Located downtown in the historic River City, McGuireWoods’ Jacksonville office —which sits on the banks of the St. Johns River — is uniquely situated to serve clients throughout the state of Florida and southeast Georgia. The present-day Jacksonville office incorporates the legal experience and talents resulting from mergers with several prestigious legacy firms, including Mahoney Adams & Criser, which was one of the longest continuously operating firms in Florida, and one of the largest in Jacksonville (1998); and Martin, Ade, Birchfield & Mickler, P.A. (2001).
As the gateway to the Sunshine State, Jacksonville is a leading intermodal transportation hub for port and air cargo facilities, as well as interstate trucking and railways.
For many decades, we have been privileged to serve some of North Florida’s leading institutions, including major financial institutions, leading railroad companies, local hospitals, charitable and philanthropic foundations, and higher-education institutions.
Because of the diverse needs of our clients and businesses in the region, the Jacksonville office has assembled a core group of lawyers with extensive experience in public finance, federal and state securities laws, environmental safety and health, and complex commercial and financial services litigation. In addition, our lawyers practice in the areas of labor and employment law; mergers and acquisitions; corporate governance; real estate and land use, including the acquisition, management and disposition of distressed real estate assets and loans; and restructuring and insolvency.
Demonstrating the firm’s commitment to McGuireWoods’ core values, which include service to our clients and the communities in which we live and work, the lawyers and staff of the Jacksonville office proudly and actively participate and support local civic and charitable organizations.
