Before starting the firm in 2003, both Peter Berlowe and Eric Assouline worked as associate attorneys at the Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP law firm. Hanging in the office of the Head of the Litigation Department was a framed plaque that read “Defense Verdict of the Year.” This plaque commemorated the awesome accomplishment of the senior partner’s efforts, and it was recognized by the American Law Journal. Eric Assouline used to look at this plaque in awe and wonder if he could ever achieve the heights of his mentor.
In its 15th year, Assouline & Berlowe has grown into a recognized and well regarded presence in the South Florida legal community. Assouline & Berlowe works with businesses and individuals on a wide array of legal issues, ranging from real estate, business litigation, intellectual property, employment, and trusts, estates and probate matters.
On May 30, 2018, Assouline & Berlowe was recognized by the Daily Business Review for the tireless hard work and effort of its attorneys, when the firm was awarded Litigation Department of the Year, for Small Firms, in the areas of Real Estate and Other Litigation.
The award came as a surprise to the management of the firm, not because they did not think that they had anything short of an excellent litigation department. Instead, it was because the litigation department of Assouline & Berlowe only consists of 7 attorneys, and the firm, as a whole only has 12 attorneys. The Small Firm category of the DBR award was open to all firms of 69 attorneys or less. Firm management thought that there must be dozens of other firms that had many celebrated successes worthy of trying to win this award. Nonetheless, again, the tireless effort of the firm management did as it always does, all that could be done to try to win.
Now, the hard work for the last 15 years, is starting to pay off.
