Ohio’s Shumaker Loop & Kendrick is launching a Sarasota, Florida office in August. The new location will be staffed by 29 attorneys and 40 staff members from Sarasota’s now-defunct Abel Band.

Abel Band was one of Southwest Florida’s premier law firms. Earlier this year, Abel Band partner David Band left the firm over disagreements with other partners and troubled real estate deals.

Shumaker Loop also employs 60 attorneys at its Tampa outpost.


Headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, Shumaker Loop & Kendrick employs 215 attorneys across offices in Columbus, Ohio, Tampa and Sarasota, Florida, and Charlotte, North Carolina. It was founded in 1925.
