Yoss LLP to Dissolve

Posted by Nate Raymond

Yoss LLP, which was the largest certified minority-owned U.S. law firm, is set to dissolve at the end of the month, sibling publication Daily Business Review reports.

The closure of the Florida-based law firm was confirmed in an e-mail sent Friday to employees by managing partner George Yoss. The closure comes just months after founder and former name partner Henry Adorno's law license was suspended due to alleged mishandling of a settlement.

The firm, then called Adorno & Yoss, rebranded. But layoffs, partner departures, and office closings have hit the firm since then, the Daily Business Review recounts. At the time of the reorganization, the firm said it had 200 professionals; a search of the firm's Web directory on Monday found 124 lawyers listed.

"As we are sure you are aware, these have been extremely difficult times for the firm," Yoss said in the e-mail. “After meeting with the bank and evaluating the firm’s status and financial position, the decision was made to wind down its operation."
