Does a Knight tilt windmills in Holland?

Holland & Knight has added two new attorneys to its offices. Well, actually, Robert S. Highsmith Jr. isn't new to H&K, but the former deputy executive counsel (... deputy executive?) to Georgia's Guv Sonny Perdue rejoins the firm and finally makes partner! He'll be working in Atlanta's government practice.

Vernon S. Lynch III is leaving his position as special real estate counsel to Maryland's Attorney General to become a partner in H&K's D.C. office. As you might surmise, if you were easily surmised, he will be working in the real estate group.
