Gunster is clearly focused on the industries that drive Florida’s economic engine. With the fourth largest population and GDP in the country, Florida is a critical player on a national and international scale.

In addition to being considered the gateway to the Latin America marketplace, Florida is experiencing significant growth in a variety of industries including health care, technology, hospitality, transportation and agriculture. The state's importance in the world of banking and financial services cannot be underestimated: South Florida is home to the second highest concentration of international banks in the nation. Gunster has strength in all of these sectors. Our legal services help businesses grow, expand and relocate to Florida. Additionally, Gunster's Government Affairs practice plays a key role in helping to navigate the oftentimes complex state legislative and administrative processes.
