided in the state’s voting booths rather than in the courtroom. A nationally respected trial lawyer and managing partner of Grossman Roth in Coral Gables, Roth led the successful merit retention campaign that kept three justices on the Florida Supreme Court. “Several years ago, we saw that a concerted effort would be made to remove those justices, who had voted to strike down several unconstitutional acts passed by the state Legislature,” Roth says. “I’ve been involved in a lot of election campaigns, but this was the biggest of them all because the stakes were so high. The essence of our democracy is at risk when politics tries to inject itself into judicial decision-making.” Teaming up with political allies like former Republican state senator Alex Villalobos, Roth was the mastermind in a campaign to educate voters about merit retention and the importance of fair and impartial courts. After the Nov. 6 ballot victory, Villalobos had high praise for Roth’s acumen and leadership. “Even though he’s a Democrat and I’m a Republican, we’ve worked together on many issues for nearly 20 years,” he says. “He’s one of the top strategists in Florida and respected by all sides for his honesty and integrity. Neal has the ability to look at a very complex issue and break it down into a matter of right or wrong. I trust his judgment completely.” With his analytic skills and compassion for victims of negligence, Roth has focused his trial practice on medical malpractice, personal injury, legal malpractice, securities fraud, bad faith and age discrimination cases. He has long been active in the Florida Justice Association, serving as president and playing an active role in the organization’s political and legislative matters. In 2003, they honored him with the Perry Nichols Award, recognizing a career dedicated to the advancement of justice. A LIFE-CHANGING INJURY

Born in New York, Roth moved to North Miami Beach with his family at an early age. When he was 15, Roth was seriously injured 26

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

while working at his father’s gas station-car wash. “As I was pumping gas, a car behind me didn’t stop in time, pinning me against another car and crushing my right leg,” he says. “I was in the hospital for four months and wound up with a shortened right leg. As a result, I had a lot of early exposure to doctors.” Roth considered a career in medicine, but decided his abilities were more suited to the law. He also heeded his father’s advice about the importance of being your own boss. After earning his bachelor’s degree at the University of Florida and law degree at Emory University, Roth honed his trial advocacy skills by obtaining an LL.M. at New York University with a concentration in law and medicine. From there, Roth joined an insurance defense firm that focused on medical malpractice litigation. “But my basic philosophy and upbringing made me more oriented toward the underdog,” Roth says. “While some physicians I defended were grateful, others were angry about being in court and felt they should never have been sued in the first place. So I decided to work for clients who would really appreciate my services.” For more than six years, Roth worked with Miami trial attorney Stanley Rosenblatt, before opening his own firm in 1985. His practice grew quickly and in 1988, Roth teamed up with Stuart Z. Grossman to form Grossman Roth. Twenty-four years later, the Coral Gables firm has four offices and 11 attorneys, “For me one of the most important aspects of being a trial lawyer is having a great professional relationship with the client,” Roth says. “They become part of our firm’s family, and their issues really motivate me to do well in the courts.” Roth also enjoys the analytical work involved in preparing for trial. “It takes time and a great deal of consideration to develop a strategy aimed at bringing about the best result for the client,” he says. “There are always hurdles to overcome and obstacles to remove. It’s like playing a game of chess where all the pieces are moving at the same time, as you try to checkmate the other side.” Roth says the discovery phase is often the most critical step in the trial. “You have to be prepared to get the information you need,” he says. “Our opponents know we never cut corners in our preparation.”


DISTINGUISHED ATTORNEYS

That attitude has paid off in many high-profile Florida cases. Shortly after founding the firm, Roth handled a case that changed hospital protocol involving pediatric electrocardiograms (EKGs). As an infant, Chantelle Berman had an EKG performed and interpreted by an adult cardiologist who failed to detect a congenital heart defect – a highly treatable condition if diagnosed in time. Unfortunately, Chantelle suffered irreversible pulmonary hypertension, and later died. After the case was settled, the hospital agreed to change its policies and procedures so that EKGs on children 12 years of age and younger would be interpreted by pediatric cardiologists. “Lives clearly have been saved” Roth says. ENJOYING FAMILY AND SPORTS

On the personal side, Roth enjoys playing golf and attending Miami Heat games. “Before my high school accident, I was a decent athlete,” he says. “Since then, I’ve played golf through the years. My

wife Vicki and I have a second home in Pebble Beach and we enjoy our time there.” Married for more than 40 years, the Roths have two daughters, Melissa and Lori, and four grandchildren. “We’re thinking about taking more family trips with the grandchildren,” he says. Roth is also a staunch advocate of the state’s public education system. “We need a strong school system in Florida for many reasons,” he says. “From an economic development point of view, it’s essential to attract entrepreneurs and new businesses. I have a second home in California, and I know the importance of education to Silicon Valley. We need to increase teachers’ pay and incentives to attract the best qualified educators at every level.” Looking ahead, Roth says he wants to stay involved and manage the law firm, while preparing the next generation of leaders. “We have the lawyers here who will make that transition happen,” he says. “I plan to provide strategic advice and handle a select number of cases, and move ahead with my life.” 2013

An accomplished cook, Mindy A. Mora knows how to slice up a homemade apple pie for friends and family members. After all, Mora does the same thing as a bankruptcy attorney, dividing up a company’s assets for creditors – even when there are only a few pieces left. “Ultimately, bankruptcy is about figuring out how to take less than 100 percent and redistribute those assets among competing claimants,” says Mora, a partner at Bilzin Sumberg in Miami who focuses her practice on creditor’s rights, workouts, bankruptcy and commercial loan transactions. A longtime leader in The Florida Bar Business Law Section, Mora has also played a major role in the development of Florida’s commercial laws. She chaired the Florida Bar Task Force that sponsored the 2007 revisions of the Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors Statute, and co-sponsored the 1997 revisions to Article 8 and 1999 revisions to Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Referring to the 2007 ABC revisions, Mora says, “We pulled together

So, she joined a Los Angeles law firm and built a transactional practice in corporate finance and commercial lending. One of the early loans she documented resulted in a chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in Seattle, so Mora began commuting up and down the West Coast. Wanting to move back to the east coast, Mora interviewed with attorney Scott Baena, then at the Miami office of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, a national New York-based law firm. “We hit it off right away and in 1986 I moved to Miami and started practicing law with Scott, whose focus is more toward litigation while mine was more transactional.

I will continue to be very involved, because the Bar does such important work for the citizens of Florida.” COMBINING BUSINESS AND THE LAW

Mora grew up in suburban Connecticut in the 1960s, always knowing she wanted to be a lawyer. “I loved what those TV attorneys did in unearthing the truth and presenting their cases in a courtroom,” she says. Her older brother Stephen applied to law school a few years earlier, but because of some health issues as a child he was only able to get into a non-ABA accredited California law school. Mora decided to pursue law only if she could get into a top-ten law school. “I wanted to study business and law, and felt my career could go either way,” she says. After graduating from high school in 1975, she went to George 28

We’ve worked together ever since then, although my practice has transitioned back to litigation in the last 20 years.” JOINING BILZIN SUMBERG

Until 1991, one of Stroock-Miami’s biggest clients was Southeast Bank, for whom Mora did many commercial finance transactions until First Union acquired the Miami institution. “They had very restrictive conflict policies, and didn’t want us to take on any work that might be adverse to them.” In fact, conflict issues are a big problem for many bankruptcy lawyers who represent debtors and creditors’ committees, Mora adds. That’s one of the reasons she joined Bilzin Sumberg in 2000 along with Scott Baena and the rest of the Stroock bankruptcy team. “Scott and I were representing the debtor in a chapter 11 case for a large timeshare company in Orlando,” she says. “Right before the filing, we were told we couldn’t represent the debtor because one attorney in Stroock’s New York office was handling a small, unrelated matter for the national bank that was on the other side.” At Bilzin, Mora’s high-profile cases include representing the debtor in possession in the chapter 11 case of Cabi Downtown LLC, the owner of an 849-unit condominium project, which had debts in excess of $250 million owed to a bank consortium, defaulting unit purchasers, trade creditors and its general contractor. This was the first

large condominium filing in South Florida after the 2005-2007 real estate boom, and the debtor’s plan was confirmed in December 2010. Following the successful resolution of a separate Cabi case in May 2012, U.S Bankruptcy Court Judge A. Jay Cristol told Mora, “This is truly a case of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. There being no objections, the plan is confirmed. I used to describe [Miami bankruptcy attorney] Peter Russin as the magic man. Now you are entitled to be the magic woman.”

