MICHELLE M. GERVAIS
PARTNER, BLANK ROME, TAMPA
Gervais has led Blank Rome’s Tampa office since 2015. The firm has 14 offices and more than 600 attorneys and principals and serves clients both in the U.S. and internationally. Over her 22 years of practice, Gervais says, she has “gone from watching sports on television and attending sporting events in the stands to representing those athletes in their ‘off-the field’ legal needs throughout the world.” She was featured in the NFL Thread’s The Playbook for her work as “legal mom” and for being known as “The Fixer” in the industry.
