Background & Values

The firm was founded in July 2012 by experienced corporate and business lawyers who practiced together for many years at a major global firm. In establishing ADS, the founders sought to create a corporate and business law firm focused on serving private clients and middle-market participants in domestic and cross-border matters as an alternative to the traditional full-service leveraged firm. The firm’s senior lawyers are all experienced transactional practitioners, and a number of them are recognized by the highly esteemed Chambers & Partners, as well as other organizations, including The American College of Real Estate Lawyers, for their professional accomplishments. The professional recognition individually received by members of our team can be referenced in their respective biographies. Our firm is minority-owned and is a member of the National Association of Minority and Women-Owned Law Firms. We have lawyers who are licensed to practice in Florida and New York. Our lawyers are active in The Florida Bar, the New York State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, the Key Biscayne Bar Association, and the Florida Association of Women Lawyers, among other legal groups. Many of our lawyers also hold leadership positions in various community, religious and nonprofit organizations.
