Greenberg Traurig Bosses Take Office Road Trip in RV
The firm’s CEO and executive chairman will visit each of their offices in the US in a bid to reconnect with staff.
Richard Rosenbaum and Brian Duffy, respective executive chairman and CEO of Greenberg Traurig, have embarked on a road trip to visit each of the firm’s 30 US offices.
Rosenbaum and Duffy are sleeping in a 2020 Winnebago View 24V as they tour the country, hosting events for colleagues in each Greenberg Traurig office they come to.
In an interview with Law.com, the pair explained that the objective of the road trip is to reconnect with the firm’s staff after a year of remote working – and to thank them for their record-setting work during that time.
“We truly are a family and the past year has been difficult with regard to not being able to collaborate in person,” Rosenbaum said. He noted that conversation among staff had turned to “the need to get back together” as soon as safety permitted.
The executives have already completed the first leg of their journey, touring offices across Florida, Georgia and Texas. They expect to be on tour until “sometime during the fall” or until one of them abandons the other on the side of the road.
A spokesperson for Greenberg Traurig downplayed the likelihood of this occurring. “Brian and Richard truly enjoy each other’s company,” she said, adding that the two would spend the long hours on the road taking time to “reflect on the firm, the culture, and the GT family, while keeping abreast of firm business as they normally do”.
Greenberg Traurig ranks among America’s biggest law firms, accruing more than $1.7 billion in revenue last year. The firm is based in Florida and has 40 offices, of which 10 are located overseas.
