With the intent of bolstering its commercial litigation and insurance defense practice, Almazan Law announced a seasoned trio of new partners: Gregory Glasser (pictured above), Mario Gomez and Brett Kaplan. The attorneys bring a combined 55 years of experience in complex legal matters, from their practice at Klein, Glasser, Park and Lowe, P.L. (f/k/a Stephens, Lynn, Klein). No doubt the new players will reinvigorate the firm, which counts as current clients Fortune 500 conglomerates, large insurance carriers, PEOs, individuals and small businesses. Almazan’s specialty practice areas include insurance defense, commercial litigation, workers compensation, and real estate.

“Growing this law firm during this unprecedented pandemic to better serve our client’s needs now and be well prepared on the other side of it is our goal,” says Alex Almazan, the firm’s founder and managing partner. “Our top priority is always servicing our loyal clientele with best in class counsel, and that starts with attracting great talent. Greg, Mario and Brett are exceptional attorneys, each bringing a unique skill set to the table, and I greatly look forward to collaborating with them for the benefit of our firm’s clients for years to come.”

A top litigator, Greg Glasser focuses on commercial litigation, catastrophic injury defense, insurance disputes and defense of professional malpractice claims. He will now manage the firm’s litigation department. Mario Gomez’s expertise is in general liability, particularly with respect to claims involving

catastrophic personal injuries stemming from automobile and trucking losses. Gomez has tried over two dozen jury trials, and has previously served as claims counsel for a large insurance carrier. Meanwhile, Brett Kaplan represents clients in general liability defense, insurance issues and general civil litigation. He has defended hundreds of matters in bodily injury and property damage realms, primarily representing corporate entities, individuals, and insurance companies.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