Over the last 20 years, Mora’s practice has been primarily focused on bankruptcy work, such as representing the chapter 11 trustee in the reorganization of ITG Vegas, a Palm Beach-based “cruise to nowhere” casino operation, along with 12 of its affiliated companies, which the trustee sold to maximize the return to creditors “When the economy improves as it has in 2012, the bankruptcy work slows down, so our team needs to be more than a one-trick pony,” she says. “Lately, I’ve been working with our litigators on a number of foreclosure matters.” When she’s not working on bankruptcies and foreclosures, Mora is frequently working out. “I’m a fitness buff who enjoys pilates, biking, running, speed walking and dancing,” she says. “In fact I met my husband, Hernando Mora, on the dance floor, and dancing is an activity that we continue to enjoy together.” Her other hobbies include cooking, reading, sports and technology. She took several classes in computer science in college, and now has a reading tablet, smartphone, laptop and other tech tools. Mora has two sons, Gregg, who recently graduated from Florida State University and now works with Coral Gables CPA and bankruptcy trustee Maria Yip, and Michael, a second-year student at Florida Gulf Coast University. Throughout her career, Mora has lectured and published numerous articles about insolvency, restructuring and commercial lending. She also has a clear viewpoint on how best to resolve these tangled commercial matters. “Most South Florida bankruptcy attorneys understand that reaching consensus among creditors and the debtor is the most efficient outcome for any bankruptcy case,” she says. “You may need to litigate on behalf of your client – and I represent my clients vigorously – but fighting to the bitter death is often not the best way to deal with a diminished pot of assets. Reaching a consensual resolution with different stakeholders is the key to most successful restructurings.” 2013

ACKERMAN LINK & SARTORY A BUSINESS LAW FIRM WITH A FAMILY ATMOSPHERE 32

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

With a husband, wife and their best friend as founding partners, Ackerman Link & Sartory is a business law firm with a unique family atmosphere. “We’ve worked together since May 1996, and never had one cross word among us,” says Wendy Sartory Link, managing partner of the West Palm Beach firm. While she and her husband Scott Link and their friend David Ackerman share ideas and strategies for cases, the three partners have different types of business practices. “We


PROMINENT LAW FIRMS

talk all the time and have faith in each other,” she adds. “That allows us to focus on our cases as opposed to having to politic with other partners.” All three founders were working at Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart (now Gunster) in the 1990s, where Ackerman co-chaired the securities litigation group with Link and served as his mentor. A native of West Palm Beach, where her father was president of the Palm Beach Post, Wendy Sartory moved back to the area in 1994 to handle large real estate transactions. “It was love at first sight,” recalls Scott Link. They married in 1995 and now have three children. At that time, Gunster had a prohibition about having married couples in the firm, and the Links had to apply for a waiver to continue practicing together. A year later, the Links left Gunster with Ackerman and founded their firm. “We knew Wendy had the best management skills, so she’s been the managing partner ever since,” says Scott Link. Today, their eight-attorney firm handles business litigation and transactions for regional, national and international clients. “One of the three of us will be the lead attorney in every matter, which is important to sophisticated clients,” says Scott Link. “We are selective in the work we take in and believe in the traditional Golden Rule; we give our clients the top quality legal service we would want and we treat them the same way we would want to be treated. In that way, we become trusted advisors and counselors.” VARYING PRACTICE AREAS

Two of the name partners at Ackerman Link & Sartory primarily handle business litigation, as well as legal malpractice cases. “I enjoy handling complex matters from the defense side,” says Ackerman, who is board-certified in business litigation. “My current workload includes a securities case involving hedge funds, and a commercial foreclosure connected to a guarantee in a securitized loan portfolio.” A member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, Ackerman received the 2006 Professionalism Award from the Palm Beach County Bar Association, was named the 2012 Lawyer of the Year for Commercial Litigation in South Florida by Best Lawyers in America, and is an active supporter of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County and the Salvation Army. Scott Link also handles legal malpractice, securities cases and commercial litigation. “In the last few years, legal malpractice cases have grown to be about 30 percent of our practice,” says Link, who is board certified in commercial litigation. “We have the privilege to represent many of the top statewide firms, as well as national and international firms. It’s one of the most rewarding aspects of our practice and also the most stressful because I always take these cases personally.” Currently, Link is handling cases in Texas, New York and Alabama, as well as Florida. Link brings a unique understanding and global perspective to his practice areas as he has represented both plaintiffs and corporate defendants. He started 25 years ago on the corporate defense side but for the past 15 years, he has also been active in securities and business litigation on the plaintiff ’s side. Today, he has a national practice representing individual and corporate

investors in claims against their advisors, brokerage firms, money managers and financial institutions. He is a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, was named a Bet-theCompany Litigator by Best Lawyers in America, has served on the National Arbitration and Mediation Committee of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), and was recently designated a Public Member of the Securities Industry Conference on Arbitration (SICA). In handling securities actions, Link notes that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration process is designed for smaller cases, primarily individuals who were cheated by others. “My clients may have lost $20 million to $750 million, so they don’t look as needy to the panel of arbitrators,” he says. “Our biggest challenge is getting the panel to understand that a wrong is a wrong – regardless of the amount that’s involved in the case.” While her two partners handle litigation, Wendy Sartory Link focuses her practice on business transactions, including real estate. Named one of the “50 Most Influential Women in Palm Beach and Broward Counties” by Fast Track magazine, Link is active in numerous civic and community organizations, including Florida Colleges Trustee Commission, the District Board of Trustees for Palm Beach State College, Florida Healthy Kids Corporation, Forum Club of the Palm Beaches, Economic Council of Palm Beach County, and the WPBT Channel 2 Public Television Board. She received the “Heart of Gold” award from the Salvation Army of Palm Beach County for her pro bono work on the development of its community centers. During the boom years of the early 2000s, Link worked with commercial developers and financial institutions handling shopping centers and other retail projects. “I was an outside general counsel to many of our smaller clients,” she says. “As the real estate transactions slowed down along with the downturn in the economy, the litigation side of the practice continued to thrive.” With her experience in legal documentation and financial structures, Link has been an important member of the litigation team in malpractice cases. “Since these actions are based on what an attorney did that was right or wrong, I can go back to the original documents,” she says. “I can also advise on whether or not the problems a developer or financial institution faced were related to changes in the real estate market.” As the region’s economy improves, though, Link has seen a pickup in her real estate transactional practice. “We’re already handling more transactions than we did last year,” she says. “I see no reason why that won’t continue in 2013.” LOOKING AHEAD

With their thriving business practices, the three partners plan to keep Ackerman Link & Sartory moving ahead on its current path. “We don’t stray from what we know,” says Wendy Link. “We’ve had opportunities to merge with other firms or have groups of attorneys join us, but we have made a strategic decision to stay at our current size. That allows the three of us to oversee every matter and provide the highest level of service to our clients.” 2013

BECKER & POLIAKOFF GROWING FROM FLORIDA ROOTS

Gary Poliakoff and Alan Becker

Forty years after its founding, Becker & Poliakoff is moving forward on a robust growth path. Last fall, the Fort Lauderdale-based firm added a new Florida office in Stuart, as well as nationally known intellectual property (IP) team in Northern Virginia. “Businesses today are focusing on sustainable growth,” says Gary Rosen, managing shareholder and a board certified business litigation attorney. “They prefer to align themselves with law firms that have a similar philosophy and share those core values.” That sense of teamwork – and the ability to offer business clients a “one-stop” solution – was one of the reasons Virginia patent attorney Richard C. Litman joined Becker & Poliakoff in October as managing shareholder of the firm’s new office near the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). “We have a well-integrated team of quality attorneys who are focused on serving our clients,” says Litman, citing former USPTO Director Richard J. Apley, who leads the office’s team of patent practitioners, and patent searchers, patent illustrators, technical specialists and client service managers. “There are great people throughout our firm who are really at the top of their game,” Litman adds. In South Florida, the firm is also taking advantage of the region’s economic recovery to serve clients in its traditional fields of real estate and construction. “We are coordinating our practice groups to assist clients with land use, development, construction and litigation matters,” says shareholder Steven B. Lesser, who is board certified in construction law. Lesser adds that the firm is moving aggressively into the public-private partnership (P3) arena. Led by partner Lee Weintraub and chief operating officer George Burgess, former Miami-Dade county manager, Becker & Poliakoff is gearing up to be a trusted advisor for public and private entities seeking P3 opportunities. The firm is also a founding member of the Florida Council for PublicPrivate Partnerships. One of Lesser’s long-time clients is Swire Properties, which is beginning to develop the $1 billion mixed-use Brickell CitiCentre project in Miami. “Swire bought the property when the market was in the tank,” Lesser says. “Now you can see more apartment buildings and other projects sprouting up. By 2015, we will have real change in the real estate market.” FOUNDED ON COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION LAW

Back in 1973, Miami attorneys Alan Becker and Gary Poliakoff founded a new firm that focused on condominium law. The two partners had met in law school but went separate ways after graduation. Poliakoff 34

