Paul Kiernan has been the executive partner of Holland & Knight's Washington office for nearly five years. During that time, the firm has made a high-profile move to a new building and grown headcount to about 135 attorneys. Washington is the firm's largest office.
Kiernan, who has been with the firm for almost 20 years, is a trial attorney focused on appellate work, government contract litigation, real estate matters and commercial litigation.
Legal Times sat down with Kiernan recently to talk about what's keeping him busy these days, the changing legal market and the decline of the billable hour.
