Gunster, one of Florida’s oldest and largest commercial law firms, has expanded its statewide footprint yet again.

The firm’s newest office opened in Key Largo, in the Ocean Reef Club, on August 1.

Attorney Timothy Thomes will anchor this office and focus on business litigation, estate planning and real estate law. Premier Title Company, an affiliate of Gunster, also has a presence in this new office.

“This latest expansion to the Florida Keys will further solidify Gunster’s well-deserved reputation as Florida’s law firm for business,” said H. William Perry, Gunster’s managing shareholder. “With 10 offices across the state, our clientele has access to our full spectrum of services in nearly every market in Florida.”

Gunster has grown over the past three years – in contrast to downsizing that has taken place elsewhere in the legal services market.

In 2011, Gunster established an office in Tampa, and significantly expanded its presence in Jacksonville. Also in 2011, the firm expanded its Miami practice with the addition of six attorneys who contribute to the firm’s international business litigation, real estate, and environmental and land use practice areas.
