Seven Shutts & Bowen attorneys throughout the State of Florida have been recognized by their peers in Florida Trend's 2012 Florida Legal Elite.
Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to participate in the voting process that began in October 2011. Lawyers were asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. A panel of previous Legal Elite winners, representing different practice areas in cities across the state, reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists. The resulting lists represent approximately 2% of the more than 67,000 active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.

Eric S. Adams, a partner in the Business Litigation Group, resident in Tampa