Richard Litman, managing shareholder Gary Rosen and Steve Lesser

pursued a business career, while Becker served in the Florida Legislature as a state representative. The two reunited to assist the Miami Beach Tenants Association, a group of apartment dwellers fighting for their legal rights. “Alan was the driving force behind passage of the first condominium act in Florida,” says Rosen, who has been with the firm for 30 years. “We have continued that focus now for four decades.” From a humble two-attorney office in Miami Beach representing condominium and homeowners associations, Becker and Poliakoff moved the firm to Fort Lauderdale in the early 1980s. Since then, Becker & Poliakoff has steadily added new practice areas and new offices. For its first 20 years, the firm grew exclusively in Florida, sending out shareholders to open new offices. “As the firm grew faster, and opened offices outside Florida, we were able to find topquality attorneys with tremendous reputations who fit well with the firm’s culture,” says Rosen. Today the firm has more than 160 attorneys, lobbyists and other professionals in 12 Florida offices, two offices in New Jersey, and offices in New York City, Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and Europe. A member of Legus, a national and global law firm network, Becker & Poliakoff ’s practice areas include real estate transactions, construction, community associations, customs and international trade, litigation, corporate and securities, intellectual property and government law and lobbying. “One of the reasons our firm is still going strong is a powerful team culture,” says Rosen. “We are not a group of lawyers who happen to be practicing under the same letterhead. We are one law firm, and the cohesion and collegiality and the enjoyment we get from practicing with each other is a very important part of our identity.” Rosen adds that client expectations are becoming more and more rigorous in every field of law. “Clients demand top-notch attentive and constant service, so our attorneys are responsive and plugged in at all times,” he says. Noting that the firm has a 24/hour Client CARE Center, he adds, “Being a lawyer today is as far removed from a 9 to 5 job as you can imagine. Firms that stay ahead of the curve

and communicate in everyway possible that they understand those demands and are eager to meet those demands are the ones that will succeed. Those that pull against that tide will disappear.” SERVING THE COMMUNITY

Through the years, Becker & Poliakoff attorneys and staffers have been actively engaged in civic, humanitarian and business organizations. The firm’s signature charity is Helping Hands, which grew out of Weintraub’s hospital experiences as a father whose infant had ocular cancer. Realizing that there are many families whose children are in the hospital during the holidays, Weintraub started a grassroots drive to collect toys for kids. “Now, virtually everyone in all our offices participates in Helping Hands, raising funds and visiting needy children in local hospitals,” Rosen says. A longtime civic leader, Becker is the immediate past chair of the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade’s economic development partnership and a board member of Enterprise Florida, the state’s public/private economic development organization. Firm members have been active in the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, Florida Atlantic University Foundation, University of Florida Alumni, Kristi House, the Orange Bowl Committee and numerous other organizations. Lesser is currently chair of The Florida Bar’s Construction Certification Committee and has held leadership roles in several American Bar Association (ABA) committees. “We encourage all attorneys to become involved in the Bar,” he says. “You learn from other lawyers, interact with them and develop your own skills.” Lesser also emphasizes the importance of continuing education and maintaining a professional outlook. “We believe in educating our people and making them better lawyers and administrators,” he adds. “We want them to learn how to do team work and become better business people as well as hone their legal skills,” he says. As Becker & Poliakoff looks at the future, Rosen predicts the firm will continue to grow steadily. “We tend to move carefully and be sure we’re heading in the right direction,” he says. Most importantly, we will continue to provide clients with the highest level of personalized legal service.” 2013 SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE

BERGER SINGERMAN A FOCUS ON FLORIDA

Mitchell W. Berger says there’s a simple reason for a law firm’s success. “You need to follow the golden rule and treat clients like you would want to be treated,” says the founder and co-chair of Berger Singerman. “Clients appreciate talented lawyers who speak their minds, but a firm’s culture should always encourage civility – not going over the line.” Since founding the firm in 1985 in Fort Lauderdale, Berger has taken that approach to client service with excellent results. Today the business law firm has four offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Tallahassee with more than 75 attorneys in four teams: business reorganization; business, finance and tax; dispute resolution; and government and regulatory. Reflecting on the firm’s early history, James Berger, managing partner, says, “My brother Mitchell was in Tennessee doing work for a client on litigation involving land in Aventura, while I was practicing in Texas doing work for the same client. Mitchell moved here in 1985 and opened the firm, and I followed a year later.” During its first decade, the firm focused primarily on litigation, corporate transactions and real estate, with a small, one-attorney office in Tallahassee. New attorneys came aboard, as the firm expanded its client base. In 1997, Paul Steven Singerman joined the firm as co-CEO bringing his Miami-based bankruptcy practice. “Since then we have never engaged in a merger or acquisition,” says James Berger. “We take pride in the way our attorneys and talented non-lawyer professionals combine their talents to give our clients responsive and efficient client service.” MAJOR CASES

Through the years, the firm’s attorneys have handled 36

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

a wide range of major cases. Mitchell Berger has assisted numerous Fortune 500 companies in commercial disputes, and represented Vice President Al Gore and Joseph Lieberman in the post-2000 election Florida lawsuits in Bush v. Gore. “We have had opportunities to go into other fields, such as family law, but we have retained our focus on the business side,” he says. A fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy, Singerman concentrates his practice in troubled loan workouts, insolvency matters and commercial transactions. He is counsel to Judge Herbert Stettin as Chapter 11 Trustee for the law firm of Rothstein, Rosenfeldt & Adler, P.A. in the largest Ponzi scheme in Florida history involving approximately $1.2 billion. James Berger’s practice consists primarily of representing real estate related businesses and developers in connection with purchase and sale transactions, development projects and financing transactions. His practice has also recently focused on representing large real estate funds in the acquisition of troubled projects, including a failed mall, a broken condominium facility and an overleveraged resort property. “We still do work for the real estate client we represented back in 1985,” he adds. “We also continue to represent entrepreneurial businesses, along with our large-scale corporate clients.” FOCUSING ON FLORIDA

While other Florida law firms have become national and international in scope, Berger Singerman has continued to focus on Florida matters. “The legal community knows we are a Florida firm that can handle major litigation, transactions and bankruptcy matters,” says Mitchell Berger. Singerman adds that the firm doesn’t measure success by


PROMINENT LAW FIRMS

the number of attorneys or offices. “We always want to have three lawyers less than we need,” he says, adding “Our vision is a Florida law firm that has treasured relationships with firms in other states.” During the economic downturn, the firm’s bankruptcy practice received the most attention in regional and national media, according to James Berger. “That’s been the backbone of our success in recent years,” he adds. “While many firms have conflicts with their bankruptcy clients, we have structured our business plan to stay more nimble. Paul’s team attracts bankruptcy work, which often leads to transactional work, so we all keep busy.” Berger adds that the firm’s litigation and dispute resolution practices have doubled in size over the past five years. Other growth areas are corporate transactions, securities and regulatory matters. In addition, the firm continues to add bilingual lawyers to service its international clients. Singerman notes that the firm has a low attrition rate. “Our lawyers appreciate the attention they receive from the firm’s leadership and our commitment to reinvesting in the firm and the professional development of each lawyer.” IN THE COMMUNITY

Mitchell Berger believes that attorneys need to be closely connected to the communities they serve, and take leadership positions in political, civic and charitable activities. A longtime Democratic party insider, Berger has been active in the last ten presidential campaigns. He has also been involved with Nova Southeastern University (NSU) for more than 20 years, and has served on the university’s board of trustees. In 1997, Gov. Lawton Chiles appointed Berger to the governing board of the South Florida Water Management District, and in 1998 President Clinton named him to chair the national Student Loan Marketing Association. His brother James has been involved in many South Florida organizations, and led a capital campaign for Boys and Girls

Clubs of Broward County and served as pro bono counsel to Jack and Jill Children’s Center. Another partner who is involved in the community is Jordi Guso, who received the 2012 Pro Bono Award from Dade Legal Aid and Put Something Back for his service to Miami-Dade organizations. Singerman, one of the initial officers of the Bankruptcy Bar Foundation which raises money for pro bono bankruptcy work in South Florida, says the firm is fully committed to giving back to the community. “For our 20th anniversary, we held a reception at the Museum of Discovery and Science to introduce a number of South Florida charities to our attorneys, clients and friends,” he says. “We were glad to provide them with financial support in the form of $200,000 in donations from our firm, as well. For our 25th anniversary we had a similar event and donated $250,000 to charities in the markets in which we practice.” LOOKING AHEAD

Singerman expects South Florida’s economic recovery to pick up steam in the next two years. “That will provide a chance to showcase our talent in areas that have not been in high demand,” he says. “Our business finance and tax team is extraordinary, in transactional, tax and estate planning matters.” He also expects to see a resumption of real estate development and transaction activity, including land use and environmental matters. “I’m very bullish about this next cycle,” Singerman adds. “The business reorganization team will continue to be busy in our market, while the spotlight will shine on our colleagues on the firm’s other teams.” Mitchell Berger agrees with that forecast. “New businesses will be formed throughout Florida to support new ideas in areas like biotech and alternative energy, helping to uplift the state’s economy,” he says. “With Florida’s growing national and international connections, our firm will help facilitate the flow of capital and play an important role in the future of our state.” 2013

FELDMAN GALE PROTECTING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Jeffrey Feldman and James Gale

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

Protecting a new invention, trademark or creative work requires an experienced intellectual property (IP) law firm, according to James A. Gale, co-founder of Miami-based Feldman Gale. “We understand the importance of enforcing our clients’ IP rights and have built a nationwide practice in this unique sector of the law.” A Registered Patent Attorney who focuses his legal practice on IP counseling and litigation, Gale was one of the first board-certified intellectual property specialists in Florida. His partner and firm co-founder Jeffrey Feldman is an experienced litigator who has “first-chaired” patent, trade secret, trademark, copyright, false advertising, and unfair competition cases around the nation. “Jeff enjoys complex IP litigation, and is comfortable appearing as trial counsel late in a case,” Gale says.


