Martinez-Fraga and Ryan Reetz Jump Ship to Squire Sanders
More defections at Greenberg Traurig, as prominent international litigators Pedro Martinez-Fraga and C. Ryan Reetz depart for Squire Sanders.
This is a big loss for Greenberg, which is reeling from the hangover of its exponential expansion and also from dealing with numerous legal, regulatory and conflicts issues (disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff didn't help much, either).
Can you imagine trying to do a conflicts check at that place nowadays?
Other prominent recent defections include longtime corporate partner Dan Aronson to Bilzen Sumberg, and international real estate partner Joe Hernandez to Hogan Hartson.
Anyway, congratulations to Pedro and Ryan, who are great litigators and make a powerhouse team wherever they decide to hang their hat.
