In a management shuffle announced Wednesday, Greenberg Traurig has promoted Miami shareholder Hilarie Bass to co-president, making her one of the highest-ranking women at a major U.S. law firm.
Bass moves up from global operating shareholder. She shares the presidency with Brian L. Duffy, a Denver shareholder who has been global litigation chair.
Cesar L. Alvarez and Matt Gorson move to co-chairs from executive chair and president, respectively.
Firm CEO Richard Rosenbaum also named four vice presidents:
Ernest Greer, managing shareholder of the Atlanta office, who is African-American.
Brad Kaufman, a West Palm Beach shareholder and co-chair of national securities litigation and leader of the firm's associate development program.
Patricia Menendez-Cambo, a Miami shareholder who serves as chair of the global practice and co-chair of the infrastructure and project finance practice.
Keith Shapiro, chair of the Chicago office and co-chair of the business reorganization practice.
Larry Hoffman's title also changes from to founding chair from chair.
In a statement, Rosenbaum said, "Change will occur in an orderly manner over several years. We are pleased to have so many talented leaders and performers, not just those with titles. I am sure this evolving team will be as strong as those that have preceded us and have the same level of friendship, trust and affection among each other as has always defined Greenberg's leadership team since 1967."
