GEORGE S. LEMIEUX

CHAIRMAN, GUNSTER, FORT LAUDERDALE

Gunster is a commercial and private wealth law firm with 11 offices across the state. The firm was founded in 1925 during the first great Florida land rush and now employs more than 200 attorneys and 420 total employees. LeMieux, who grew up in Coral Springs and started at the firm right out of law school, has a two-decade resume in Florida politics, starting with becoming president of the Broward County Young Republicans in 1996. A history buff, he and Laura Mize authored the book Florida Made: The 25 Most Influential Figures Who Shaped the State.

EDUCATION Emory University (BA), Georgetown University (JD)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION I started as a commercial litigator and matriculated to the Attorney General’s Office as the chief deputy. In a quick six years, I went from being the chief deputy to the governor’s chief of staff to a U.S. senator — a journey I could never have imagined. I rejoined Gunster in 2011.
NEW HOBBY Even though I was born in Fort Lauderdale, the Venice of America, I never was a boater — until this year.
