GrayRobinson's recent Community Leader Forum held in Orlando featured chair, JPMorgan Chase & Co. for Florida, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean; chair, JPMorgan Chase Foundation and Former United State Senator Mel Martinez.
Held March 20, 2012 at GrayRobinson's downtown office, Martinez spoke to central Florida business leaders about the economy, his time as a United States Senator, and his role with JPMorgan Chase and Co. Martinez noted that recessions are taking longer to recover today than they did in the 1970s. In today's economy, recovery will come from technology and entrepreneurship and that private sector investment is the key to recovery. To that end, JPMorgan Chase & Co. came to Florida after acquiring Washington Mutual (WaMu). JPMorgan Chase now has approximately 300 branches in the state of Florida and continues to grow.
Through its Community Leader Forums, GrayRobinson brings together clients, attorneys and friends of the firm to hear high-profile business and community leaders and elected officials discuss issues of importance to the state of Florida.
