09 July 2014 Law360 News


Foley was featured in a profile published on July 9, 2014, as part of Law360’s “Florida Powerhouses” series recognizing seven law firms that have a sizeable presence in Florida and significant regional accomplishments over the past two years. 

Jacksonville Office Managing Partner Kevin Hyde was quoted saying, "We have very deep Florida roots with all of the lawyers. We obviously are part of a larger firm, but we very much see ourselves as a Florida firm and act like that collectively."

Regarding Foley’s strong Latin America, immigration and litigation practices, Miami Office Managing Partner William Davis said, "Miami is just an economy that is fairly substantial and is growing significantly, and we've sort of grown with it."

Key Florida client successes highlighted include:

  • Helping the Mormon church become the largest private landowner in Florida
  • Representing Acosta Sales and Marketing Co. in more than 15 acquisitions in connection with a roll-up in the food service industry
  • Serving as lead counsel for the controlling shareholders of Ecuadorean bank Banco de la Produccion SA (known as Produbanco) in the sale of a controlling interest to Promerica Financial Corp., which occurred after two years of negotiations and was the first sale of an Ecuadorean bank to foreign investors since the South American country tightened banking regulations in 2012
  • Representing Community Blood Centers of Florida Inc., Florida's Blood Centers Inc. and Florida Blood Services Inc. in their merger to become OneBlood Inc. – creating the second-largest blood bank in the country, second only to the American Red Cross
