But some in legal circles believe that more statewide firms will scout opportunities in Southwest Florida because of changing demographics and increased business activity. “I think there’s going to be a greater provision of sophisticated legal services,” says Robert Bulloch, the managing partner for the Naples office of Quarles & Brady.
While large, Florida-based firms might have a dominant presence in many Florida cities, Midwest-based firms have traditionally filled that role in Southwest Florida.
Quarles & Brady has its roots in Milwaukee, but it followed clients to Naples because they needed estate-planning services when they wintered here. Now, the firm has 20 attorneys in Naples who provide a wide range of legal services beyond estate planning, including corporate representation.
