Litchfield Cavo Celebrates 15 Years in Fort Lauderdale

Litchfield Cavo LLP is pleased to celebrate the 15th anniversary of its Fort Lauderdale office. This is the Firm’s ninth office to open its doors in the United States, and the second in the State of Florida after the opening of the Firm’s Tampa office in 2005.

The Fort Lauderdale office opened its doors on February 17, 2009. Today, the office has a workforce of more than 25 attorneys and support staff that provide top-tier legal service to the Firm’s clients.

In her video, Litchfield Cavo Partner Geralyn M. Passaro, the Fort Lauderdale office founding partner and only female partner at the time of the office’s opening, describes how she and Founding Partner Richard C. Cavo established the Florida office.

“Rick always believed in the philosophy, ‘build it and they will come,’” Geralyn shared. “So, that’s exactly what we did when we opened the Fort Lauderdale office, and within a few months we were inundated with work and have continued to grow over the years.”


In addition to celebrating our Fort Lauderdale office’s 15th year of servicing clients, Litchfield Cavo LLP is celebrating its 25th anniversary throughout 2024. Click here to read more about the Firm’s silver anniversary.

At the time Geralyn was recruited to open Litchfield Cavo’s Fort Lauderdale office in 2009, she had more than twenty years of practice at multi-office insurance defense law firms in Florida. Since then, she has served as local office managing partner and a chair of the Diversity, Equity And Inclusion Committee, and is also a capital partner.
