Five attorneys jump ship for rival firm
TAMPA — Five attorneys have left the Tampa office of law firm of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick to join Trenam Law, also based in the Tampa Bay region.
Attorneys C. Graham Carothers Jr., Timothy Hughes, Gregory-Scott Haney and Cate Wells join Trenam as shareholders, while Mathew Poling comes aboard as an associate, according to a press release. The five lawyers specialize in real estate and land use; three of them — Carothers, Hughes and Haney — will work at Trenam’s St. Petersburg office, the release states, with Wells splitting time between Tampa and St. Pete.
Carothers states in the release that choosing to leave Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick “was not an easy decision to make.” He adds, “We have practiced at Shumaker for many years and have formed many great relationships there. I am confident, however, that my colleagues and I will be happy at Trenam, and that our clients will be, as well.”
