Kaye Scholer LLP is pleased to announce the second anniversary of its Tallahassee Operations Center. The Center, which opened its doors in June of 2013, now has 100 professionals executing critical firmwide services such as finance, accounting, document processing, legal research, marketing, human resources and IT.
“We are proud of the success achieved by our colleagues at the Center in such a short time, as well as our increasingly close-knit ties with the Tallahassee community,” said Kaye Scholer’s Managing Partner Mike Solow. “The firm is appreciative for the support it receives from the Center and is delighted to wish the staff a happy second anniversary.”
Kaye Scholer launched the Tallahassee Operations Center in response to an evolving legal industry. Rising costs, coupled with greater competition, inspired the firm to find more effective and efficient ways to support its lawyers in the delivery of legal services. The Center facilitates Kaye Scholer’s hybrid approach to support service, with some functions operating from the practice offices and others provided from Tallahassee by dedicated professionals. This collaboration, bolstered by a state-of-the-art technology infrastructure, has the double benefit of significantly improving service while reducing expenses.
In the two years since the Center’s launch, it has met or exceeded its financial performance goals. In addition, the office has developed strong relationships with the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce and other local organizations. Kaye Scholer is also now working with state and local universities to develop a pipeline program for future recruiting candidates.
“We are pleased to have Kaye Scholer as a member of the Tallahassee community,” said Mayor Andrew Gillum. “The firm offers many valuable professional opportunities that can help our city and its residents build a better future.”
