Miami, March 22, 2017 — Cozen O’Connor expanded its Miami office with the addition of three commercial litigators: Charles C. Kline, Jason Domark and Reid Kline, all joining as members. Charles Kline and Domark were both formerly with White & Case. Reid Kline joins the firm from Kelly Tractor Co.
“We are excited to welcome these talented litigators to our team,” said Jeffrey G. Weil, chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Commercial Litigation Group. “All three are recognized for their litigation prowess and bring the same tenacity to solving our clients’ litigation matters that built our firm.”
For more than 40 years, Charles Kline, formerly a partner and the office managing partner of White & Case’s Miami office, has focused his practice on complex commercial and international litigation. He represents clients in a wide variety of matters, including antitrust litigation involving price fixing, attempts to monopolize, price discrimination and unfair trade practices; RICO and foreign corrupt practices; constitutional claims against municipal, state and federal agencies; fraudulent conveyance litigation in bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy situations; and government contract litigation at the local, state and federal levels. He also conducts arbitrations under the International Chamber of Commerce and American Arbitration Association rules.
Domark is an experienced commercial litigator who handles real estate transactions and construction litigation, matters involving fiduciary relations, trusts and estates, directors and officers liability insurance, and bankruptcy proceedings, among many others. Jason has spent his entire 12-year career with White & Case, working with Kline on many matters.
Reid has held several respected positions both in-house and in law firms throughout his career — focusing his practice on commercial and corporate litigation. He has handled commercial litigation matters at trial and appellate levels, breach of contract, business torts, professional malpractice defense and family law.
In the past three years, Cozen O’Connor’s Miami office has grown from seven lawyers to 35. As the office expands, so too does its offerings for clients doing business in South Florida. In addition to these three lawyers, the Miami office recently welcomed four leading immigration lawyers. Earlier in 2016, the firm welcomed 15 intellectual property lawyers to the Miami office following a combination with the Feldman Gale firm.
“We’re excited to continue to grow our presence in Miami by welcoming these three highly regarded litigators to the firm,” said Martin Schrier, office managing partner of the Miami office. “Their experience in complex litigation matters will support our already nationally recognized litigation practice and provide additional expertise for our Florida and international clients.”
Charles, Jason, and Reid all received their J.D.s from the University of Miami School of Law.
