Greenberg Traurig, LLP welcomed 2019 by adding a 30th office in the United States — its 39th worldwide. Opening the firm’s office in Minneapolis, MN, is finance and restructuring attorney Michael B. Fisco, who will serve as the Managing Shareholder. Joining Fisco are shareholders Michael M. Krauss, a former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Arleen A. Nand, who served as the U.S. Head of Agricultural Finance for DLA Piper, prior to joining Greenberg Traurig. All join from the local office of DLA Piper.

“The Twin Cities region is aligned with Greenberg Traurig’s client goals and our focus on business, innovation, diversity, quality of life, and serving the community,” said Brian L. Duffy, Greenberg Traurig Chief Executive Officer. “We are fortunate to be able to enter this dynamic market with a team that has strong local and regional history, as well as the legal experience and passion for excellence that clients demand. We are known for waiting patiently to find the right time, place, and people to open new offices, as we did with this opportunity, and we are very pleased with the result.”