PROMINENT LAW FIRMS

“Since 98 percent of patent cases settle, Jeff is one of the few IP attorneys who has actually tried a number of patent cases to verdict.” Today, Feldman Gale has a team of more than 20 attorneys, many of whom have science, engineering and technology backgrounds. With offices in Tampa, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, the firm represents manufacturers, distributors, service companies, technology companies, individual investors and universities in virtually all industry sectors, and in all aspects of intellectual property law, including procurement, licensing, mediation, arbitration, trial and appeals. “Our firm includes registered patent lawyers and seasoned trial attorneys – and that makes a big difference,” says Feldman. “When necessary, we create teams of people who bring different skill sets together, fielding an IP team that can go head-to-head with the largest firms.” While having savvy IP attorneys is crucial to the firm’s success, Gale adds that the team focuses on giving clients good value for professional service as well as personalized attention, , including being on call 24/7 if necessary. “Our goal is not to get bigger and open a lot of new offices,” says Gale. “Many firms have gotten into trouble by growing just for the sake of growth. We already have excellent bench strength if a case requires more people. Our objective is to be the best in our field.” LAUNCHING THE FIRM

Feldman and Gale practiced separately in South Florida for many years before teaming up to form their firm on April 1, 1995. “Jeff and I go back to law school at the University of Florida in the 1970s,” recalls Gale. “He was two years ahead of me, and when I saw him as a student juror in a mock trial, I said to myself, ‘That’s who I’d like to be someday.’ Over the years, our careers took different paths, but I would constantly read about Jeff ’s accomplishments in the courtroom.” After earning his law degree, Gale worked at Broad & Cassel, Morgan Lewis & Bockius and McDermott, Will & Emery building his IP practice. Meanwhile, Feldman became an assistant state attorney and assistant U.S. attorney. As a federal prosecutor, he conducted federal grand jury investigations involving wire and mail fraud, racketeering and neutrality violations. He also investigated aspects of the Iran-Contra case during the Reagan presidency. During that time, he indicted and singularly tried many of his cases to jury verdict. Feldman entered private practice in 1988 and was a shareholder at Fine, Jacobson, Schwartz, Nash & Block and a partner at McDermott, Will & Emery, where he assisted Gale in a patent litigation case. “Jim asked me to assist with the trial work,” Feldman says. “I had not done work on patent cases before then, but I did my homework and was able to try and settle the case on favorable terms for our client.” To celebrate the outcome, the two attorneys met for drinks at a Miami Lakes restaurant and decided to launch their own firm. “Through the years, about 80 percent of our work has involved intellectual property,” says Gale. “We also have a thriving commercial litigation practice, since Jeff and others in the firm

can try any type of case.” Another aspect of the firm’s practice involves drafting and litigating non-compete and confidentiality provisions in employment contracts. “The inter-relationships of various state laws can have a significant bearing on the outcome,” says Gale, who advises clients on these clauses. “For example, California’s statute expressly prohibits covenants not to compete, while Minnesota is one of the most pro-enforcement states in the nation. In these matters, choice of forum can make a huge difference in the outcome.” Gale notes that once the firm’s attorneys have learned the ins and outs of a client’s IP case – particularly matters involving sophisticated technology – it makes economic sense for the client to use Feldman Gale for similar litigation matters around the country. “Because of the learning curve, we get a lot of work from both plaintiffs and defendants,” Feldman says. “It’s not uncommon for us to handle a series of patent cases for the same client.” To date, the two partners have handled IP cases in more than 40 states. Feldman adds that the firm is seeing an increase in plaintiff patent filings in Florida courts, particularly in the Southern and Middle Districts, as the state’s federal judges acquire expertise in this field. “What really distinguishes our firm is the depth of our patent and trademark practices,” Feldman says. “We handle everything from prosecution to clearance to litigation and licensing,” he says. “Knowing the filing and registration processes also gives our team a head start when IP disputes arise.” LEADING THE WAY

Both Gale and Feldman have been leaders in advancing the knowledge of IP issues in legal circles. A longtime advocate for board certification, Gale became the first chairperson of The Florida Bar’s Board Certification Committee in 2007. In February, Feldman is scheduled to speak at The Florida Bar’s International Litigation and Arbitration Conference on “Developments in International Intellectual Property Litigation.” In the community, Gale has served on the board of directors of HANDY Inc. (Helping Abused And Neglected Youth), and was active in the American Red Cross, Jewish Federation of Greater Miami and the Italian American Club. Feldman is active with several South Florida music and art organizations, and is a trustee of the Musical Arts Association of Miami, which supports The Cleveland Orchestra’s winter residency in Miami. Both Gale and Feldman are members of the Board of Trustees of the University of Florida Law School. Professionally, Feldman frequently lectures on IP topics. He will be speaking at the Dade County Bar symposiums on the America Invents Act, and has been invited to speak at the U.S. Patent Office in January. “IP is a fascinating area of practice that is always evolving,” he says. “For instance, some of the patent challenges that would typically be filed in district court may be shifting to administrative proceedings. But whatever the future holds, Feldman Gale will be there to assist our clients.” 2013

GAEBE MULLEN ANTONELLI & DIMATTEO ATTORNEYS FOR THE DEFENSE

Gaebe, Mullen, Antonelli & DiMatteo believes an effective civil litigator needs to be a good communicator. “You have to be able to connect with clients, judge, jury and the opposing counsel,” says Michael Mullen, managing partner at the business law and trial counsel litigation firm based in Coral Gables with an office in West Palm Beach. “A strong defense litigator must be a person with the utmost character – someone judges and juries believe and can place their trust in you.” Since 1985, the firm’s attorneys have championed the interests of their corporate clients in the courtroom and as trusted business counselors. “We have a wideranging practice with a focus on South Florida,” says Mullen. “Our work ranges from risk management and lawsuit prevention to fighting and winning insurance bad faith claims on appeal. Our clients tend to be very loyal to our firm and some have been with us since we opened our doors.” AN EXPERIENCED TEAM

The equity partners at Gaebe, Mullen, Antonelli & DiMatteo collectively have spent more than a century representing businesses and insurers in all aspects of litigation. Overall, the firm has 19 attorneys, working together as a closely-knit team. “As we’ve grown, we’ve added quality people who can handle the most complex business cases,” says Mullen, who has been managing partner of the firm since 1988. “Our litigators can take a file at any point in a case, from pre-suit to just before a trial begins. We also have the business background to discuss the practical issues with the corporate client and 40

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

insured as well as the legal stakes. Ultimately, the client makes the decision how best to proceed with a case.” Mullen, who has tried more than 100 cases, was instrumental in expanding the firm’s base practice into the west coast of Florida, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties, and opening the West Palm Beach office. Today, his practice focuses on products liability, medical device litigation and professional liability – a field that’s grown in the past few years. “There is less resistance from plaintiff ’s lawyers to take on legal malpractice cases,” he adds. Noting that jury trials have diminished across the board, Mullen says: “We don’t try as many cases today as we did a decade ago. We believe in the continued importance of trial by jury and are educating the public about this basic right. Our society has a lot at stake in preserving our system of justice.” Greg Gaebe, founding partner of the firm, has tried more than 150 jury trials, and in one year alone, tried 15 cases to verdict. Known as a “defense lawyer’s lawyer,” Gaebe is a member of the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. In his practice, Gaebe handles products liability, bad faith insurance claims, legal malpractice, and catastrophic personal injury cases at both the trial and appellate levels. He has been involved in the defense of major tobacco cases, of Sabreliner in the ValuJet crash lawsuits and of Southland Company in a national class action for alleged Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations. “Little cases at the start can raise larger issues and become more complicated as time goes on,” says Gaebe, noting that partners Mark Antonelli and Devang Desai represented a Florida citrus grower in an international orange juice recall over salmonella, with Antonelli serving as national trial counsel. The firm has also defended clients in class actions ranging from diagnostic MRI scanning fees to insurance premium issues. Gaebe is often called on as an expert on bad faith, and has defended many individuals, corporate entities and insurance companies in catastrophic exposure cases. He also handles insurance coverage matters and defends municipalities in high exposure claims involving civil rights allegations. “We are diversifying our client base so we are not so heavily dependent on insurance-related business,” Gaebe says. “By reaching out to the business community, we are attracting major corporations looking for a mediumsize firm that can operate more efficiently than the bigger firms.” Partner Anthony DiMatteo, who leads the firm’s West Palm Beach office, concentrates his practice in the defense of insurance third-party claims as well as defending first-party lawsuits against insurance carriers. An experienced litigator at both the trial and appellate


