Adam August, Partner with Holland & Knight LLP
Adam August is the first to tell you he has one of the best jobs in the industry, working with “30 of the best deal lawyers in the country,” as he puts it.
The firm’s M&A and securities group has handled more M&A transactions in the government technology space than any other law firm. For August, the reason is simple, “[It’s] our reputation and culture for a business focus and approach in providing value-added legal services.”
Why watch: August has worked on over 200 transactions, including billion-dollar tender offers, small transactions involving a few million dollars, and everything in between. In addition, he’s continuously networked with over 100 government contractor clients, as well as dozens of professional services providers. Throughout August’s approach is laser-focused. “I am routinely challenged to think creatively and practically – more like a business owner and not like a litigation attorney.”
