Charlotte, NC – Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP today announces the opening of a new office in Greenville, SC – the seventh location in the firm’s footprint. Partner Michael Kozlarek manages the new office. This marks the firm’s fourth location in South Carolina and its second office in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson metro area. Parker Poe’s expansion recognizes Greenville as a leading manufacturing hub and economic development driver and confirms the firm’s commitment to serving the needs of global business in the Carolinas. The new office will serve the area’s business needs, including those in public finance, tax, economic development, business law and commercial litigation.
Kozlarek focuses his practice on the areas of public finance, economic development, tax disputes, and general municipal law for state and local governments and businesses. In his 15 years of experience, he has consulted with private industry concerning South Carolina property tax law, and represented both foreign and domestic companies in the negotiation of economic development incentives focusing in the Southeast. In addition to his practice, Kozlarek taught at the University of South Carolina School of Law and is a former member of the South Carolina Army National Guard. Kozlarek received his JD and MIBS degrees from the University of South Carolina and is a graduate of Princeton University.
Joining Kozlarek is Madison Felder, an associate transferring from Parker Poe Columbia. Felder focuses on the local, state and federal tax issues related to public finance transactions and economic development. Felder received his BA from Wofford College and his JD/LLM in Taxation from the University of Florida.
“The Greenville area is one of the fastest growing regions in the state, and we are pleased to announce a new Upstate location to complement our strong team and client presence in Columbia, Charleston and Spartanburg,” says Kozlarek. “My team and I look forward to serving this continued growth and the I-85 business corridor.”