PROMINENT LAW FIRMS

Devang Desai, Anthony DiMatteo, Mark Antonelli, Michael Mullen, Christienne Sherouse, Greg Gaebe and Christopher Moore

levels, DiMatteo has been with the firm since 1987. Coral Gables partner Mark Antonelli represents insured and self-insured clients in all aspects of civil litigation matters, with a primary emphasis in the personal injury and premises liability and negligent security claims. He also handles municipal liability defense cases, including police civil rights litigation. As a result of his participation in the defense of claims in the ValuJet crash lawsuits, Antonelli serves as South Florida trial counsel for a helicopter manufacturer. “Municipal liability litigation will always be present in South Florida,” says Antonelli. “Wrongful death and complex litigation are key parts of our practice because we are willing to take the time to do a full investigation. which frequently leads to significant evidence that helps our clients “ said Chris Moore, a partner in the firm’s West Palm Beach office, who handles wrongful death, premises liability, products liability, and construction law as well as coverage litigation. Antonelli and Desai also handle transactional work, including matters involving the purchase and sale of healthcare practices and large real estate ventures. One of the firm’s long-time clients is Johnson & Wales University in North Miami. “Back in 1992, we helped our client close on the site that became the start of their campus seven days after Hurricane Andrew,” recalls Antonelli. Christienne Sherouse, the firm’s first female equity partner, represents insurance companies in first-party litigation, advises insures on avoiding bad faith claims and represents a variety of businesses from armored car companies and auto dealerships to property owners and managers. In addition to defending her clients in litigation matters, she has won clients’ trust by guiding

them in developing ways to avoid the problems that lead to litigation in the first place. Gaebe adds that the firm’s clients benefit from having a mix of transaction and litigation services. “When drafting an agreement, you can appreciate the potential pitfalls of litigation and provide preventive rather than reactive advice.” LEADERSHIP IN AND OUT OF THE COURTROOM

One of the underlying values at Gaebe, Mullen, Antonelli & DiMatteo is leadership in the community as well as the legal profession. Antonelli is president of the South Florida Council of Boy Scouts of America, has coached youth sports in the past and is a past president of the Florida Defense Lawyers Association. He is among several members of the firm who attained the rank of Eagle Scout in their younger days. Desai, a partner in the Coral Gables office, serves as president of the University of Miami School of Law Alumni Association. “I enjoy that sense of connection with the university and working with a ‘hometown’ law firm in Coral Gables,” Desai adds. Sherouse is on the boards of Camillus House Young Leaders and Friends of the Everglades. Mullen has also stayed close to his alma mater, as a guest lecturer. He recently taught a seminar to UM law students about the importance of professionalism in treating clients, opposing counsel, judges and juries. Reflecting on that theme, Mullen advises tomorrow’s attorneys, “It’s all about how you handle yourself inside and outside the courtroom. Reputation is the biggest thing that a lawyer earns or doesn’t earn, and it’s something you carry with you forever.” 2013

Administrative Law Remedies – Going Outside

THE COMFORT ZONE

Whatever your area of practice, Florida administrative law can have a real life impact on your clients and their needs. In a myriad of arenas, from banking and insurance, to driver licenses and day care, administrative agencies promulgate rules, oversee compliance and enforce penalties on individuals and businesses. Most attorneys have little or no experience with administrative matters and consider such matters outside their “comfort zone.” Yet, identifying whether administrative action is necessary or preferable to traditional circuit court or appellate proceedings is a necessary component of effective advocacy. In determining options, it is critical to realize what constitutes agency action affecting a client’s “substantial interests” and what is the “point of entry” entitling your client to a hearing1. In some cases this is obvious; in others not so much. For example, rulemaking proceedings may “substantially affect” individuals, businesses and trade groups, yet few practitioners consider getting involved in such matters. Once it is determined that an administrative proceeding is the necessary course of action, the important differences between administrative proceedings and circuit court actions must be understood2. Administrative proceedings offer very short windows of time for entry into the process3. Moreover, failure to pursue administrative remedies may preclude later access to the courts due to “exhaustion” concerns4. Competitive procurements also require quick reaction. Prospective bidders should be made aware of the ability to invoke administrative remedies at all stages of the bid process. The time to “protest” a competitive procurement can come well before the bids are evaluated, as a vendor may need to appeal the specifications of the procurement instrument in order to ensure a fair process. Failure to file a “bid specification” protest may very well preclude the ability to later protest the intent to award the contract after the bids are evaluated5. In circuit court, pleadings can be lengthy and numerous. By contrast, the initial pleading under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA), which details how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected, explains issues of material fact, identifies applicable rules and regulations and requests an evidentiary or nonevidentiary hearing, may be the only pleading filed6. The Rules of Evidence are also different. Pursuant to Fla. Stat. § 120.57(1): Irrelevant, immaterial, or unduly repetitious evidence shall be excluded, but all other evidence of a type commonly relied upon by reasonably prudent persons in the conduct of their affairs shall be admissible, whether or not such evidence would be admissible in a trial in the courts of Florida. Any part of the evidence may be received in written form, and all testimony of parties and witnesses shall be made under oath. Hearsay is specifically permitted if it is used to supplement or explain other admissible evidence7. 134

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

Discovery can also be very fast paced in APA proceedings. In summary hearings and bid protests, the final hearing takes place within 30 days of assignment to an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ)8. Discovery must be completed prior to the final hearing and response dates can be as little as five calendar days. Finally, there may be no immediate ruling obtained at the close of the administrative proceeding. Rather, after receiving and reviewing proposed recommended orders from the parties, the ALJ will enter a “recommended” order containing findings of facts and conclusions of law, which is then sent to the agency for entry of a final order9. While administrative proceedings may seem foreign to the typical legal practitioner, their importance and efficacy should not be overlooked. Ignoring the available points of entry in the process may leave your client with substantially less options for redress. Effective advocacy compels litigators to pursue these less-traveled roads and ensure the best outcome for their clients.

Emotional Intelligence

MATTERS

In 2011, a sitting justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court wrapped his hands around a fellow justice’s neck after a profanity-laced diatribe in the heat of a disagreement. His defense: “It was a total reflex.” Practicing attorneys routinely witness similarly emotionally erratic behavior from colleagues, opposing counsel and occasionally even judges. For the most part, lawyers are smart – high IQs, good test-takers, solid analytical skills. Unfortunately, law school and the popular depiction of attorneys seems to alternate between glorifying emotional detachment (cold, critical, analysis) and romanticizing emotional volatility (You want the truth?! You can’t handle the truth!). And although corporate America has embraced the importance of emotional intelligence for about 20 years, the legal profession for the most part has lagged in recognizing that emotional intelligence is likely a far more predictive indicator of success in the legal profession than a high IQ. So what is emotional intelligence? It’s basically emotion management; both your emotions and the emotions of others (in our case, judges, clients and other attorneys). Daniel Goleman, who first popularized EI as a set of skills that drives leadership performance, breaks EI into five components: (i) self-awareness (understanding your own strengths and weaknesses); (ii) selfregulation (controlling impulses); (iii) social skill (managing relationships); (iv) empathy (considering the emotions of others); and (v) motivation (desire to achieve for the sake of achievement). Not surprisingly, highly emotionally intelligent people whose jobs are complex (such as ours) out-perform their emotionally less-intelligent peers by many orders of magnitude. This is borne out by the reality that clients hire attorneys based on attributes such as “ability to understand business needs and objectives;” “trusted advisor and not just a legal technician;” and “effective communicator.” Look at the rainmakers in your law firm – no doubt the vast majority would ace an emotional intelligence test. It’s not so hard to find a really smart lawyer. But our prospective clients are consistently on the lookout for a lawyer that has the “intangibles,” a much harder attribute to find on Google. As it turns out, emotional intelligence doesn’t only help with client relationships – it helps with colleagues too. Emotionally toxic workplaces (I’ve heard) are unpleasant. In his book “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, Patrick Lencioni opined that five triggers, each of which happen sequentially, will destroy a team. First, people do not trust their teammates and are working in a “defensive” posture. This next leads to a fear of conflict in which people (even litigators) refuse to engage in productive debate. Third, in avoiding conflict, there is no “buy-in” because people do not commit to the final decisions. In turn, there is a decrease in accountability because there is an absence of ownership over tasks. And finally, the results suffer. The collective goals of the team, which theoretically should be aligned with client goals, are lost, and results are not achieved. It is no coincidence that the attributes of someone

with high emotional intelligence – constructive communication, empathy, self-awareness – are inconsistent with the attributes of a dysfunctional team. I recently had the privilege of meeting Chade-Meng Tan, a Google engineer who wrote a book this year called “Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (and World Peace).” The purpose of the book is, as the title connotes, to achieve world peace. To do that, Meng (whose title at Google is – seriously – Jolly Good Fellow (Which Nobody Can Deny)) tells a story: Once upon a time in ancient China, a man on a horse rode past a man standing on the side of the road. The standing man asked, “Rider, where are you going?” The man on the horse answered, “I don’t know. Ask the horse.” Our emotions, Meng relates, is the horse. We tend to go where they tell us to. Regulating your emotions and being able to decipher the emotions of others is not just good for business; it helps promote world peace. Luckily, emotional intelligence can be learned. Meng suggests training emotional intelligence by training attention; and one way to train attention is through meditation. As Viktor Frankl said: “Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our happiness.” The ability to pause before reaction provides us with the necessary opportunity to regulate our “reflex.” Developing empathy among team members also will help a team’s emotional intelligence. Spending 30 Blackberry-free seconds (or more) learning about your colleagues is a good start, particularly if you are acting in a mentorship role. Applying emotional intelligence to your practice and dedicating yourself to the improvement of emotional intelligence will help you, your firm, and most importantly, your clients. And maybe, while I may not be as optimistic that improved emotional intelligence could lead to world peace, I am almost certain it will help the legal profession.

