September 2012 Press Release: Law Offices of John M. Clyne, Jr., P.A. ranked in the Top Three Law Firms in the country for Insurance Agency Sales, Insurance Agency Purchases, and Insurance Agency Mergers

The 2011 SNL Financial Institutions Deal Book ranked the Law Offices of John M. Clyne, Jr., P.A. in the top three law firms for insurance agency purchases and insurance agency sales.  This national ranking was based on the number of reported insurance agency transactions closed by the law firm.

“We are pleased to be ranked one of the country’s leading law firms for insurance agency purchases, insurance agency mergers, and insurance agency sales.  Our recognition is especially gratifying given that most of our transactions are private and go unreported, and also because we are the smallest law firm in the national pool”, said John Clyne, the firm’s CEO.  “We are confident that our tax boutique approach enables the firm to mitigate the tax burdens that impact insurance agency transactions, thereby generating transactional momentum,” said Clyne.
