Two executive compensation and employee benefits partners are among 12 attorneys who left Reed Smith to open a Philadelphia office for Holland & Knight.
They are John Martini, who will serve as the executive partner of the Philadelphia office, and Kelly Bley, whose practice focuses on tax-qualified retirement plans.
The firm opened the office to be “close to our clients,” Martini told Bloomberg Law. “We’re growing very quickly,” he said. “The office will be full service,” and Martini anticipates “more worklaw lawyers joining in Philadelphia.”
Holland & Knight said the Philadelphia office is its 25th in the U.S.
