TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Kaye Scholer, a national law firm with international capabilities, announced that it has chosen to establish its new operations center in Tallahassee.

The move is slated to bring job opportunities in the fields of accounting, document services, graphics, technology, library services, docketing, human resources and marketing. Right now the exact number of jobs the firm is expected to bring to the area is unknown, according to a Chamber of Commerce official.

The law firm conducted a multi-state search and evaluation but ultimately selected Tallahassee, citing the quality of life, affordable housing and proximity to state government and major universities such as The Florida State University, Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College as the reason.

This stems from a push by several local and state agencies --including the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Council of Tallahassee/Leon County, City of Tallahassee, Leon County, and Enterprise Florida-- to inform the firm about the advantages of choosing this state and region.

The company has not selected a final location for its operations center but is in the process of reviewing available locations and buildings.

Kaye Scholer is an AmLaw 100 firm with 9 offices in the US, UK, Europe and Asia.

Additional information will be shared soon regarding the company’s job creation and capital investment in the Tallahassee region.