What’s in the fine print? Make sure you know

BEFORE YOU SIGN As the economy recovers, albeit slowly, the business community will increase the number of transactions involving buying and/ or selling of businesses for strategic purposes. These transactions present themselves in the form of acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures or the formation of new businesses. The real transaction, with its risks and pitfalls, is often buried in the minutia of the documents. Any transaction, in its final form, cannot be fully assessed without a complete understanding of the fine print or boilerplate clauses. That analysis is often neglected. Negotiators and drafters of documentation need to be sensitive to these risks planted within the deal documentation and fully acquaint their clients of the same. Many business planners and lawyers have departed from the traditional form of corporation and employ limited liability companies. The popularity of this business form is based on the favorable pass-through treatments these companies enjoy under the tax laws of the United States. Consequently, deals involving limited liability companies become tax driven. Often, the drafting of documents involves complex tax analysis that may result in the documentation departing from the contemplated transactions. Limited liability company transactions typically include the formation of a new LLC with an operating agreement between all of the members. The new company acquires assets from one member using cash contributed by another. An experienced transactional lawyer may understand the document, but fail to fully explain its nuances to the client and later find that failure to be basis for a malpractice claim. Typically the members of a limited liability company expect to be partners in the venture with the rights of governance as expressed within the operating agreement and related deal documents. However, these same documents very often include traps or complex clauses that alter the relationship. One example involves the typical financial member who will make commitments to meet the future funding requirements for operations. These funding requirements find their way into the agreement as capital contributions, and are credited to the member’s capital account. Conversely, there are guaranteed extra benefits (an increased share of the company) and preferences on profits or sales attached to these contributions, which may be buried in the documentation. Similarly, the member who has contributed his or her business to the new company may not receive a credit for the full value that the parties had agreed upon for that business. Sometimes this contribution is treated as inferior to the cash provided. This is particularly true if such values are included within the former business owner’s capital account only upon achieving EBITA performance milestones, and then may be very low on the list of actual distributions. On occasion, a close reading of the documents will reveal that that promised payment for the business being 136

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

contributed is so far down the distribution claim that it is unlikely be realized. In all events, the true payment price for the business must be based on what may actually be realized discounted back to the closing date. When fresh money is put into the company there may be stringent “pay to play” requirements. Failure to contribute fresh money may result in significant dilution to an existing interest. Similarly, there are often preferences in favor of later cash relative to whether the company will ever pay the amount promised for the original business. To understand what the client is truly getting, assuming you are involved in one of these transactions, a few basic questions should be asked. First, exactly how does the transaction work? What are the mechanics involved in receiving the credits or debits to a capital account? How much will the client actually be paid based upon formulas that have been agreed upon? Unless careful attention is paid to each one of these questions, a seller or buyer may be very disappointed. Unfortunately, the format of most of these transactions involves language that your client will not understand. Your “translation” of the complex instruments will be essential to assuring that the client gets what is bargained for rather than being a plaintiff in a malpractice case against you. If the instrument does not provide for a precise and clear methodology for payment of profits or on sale, the seller may not get what the seller thinks he or she should be getting and this will lead to a major dispute decided in the courtroom.

Is Your Expert or Opposing Expert Qualified?

PASSING THE DAUBERT TEST Choosing an expert to assist in a contentious litigation case in determining lost profits or lost business value is not an easy proposition. Is your expert or the opposing expert really an expert? The Daubert framework is quite clear: Testimony must be based on sufficient facts or data, must be reliable and appropriate application of accepted principles and methods to the facts. It is very important for an expert to have valuation and litigation credentials. Academic credentials are helpful, but to be qualified, “anyone with relevant expertise enabling him (or her) to offer responsible opinion testimony helpful to judge or jury may qualify as an expert witness”. Tuf Racing Prods., Inc. v. American Suzuki Motor Corp., 223 F.3d 585, 591 (7th Cir. 2000) Furthermore, even if a witness appears to be highly qualified, that witness “cannot waltz into the courtroom and render opinions unless those opinions are based upon some recognized scientific method and are reliable”. Clark v. Takata Corp. 192 F. 3d, 750, 759 n.5 (7th Cir. 1999). Experts should be performing litigation and valuation services on a full-time basis. Otherwise, it is difficult to acquire the relevant knowledge and expertise. Also, be wary of testifying experts, who are often not familiar with the details of the case. An expert is to provide an independent and objective opinion either for valuing a business interest or for determining the economic damages incurred by a damaging event and must comply with standards. The Statement on Standards for Valuation Services, SSVS No. 1, promulgated by the AICPA is an important one. However, many experts do not realize that there are two components to this standard: developmental provisions and reporting provisions. If the expert is preparing a business valuation for litigation purposes, then the expert must comply with the developmental provisions but does not need to comply with the reporting provisions. Additionally, if the expert is performing an economic damage calculation or a lost profits calculation, then the expert does not have to comply with SSVS No. 1. Reliability of the analysis through accepted methodologies is critical. Whether the expert’s opinion is correct or persuasive is not what the court is seeking. Rather, the court is “limited to determining whether ....... the methodology underlying that testimony is sound.” Deputy v. Lehman Bros., Inc., 345 F. 3d, 494, 505 (7th Cir. 2003). Relevant evidence is paramount. Too many experts do not properly demonstrate the reliability of their analysis, which in turn leads to witness exclusion. One area where witnesses fail to provide reliable testimony is with client forecasts. Simply because management has provided a forecast to the expert does not in itself validate the forecast. Most forecasts, by their very nature, include implied optimism, but may not be reflective of actualities that may result. Experts often fail to properly question the inherent assumptions contained in the forecast. For example, management may further complicate matters by preparing a plain “vanilla” forecast that lacks critical elements that a properly prepared

detailed forecast would include. However, even if properly prepared, assessing the likelihood of the forecast coming to fruition is vital. Fail-Safe, LLC v. A.O. Smith, 2010 U.S. Dist. Lexis 138686 (E.D. Wis.) (Dec. 23, 2010), a trade secrets case involving a pool pump motor, highlights the problems with experts as it pertains to forecasts. The experts relied on company data without independent verification, prepared their own projections based upon faulty management assumptions that were unrealistic, used insufficient data, and failed to do a competitive assessment of the forecast. Needless to say, the judge did not have fond words for the experts in this case. We too often see experts “cherry picking” selective facts they deem applicable. A proper analysis will consider all facts, both positive and negative to the case. There are so many elements included in an analysis for lost business value or lost profits, including the earnings base and the discount rate. Taking an aggressive and incorrect stance on many of these variables has a multiplicative effect on the results and creates a great disparity between expert opinions, thus encouraging trial rather than settlement. Above all, the relevancy of the expert testimony must be on point. Often, the expert will obtain guidance from counsel ensuring that all conclusions are relevant to the cause of action. The court ultimately will decide on whether an expert can provide testimony. It is a lot easier to lose a case than win a case. Thorough analysis of client assumptions, detailed application of appropriate methodology and proper consideration of key factors, will reflect favorably on the expert.

The Clock is Ticking for

HIGH-NET-WORTH INDIVIDUALS The most favorable estate and gift tax laws in recent history are set to expire after the end of the year, and for high-net-worth individuals, the time for action is now. For those that have unrealized capital gains in any asset, there may never be a better time to realize those gains, diversify portfolios or otherwise redeploy proceeds from asset sales. This is likely the last, best chance to reposition and update one’s financial and estate plans on a tax-favored basis and to avail oneself of unprecedented planning opportunities. The government needs revenue. Income taxes, capital gains and estate gift taxes are all in play, and are almost certain to increase. The election is over, and the status quo has been maintained leaving the fiscal cliff looming. Therefore, if major changes in one’s portfolio are warranted, taking action in 2012 is advisable. THESE ARE MAJOR AREAS TO CONSIDER:

