Alvarez, 61, will become executive chairman.

Richard A. Rosenbaum. Why do lawyers insist on putting tiny, 80x100 thumbnail circa-1996 photos of themselves on their web sites? Are they shy? Ugly? Stupid?Rosenbaum, 54, works in Greenberg Traurig’s New York office. He joined the firm in Fort Lauderdale in 1985 before moving to New York in 1996. He remains a member of the Florida Bar.


From New York, Rosenbaum has overseen about half of the firm’s offices in the United States, as well as offices in Europe and Asia.

Greenberg Traurig has more than 1,800 lawyers in 32 offices, up from about 1,650 in 2007. It had 325 lawyers when Alvarez became CEO in 1997. Last fall, the National Law Journal ranked it the country’s eighth-largest law firm.

Greenberg Traurig had $1.2 billion in revenue in 2007, up from $1.04 billion in 2006.
