After a practice spanning 40 years, the prominent law firm of Colodny, Fass, Talenfeld, Karlinsky, Abate & Webb is re-branding, starting with a new, simplified name — “Colodny Fass.”

The new moniker will be effective October 31, according to Managing Partner Mike Colodny. As of that date, the firm’s web address will be

Although the name may be shorter, Colodny Fass itself is expanding, as it reinforces its role in the business growth of insurance clients throughout Florida and the U.S.

During (and after) the re-branding phase, Colodny Fass will continue to focus on its fundamental practice areas: insurance regulation, compliance, governmental relations and litigation.

“Our firm has expanded to meet our clients’ increased needs,” Colodny says. “Providing responsive and personal service as a boutique practice will always be our cornerstone philosophy as we continue to grow.”

Coming on board in December 2014 is national insurance specialist G. Donovan Brown, to serve as Senior Governmental Counsel for the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, as well as former Florida CFO and Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher and Claude Mueller, former Florida Office of Insurance Regulation Director of Property and Casualty.

The new Colodny Fass name simply reflects how clients already call the firm, says co-founder Joel Fass.

“The name change is a direct recognition of our valued clients, who have essentially been calling us ‘Colodny Fass’ for some time now,” Fass adds.  “We’ve are excited to present this streamlined new name that will proudly carry us into the next 40 years.”
