Florida-based business law firm Jimerson Birr has been named to the 2021 Gator100 list released by the University of Florida (UF), which recognizes the 100 fastest-growing businesses in the world led by its Alumni. This is the fourth year the Jacksonville-headquartered law firm has earned a spot on the list.
In coordination with an independent accounting firm, the University of Florida’s Alumni Association produces the annual list based on three defining qualities a business must embody to be considered for the award: character, leadership, and the duration and revenues of the organization. Eligible companies are required to have been in continuous business for five or more years, meet the verified annual revenue, be Gator-owned or Gator-led, and operate in accordance with the values and image of the University of Florida.
Managing partner Charles B. Jimerson and partner James O. “Joby” Birr, III received their respective Juris Doctor degrees from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Jimerson is an AV-Rated Preeminent, Florida Bar Board Certified attorney in Construction Law, and has been named one of the Top 100 Most Influential Attorneys in Law and Business in the United States, among a list of other honors. Birr is also Board Certified in Construction Law by the Florida Bar and AV-Rated Preeminent. The firm, founded by Jimerson in 2009, has been named one of the Best Law Firms in America, according to U.S. News & World Report, with both Jimerson and Birr receiving individual distinctions as Best Lawyers.
“As proud alumni, all of our Florida law attorneys feel a great sense of gratitude to the University of Florida for the foundation it provided for us as young, aspiring lawyers to establish and nurture our professional goals,” said Jimerson. “To be celebrated among the group of its fastest growing Gator-led businesses around the world is an honor we are extraordinarily humbled by. Go Gators!”
The firm’s official ranking will be released during a virtual premiere of Gator100 Awards on April 23, 2021.
