Chicago Managing Partner Scott Meyers on Akerman’s Continued Growth

by: Astor Professional Search

Managing partner of Akerman’s Chicago office, Scott Meyers, sat down with Crain’s to discuss the firm’s growth strategy.

Akerman, a mid-sized, full-service firm based out of Miami, opened their Chicago office two years ago with eight lawyers, which has since grown a team of 45 attorneys.

Meyers tells Crain’s that he “never imagined [they] would be able to grow as quickly as [they] have,” but says that they won’t put a goal date on their plan of doubling in size.  He explains that they are “optimistic enough” that they will “find enough wedge into the market” (as quoted in Crain’s).

Meyers points out that Akerman has managed to accomplish the same goal in New York, where their office has grown to nearly one hundred attorneys.  “As I always tell my litigators,” he adds, “don’t tell people when you can show people” (as quoted in Crain’s).
