Several of us from The Partners Group recently attended a luncheon with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed at the Capital City Club Downtown. The Mayor spoke to a small gathering of Capital City Club members and business leaders about the state of the City of Atlanta. He discussed recent improvements to infrastructure, the restoration and development plans for the downtown area and Turner Field, and the opening of several new corporate headquarters in the Atlanta metro, specifically the new Porsche Headquarters, the soon to be opened Mercedes Benz Headquarters, and the recently expanded Microsoft Business Center. The City has also been experiencing an influx of venture capitalists which has resulted in a number of technology start-ups calling Atlanta home.

The city continues to grow and is widely acknowledged as the business capital of the South. Based in Atlanta, The Partners Group is ideally situated to partner with our corporate clientele on their legal hiring needs as they continue to expand their operations in the city. Since opening our doors in 1999, we have placed hundreds of in-house attorneys with corporations of all sizes, including several Atlanta based Fortune 500 companies. We applaud Mayor Kasim Reed for his efforts in strengthening our beloved city, and we look forward to future partnerships with corporate legal departments as they grow their presence in Atlanta. Welcome to Atlanta Y’all!
