Bernard Madoff impact ripples through Holland & Knight clients

John Hogan, a partner with Holland & Knight in Miami, sent out word this morning that he was creating a Madoff Advisory Group to help clients hurt by the implosion of Bernard Madoff-controlled entities.

It triggered a deluge.

"I'm getting e-mail after e-mail from partners around the country saying they have hundreds of clients involved,'' Hogan said, joking that his plan to pursue other work today is taking a backseat. Among the quick respondents, he said, were Holland partners throughout Florida, including the Tampa Bay area.

Hogan said it was too soon to say whether Holland & Knight would file suit on behalf of its clients or join litigation already filed.

The new advisory group will include attorneys in Florida, New York City, Boston and Washington, D.C.

Madoff, a Wall Street money manager and former chairman of the Nasdaq Stock Market, has been accused of orchestrating a $50-billion scheme to defraud investors.

Jeff Harrington can be reached at or (727) 893-8242.