Tax Rates. Assuming no change in the tax law, long-term capital gains will rise from 15 percent to 20 percent and qualified dividends lose their special status, which will result in the dividends being subject to ordinary income tax rates. The maximum income tax rate will climb from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. What’s more, in 2013, a healthcare surtax of up to 3.8 percent on investment income will take effect. Investment income is generally classified as capital gains, dividends, interest, annuity payments, royalties and rents. The healthcare surtax on investment income will generally apply to individuals with a gross income greater than $200,000 and married couples with combined gross incomes greater than $250,000. As a result, in 2013, many “wealthy” taxpayers will incur a longterm capital gains rate of 23.8 percent rather than the present 15 percent, unless Congress deems otherwise. So tax efficiency – or seeking investments that minimize tax consequences – will once again be in vogue. It will be critical to pay attention to tax efficiency as well as how the assets are titled and which type of account (taxable or non-taxable) owns a particular investment asset. Gifts. Today’s low interest rates and the high estate/gift tax exemption afford tremendous wealth/asset transfer opportunities for the rest of the year. This favorable environment allows highnet-worth individuals and business owners the opportunity to pass significant amounts of wealth/assets to anyone of their choice, free of gift and estate taxes. Without a change in the estate and gift tax law, the estate tax exemption in 2013 will revert to the 2002 exemption amount, resulting in more individual’s estates being subject to estate tax. Both the estate and gift tax exemption amounts will decline from $5.12 million for an individual to $1 million and the maximum estate tax and gift rates will increase from 35 percent to 55 percent. Using assets that have the potential to appreciate (i.e. business interests, commercial property, etc.) maximizes the leverage and 138

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

opportunities in gifting strategies. Moreover, because generally assets have depreciated over the last several years, utilizing such depreciated assets in gifting strategies is attractive. Securities sales. In 2011, a provision requiring investors to adopt a consistent cost basis for valuing any securities they sold became effective. The new rule took effect for stocks and exchange traded funds bought and sold in 2011 and also applies to mutual funds bought and sold in 2012. The cost basis that is commonly used by investors is the average per-share price of all purchases of the same security. While this choice is a n easy option, it often does not qualify for the best tax treatment on securities sales. To minimize taxes, it is often better to sell either the cheapest or most expensive shares. If the market value of the security has declined, when it is sold you may wish to use a cost basis that allows you to sell the lowest-cost shares. But if your investments have appreciated, selling your highest-cost shares can minimize your taxes. In conclusion, the United States government is facing shortfalls in revenues while governmental expenditures are escalating. That means taxes across the board will be increasing. We are confident beginning in the year 2013 and for years to come, U.S. taxpayers will have a higher tax rate structure and fewer and lower exemptions than in 2012. Therefore, high-net-worth individuals and high-income earners should consult with their financial adviser, CPA or attorney before year-end.

Mitigation of Damages in

LOST PROFITS DAMAGES The duty of mitigation requires that the plaintiff take appropriate actions to overcome the damage purportedly caused by the defendant1. The plaintiff is generally not permitted to recover damages that were foreseeable and could have been avoided by their reasonable efforts without causing undue expense or risk. In other words, the amount of earnings lost as a result of the plaintiff ’s failure to mitigate its own damages would likely not be recoverable2. Although the defendant may argue that the plaintiff could have mitigated its damages beyond the steps that it took, the plaintiff only needs to show that it took reasonable steps to mitigate its damages3. It does not need to show that it took all of the steps that the defendant may assert should have been taken4. It is up to the trier of fact to decide if the mitigation efforts of the plaintiff were reasonable and sufficient. The plaintiff ’s ability to mitigate is dependent upon several factors, which may include but are not limited to the following: Plaintiff ’s financial ability to mitigate. Mitigation of damages may not be possible if the plaintiff is financially unable to accomplish it. Thecosttomitigateascomparedtotheeconomicdamagessuffered by the plaintiff. If the cost to mitigate is greater than the economic damage suffered as a result for the defendant’s breach, it may not be possible for the plaintiff to mitigate the damages5. Reasonable expenses incurred in an effort to mitigate damages, even if plaintiff ’s efforts are unsuccessful, are typically recoverable damages. The period of recovery for lost profits must be reasonable and may be influenced by the plaintiff ’s actions to mitigate6. Additionally, in some instances, the plaintiff may receive certain tax benefits from the losses they may have incurred as a result of the defendant’s actions. These benefits could be in the form of tax losses, which can be used to offset positive income in future periods7. This concept of mitigation is best illustrated by the following examples. The first example, involves a claim of tortious business interference between two companies arising from the actions of a former disgruntled employee. As an expert for the plaintiff, one would be required to collect information as to sales that occurred after the event of the employee’s termination which provided evidence of the decline in sales. The plaintiff expert should also challenge whether the decline in sales were due directly from the former employer’s actions or whether there were other intervening factors that caused a decline in sales such as a general market or economic downturn in the industry. As a rebuttal expert in this case, the professional would have to analyze and scrutinize any decline in sales to determine whether such declines in sales related to the former employee’s conduct or whether there were intervening events. In addition, a rebuttal expert should also be sensitive to lost profit claims that exceeded the financial capacity (i.e. working capital and liquidity) of the company to achieve. Another example where mitigation of damages occurs is in

employment discrimination cases. Although wrongfully terminated, the plaintiff has the responsibility to mitigate his/her salary losses by recruiting for and obtaining a replacement job. Expert issues related to mitigation of damages under employment discrimination cases will include comparability of position, level of effort expended in recruiting for a new position, and the full compensation package, including fringe benefits and perquisites. Mitigation of damage expert testimony can drastically reshape any damage claim that is asserted by a plaintiff. Careful analysis of such claims and the relevant economic and evidentiary facts must be undertaken as part of an expert’s analysis and report.

Choose Carefully When

MAKING A REFERRAL Before making a referral to another attorney, be sure to take a moment or two and think about the potential consequences. If the other attorney does a poor job for the client, you could find yourself having to defend your action in a negligent referral or legal malpractice claim. That’s what happened to a Miami attorney in a high-profile personal injury case – Noris v. Silver, 701 So. 2d 1238 (Fla. 3d DCA 1997). Noris was injured in Chicago when a vehicle struck his bicycle. He contacted Silver, a Miami attorney who had previously represented him in two legal matters. Silver told Noris he did not handle personal injury cases and made a referral to attorney Falk, who in the past had paid Silver a share of any fee recovered in these types of cases in consideration for the referrals. Noris hired Falk, who failed to settle the suit within the Illinois two-year statute of limitations. After that unhappy outcome, Noris sued Falk for legal malpractice and Silver for legal malpractice and negligent referral. Even through Falk and Silver had not signed a written agreement to divide the attorney fees, the court found that there was an implied agreement and that Silver was legally responsible for the malpractice committed by Falk. To avoid defending themselves in these time-consuming and expensive actions, South Florida attorneys should do their homework prior to making a referral to another lawyer to handle a criminal trial, civil litigation or business or personal transaction. One of the best ways to refer your client to an appropriate lawyer, while minimizing your legal risk, is to conduct a thorough due diligence process. Take the time to review the experience and credentials of the attorney before considering a possible referral. For example, you might look to see if the attorney is board certified and has a high rating from third-party services like MartindaleHubbell or Avvo.com. Has the attorney been recognized by his or her peers in legal publications listing top attorneys? Is the attorney active in Bar organizations or associations in the specialty field of their practice? Does the attorney teach legal workshops or seminars? Does the attorney write in the field or author scholarly publications? If the answer is yes to these types of questions, you are on safe grounds in making a referral – regardless of the outcome of the matter. On the other hand, you should think hard about making referrals to an attorney who has been disciplined by The Bar or has a string of complaints on his or her record. That’s a red flag for a plaintiff ’s attorney seeking a reason to drag you into a malpractice case. It’s also a bad idea to refer clients to a friend or family member, unless that attorney has impeccable credentials. Again, if there is a legal malpractice case, the first thing the plaintiff will allege is that your referral was determined by personal considerations. In the words of the old saying, “No good deed goes unpunished.” When doing due diligence, you should also check to see if the attorney carries legal malpractice insurance and even ask for a copy 140

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2013

of that policy. Having a carrier to defend a case can take a huge burden off your shoulders as the referring attorney. There are some other steps you can take to reduce your potential liability for a negligent referral. First, you can refer to a trusted specialist with superior credentials. Second, you could refer your client to a local bar association. Under the law, bar associations and legal referral services are not subject to negligent referral claims – unlike individual attorneys. Another approach is to provide the client a list of three or four attorneys that have excellent credentials. Then, the client can decide which – if any – of those attorneys to hire. Regardless of how you handle a referral request, you should document your actions and send a note to your client as well. It takes just a few minutes to summarize your conversation and the nature of your referral in a document that could become an “insurance policy” in the future. Be sure that your staff understands your referral policy as well, so that they don’t overstep their roles and create a potential problem Remember that any time you take a referral or participation fee from another attorney, you are “on the hook” for the case. If the client is happy with the outcome, you can go out and celebrate together. But if an unhappy client files a malpractice or negligent referral suit, you can expect to see each other as codefendants in court.

