In a recent article featured in the Florida Business Observer, Tampa managing shareholder Bill Schifino Jr. and Bruce Lamb were highlighted in their respective leadership roles with the firm. The article showcases the importance Gunster places on a collegial, team mentality and its strategic plan for growth.
The article acknowledged that Gunster positions its attorneys as thought leaders and connectors of key stakeholders and policy makers on important issues across Florida. By positioning attorneys as experts in their field, Lamb says,“it’s a great way to build your profile and provide a service to your clients and to the public, generally.”
Gunster has a strong record of growth and its focus on recruiting top-tier talent in the Tampa Bay region and beyond is referenced in the article.
Shifino stated, “Our goal is to serve the business community,” he says, “but you can’t be a statewide player without having a strong, vibrant foothold in the Bay area market.
The editor points out the advantage for clients is the firm’s approach to staffing matters by using the best team for the client, without regard for where that individual is physically located. “It’s a very tight employment market. Fortunately, for Gunster, we tend to attract talent, but it’s about making sure we have the right team players,” Schifino says.
