A well-known Tampa-based law firm plans to expand its operations in South Florida with the acquisition of a 12-lawyer Fort Lauderdale boutique.
Among the attorneys who will be joining Fowler White Boggs from Atkinson Diner Stone Mankuta & Ploucha are a former Florida Bar president, Jesse Diner, and a former state attorney general, Robert Butterworth, the Am Law Daily reports.
Together, the merged firms will have 143 lawyers.
A Fowler White press release says the merger will take place in the first half of 2012.