The Impact of ACOs

ON OUR HEALTH SYSTEM Healthcare providers are seeing sweeping changes in the way they administer care to patients as a result of the emergence of accountable care organizations. The Obama administration sought to reform the existing healthcare model with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”). The hope was that it would become a viable and accountable system for delivering accessible and affordable healthcare. Accountable care organizations (ACOs) hope to achieve that by reinventing the way healthcare providers associate, treat patients, and receive compensation. An ACO is comprised of a group of providers who organize themselves to take on the shared responsibility of administering care to a group of patients while seeking to improve quality of care, lowering of healthcare costs, and increased access to care. ACO providers are reimbursed by federally funded welfare programs, such as Medicare. ACOs provide certain regulatory advantages to participating providers. The Federal Self Referral law – commonly known as the “Stark law” generally waives prohibition for distribution of shared savings for ACO participants, and for providers’ activities that are related to the ACO. However, providers are not necessarily immune from anti-kickback law violations as participants in an ACO. Under an ACO, provider members are generally to be reimbursed based on the quality of care they provide their patients. ACOs’ shared savings may be shared annually as a bonus, so long as they meet the requirements in the quality metrics. Providers are to be reimbursed according to the following quality metrics: (1) patient satisfaction; (2) safety; (3) preventative treatment; (4) care coordination; (5) at-risk population. Providers working with the elderly for example, will not be penalized because they treat patients with more advanced conditions. Providers will be impacted by the development of ACOs throughout the country. On January 1, 2013, the Medicare bundled payment program will begin and the increased Medicaid payments for primary care doctors will take effect. Under the ACO model, providers are incentivized to work together. Earlier coordinating from initial doctor’s offices visits to long-term care facilities may become the norm. Additionally, there is hope that because ACOs may largely be run by groups of providers, the cost-quality communications gap between providers and the boardroom may finally be bridged. There are, however, downsides for providers participating in ACOs. Transitioning from a solely fee-for-service model to qualitybased reimbursement may be difficult for some providers. Providers in private practice will face financial pressure due to increased overhead and a decrease in reimbursement. Additionally, providers may also experience an increase in regulatory restrictions. Further, over the years, providers will see varying reimbursements because ACOs are still in their infancy. The Secretary of Health and Human Services wields much discretion in how the providers will be

reimbursed over time. The change in reimbursement may take away some of the control providers have over how they are paid. The ACO model is not without controversy. Some providers may argue that it is not always in their power to control quality measures leading to readmissions because patients often misunderstand directions, fail to take medications, don’t seek physical therapy, etc. Further, some may argue that ACOs may contribute to fewer providers choosing areas of practice like primary care; provider shortages and misdistribution; and changing workplace and lifestyle expectations. Whatever one’s view of ACOs and their coming impact, providers will likely limit the number of tests they order from specialists that are costly and instead may be incentivized to come up with other solutions to reduce overutilization and overuse of expensive technology that contributes to significant healthcare expense because such tests and technologies are so interconnected with their reimbursement. Further, providers may use more holistic approaches to diagnosing and treating patients at the primary care level. Recent graduates might find this difficult, because many medical schools heavily rely on the use of technology and testing in order to diagnose and treat patients. In summary, as with every major market sea-change, providers will need to educate themselves about ACOs and the changes they will bring, in order to keep their seat at the negotiating table. ACO membership is growing in size, and the number of ACOs in Florida is increasing. Providers need to carefully consider what ACOs will mean for their practices, for the treatment they administer, and the reimbursement they will receive for services rendered.

Law Firm Crisis Communications & Reputation Management:

ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NOT IF, BUT WHEN Imagine a television producer or print journalist calls your ďŹ rm seeking a comment about news of a clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest for fraud, or a partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s malfeasance, or a practice area teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defection to another ďŹ rm. Caught on the ďŹ&#x201A;y, would the receptionist know to whom such calls should be steered? Would a partner know how â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or even whether â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to answer the reporterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questions? Would those not authorized to speak know to hold their tongues? This is crisis communications. And, far too few professionals are sufďŹ ciently versed in how to conduct themselves in the face of a reporterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call. The problem is that handling a crisis should be required knowledge. The 24-hour news cycle of yesteryear has been replaced by a 10-minute cycle fueled by blogs, news site updates, and even Facebook posts and Twitter tweets. In this hyper-competitive environment, sources could unwittingly hurt their own cause by not ďŹ rst considering the long-term implications of a question poorly answered. Once one bad quote hits the airwaves, newsprint or the Internet, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s irretrievable. Crisis communications and reputation management is the practice of preparing for the possibility, even likelihood, that something will befall the ďŹ rm or an attorney. As any criminal defense or white collar attorney knows, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not whether the accusations are true. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the courts to decide. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how the matter is handled in the court of public opinion. The goal in crisis communications is to address the problem openly, with appropriate, honest responses delivered swiftly. CREATING A CRISIS MANAGEMENT PLAN

Central to successfully navigating this arena is the crisis communications plan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that plan starts at the top. One person should be appointed to spearhead crisis communications. The plan outlines what â&#x20AC;&#x153;spokespersonâ&#x20AC;? is preapproved to speak for the ďŹ rm to the media, who is on the response team, how responses will be formulated, and even how the ďŹ rmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social media will be utilized. Having one spokesperson is vital. By establishing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;single voiceâ&#x20AC;? for the ďŹ rm, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to ensure that the comments and information ďŹ&#x201A;ow are consistent and the ďŹ rm is positioned in the best possible light. How will the ďŹ rm respond? A response can take the form of a press release to the media or a phone call to individual reporters or editors with whom the ďŹ rm has built a trusted relationship. That outreach could be followed by a post to the ďŹ rmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blog and newsroom, followed by and an update to its Facebook and/or linkedin page and a tweet. ROLE-PLAY AND CRISIS SCENARIOS

Once the hierarchy and general response mechanisms are in place, the ďŹ rm and its public relations team then create and perform roleplay scenarios for several possible situations. The goal is to mitigate risk by improving how responses are handled. 142

Commercial Lending in an

ARTIFICIAL LIQUIDITY CRUNCH Our banks are sitting on unprecedented amounts of nonproductive lending capital. Governments at all levels wants them to lend. Lending is one of two necessary ingredients for ending our current moribund economic condition. There is a cyclical quality to all of this. The wonder is how this cycle is the “surprise” with which it is treated. Studies of economic history reveal that this current cycle is worse than many earlier ones with the exception of the “Great Depression” of the 1920s and 1930s. The Great Depression was preceded by securities speculation, a housing bubble, speculative building and speculative lending. The Glass-Steagle Act was authorized by Congress to prevent the banking excesses that strengthened and lengthened the effect of the Great Depression. Under pressure of the finance sector, Congress repealed the Glass-Steagle Act during the administration of President Bill Clinton, opening the floodgates to another round of speculative banking, wiping out economic gains made after its passage and causing a real estate-led recession. So, why are banks slow to release capital into the private sector? Depending on their ownership structure, banks answer to competing interests. Publicly held as well as closely held banks answer to shareholders and regulators and have a fiduciary responsibility to depositors. In general, the banking industry is smarting from the losses caused by its most recent 15-year-round of imprudent behavior. It has returned to its historic lending roots. Public complaints regarding a liquidity deficit are fairly widespread. Access to home equity loans (in a housing market awash with “underwater” existing loans and foreclosures) is practically nonexistent. What do banks require from closely held company borrowers in the current lending environment? The same things they required prior to the securities bubble of the 1990s and the real estate bubble of 2000 through 2007/8: 1. Collateral that is as close to cash in liquidity as possible. 2. Reliable first source of cash flow repayment (have a well-paying job). 3. Reliable secondary source of cash flow repayment (have a well-paying secondary source of income). 4. Credit score and credit history of the business owners. 5. Strong personal financial statement(s) in the case of a closely held business owner. 6. Business plan that: (A) Clearly describes the borrowing business, (B) Acceptably describes the use of funds, and (C) Clearly describes the industry of the borrower. (D) Includes published industry comparisons and data for the local geographic area. The first five requirements are self-explanatory. The last requirement of a business plan needs to be fleshed out a bit more. Bankers frequently say that the loan documents supplied to them by borrowers are not written for banker acceptability. A business plan is not merely wishful thinking put to paper. It is a “treasure map” that requires periodic refinement as conditions change. It ought to be written with bankers in mind.

If used for acquiring startup financing, it requires an approach grounded in well-researched projected revenues, budgeted start-up costs, costs of depreciable and amortizable assets, costs of ongoing operations, debt servicing and projected income tax effects. Support for the projections should accompany the business plan. A five-year plan is recommended by many authors, usually accompanied with a warning about the virtual impossibility of projecting out more than three years with an acceptable degree of accuracy. The same requirements, plus additional ones, exist when preparing for mezzanine financing or financing by an already existing business entity. Historical financial statements with a healthy profit, cash flow and debt service ratio and comparable entity federal income tax return copies for at least three years are added to the previously mentioned business plan, as well as personal financial statements and individual income tax returns for the shareholder officer(s) of the entity. A comparison of the existing entity’s results with published industry results for the geographic area is a welcome part of a loan package and business plan. Lenders view some industries and sectors more favorably than others. Startup dentistry is a good example. Under limited circumstances, lenders make 100 percent loan-to-value credit available for practices being acquired or started by young dentists with at least several years of clinical experience under their belts. Apparently, dentistry has one of the lowest loan default rates in the economy (as low as 1 percent). This is in spite of the fact that the average dental student graduates from dental school with approximately $250,000 of student loan debt. Of course this favorable assessment can easily dry up when, after a number of years in practice, a practitioner’s economic house out of order through maintaining a style of living in excess of disposable income.
