TAMPA — Law firm Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney will bid farewell to Rhea Law, shareholder and chairwoman of the firm’s Florida offices, at the end of the year.
Law, whose illustrious legal career spans four decades, will remain in an of-counsel role with the firm, according to a press release.
“I’ve had the opportunity to accomplish countless professional and personal goals and have loved every minute of my legal career,” Law states in the release. “Entering this new exciting chapter, I fully intend to continue and expand my passions in education, economic development and public and private boards whose work is focused on building and improving the state I love.”
She adds, “I’ve been lucky to work alongside Florida’s best lawyers and am very grateful to firm leadership and my colleagues for their support and encouragement.”
Over the course of her long career, Law became one of the most prominent and respected business leaders in the Tampa Bay area, holding top leadership positions with the Florida Council of 100; Tampa Bay Partnership; Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp; Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce; University of South Florida; Stetson University College of Law; and others.
“Rhea is not only a pillar of the Tampa Bay community and beyond, but also of our Buchanan family,” states Joseph Dougherty, Buchanan’s CEO, in the release. “She has been a mentor and a friend to many and an incredible force as an attorney.”
