Law firms are more and more taking conscious steps toward internal innovation and expanding client services beyond legal work.
Greenberg Traurig is the latest firm to announce such an initiative — and it might be the first to do so by spinning off a wholly owned subsidiary. According to an announcement from the firm, that subsidiary, Recurve, is a global shared-services platform intended to offer non-legal services to its clients. And although it’s a global platform for a global law firm, the Denver office is at the head of the new project.
Recurve is establishing headquarters in Denver; Warsaw, Poland; and Tel Aviv, Israel and will have operations in other locations, including Austin, Texas, Berlin and South Florida, all locations with Greenberg Traurig offices.
Thomas Romer, a shareholder at the Denver office, is already a leader within the firm in its innovation efforts. He has been working on the planning for Recurve along with the firm’s executive chairman Richard Rosenbaum; Warsaw office managing shareholder Jarosław Grzesiak; and a support committee of shareholders and business staff managers appointed by the firm’s executive committee.
