Maynard Cooper & Gale: Women Who Move The City

Meet the leaders at Maynard Cooper & Gale.



(L-R) Mya Hatchette, Shareholder; Sharen Abner, Shareholder; Karen Brown, Shareholder; Aimee Hitchner, Of Counsel; Leigh Williams, Of Counsel.

Maynard is a full-service law fi rm of more than 300 attorneys across a national footprint, which as of April 2022, now includes Orlando. Swann Hadley Stump Dietrich & Spears, P.A., an AV-rated, long-standing fixture in Florida’s legal, business, and political scene, merged into Maynard. This union serves as the latest market extension for Maynard, with the new Central Florida location serving as the fourteenth office in Maynard’s national practice. With the merger, Maynard also gained five talented female attorneys, further di- versifying and enriching the Firm.

Joining Maynard’s Real Estate practice from Swann Hadley are Sharon Abner, Karen Brown, and Leigh Williams. Their combined experience covers commercial real estate and complex residential transactions, sophisticated financing for banks and developers, formation of corporate entities, and asset and stock acquisitions and sales. Aimee Hitchner joins the Firm’s Trust, Estates, Fiduciaries & Family Business practice bringing almost 20 years of experience counseling clients on asset protection and leaving a legacy. In addition, Maynard welcomes Mya Hatchette, a former Litigation Co-Chair with another Central Florida fi rm. Mya has enjoyed a decorated, twenty-two-year legal career, practicing in real estate, business, fiduciary, and healthcare litigation, while also developing a niche practice in complex title and contract disputes. Mya will lead the Firm’s Florida Management Committee, focusing on continued growth throughout the State of Florida.

Moving forward, Maynard will build on the synergies and collective strength generated by these additions, broadening and deepening the Firm’s work within the real estate, banking, and finance sectors. Additionally, the Firm will look to expand opportunities in prominent, national practice areas such as Government Solutions, Insurance, and Securities and Financial Services Litigation. With expertise and experience coming from other Maynard offices in Nashville, TN, Huntsville, AL, San Francisco, CA, and Washington D.C., the Firm will look to compellingly create opportunities within the Hospitality, Technology, and Aerospace and Defense sectors. Maynard serves clients across the United States and globally from its offices in Alabama (Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery), California (Los Angeles, San Francisco), Florida (Miami, Orlando), Georgia (Atlanta), Iowa (Des Moines), New York (New York City), Tennessee (Nashville), Texas (Dallas), and Washington, D.C.
