Happy Holidays from Kistemaker Business Law Group

This is the time of year we all reflect upon our gifts in life, the things we are grateful for and the people we love.

This year, we celebrated seven years in business and for that, we are incredibly grateful — especially for the opportunity to serve our wide range of clients with their legal needs since 2010.

“We are so proud to have served our clients for seven years and are happy to share we are still going strong every day,” said founder Erum Kistemaker.

We are continuing to grow, having recently added local attorney Erin Glover-Frey to serve as Of-Counsel and moved to a new office beachside in Ormond Beach. It has been a pleasure to grow and evolve as a firm throughout 2017 and we are thrilled to be thriving in Volusia County.

As we look toward 2018, we want to thank all our clients, colleagues, friends and family who have supported us through the year. Happy Holidays and here’s to a Happy New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving from Kistemaker Business Law Group

  • Clients who understand their legal needs and trust our team to address them
  • Colleagues in our network of legal and COA/HOA professionals
  • Professional development opportunities we are able to take advantage of as well, as provide to COA/HOA professionals in the area
  • Our health
  • Our community, filled with caring people who take care of one another
  • Our safety, particularly in the wake of Hurricane Irma, which took a toll on us all
  • Community partners, such as the Volusia Building Association Managers, who support our successes and help us remain involved and

Kistemaker Business Law Group is pleased to be celebrating seven years in business. The firm’s prestigious team of lawyers has successfully brought their diversity and unique legal backgrounds together to provide the Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and surrounding areas a high-end boutique firm since opening its doors in 2010.

“We are so proud to have served our clients for seven years and are happy to share we are still going strong and growing every day,” said founder Erum Kistemaker.

The firm recently added local attorney Erin Glover-Frey to serve as Of-Counsel.

Erum’s experience includes licenses to practice law in multiple jurisdictions, states, and countries. She has worked in a variety of legal settings around the world, including some of the largest, leading and most respected international, national, and local law firms; government agencies; and as in-house counsel. Her passion for business, property, development/construction, and condominium and homeowners association law grew while working as an Associate for Carlton Fields, one of the nation’s largest and leading law firms.

After serving as ICI Homes Associate General Counsel, she launched her own firm. Having grown up in Ormond Beach, Erum has strong ties to the community and is dedicated to the service and growth of the area, including involvement in the Junior League of Daytona Beach, The Ormond Beach Chamber and the Young Lawyers Division. They were just listed as #18 on the Volusia Flagler Book of Lists largest area law firms. They are planning an anniversary celebration after the holidays.

The firm’s areas of practice include Condo/HOA Law and Litigation, Real Estate Law and Litigation, Business Law and Litigation, and Contruction Law and Litigation.

 

Erum Kistemaker Hires Local Attorney as Firm’s Of-Counsel

Erum Kistemaker, managing partner of Kistemaker Business Law Group, is pleased to announce she has added Erin Glover-Frey to her legal team.

Glover-Frey has taken on the Of-Counsel role in the firm and her primary focus will be condo/homeowners association litigation as well as litigation for the firm’s real estate and business law cases.

An Ormond Beach native, Glover-Frey is a Seabreeze High School graduate and former Miss Seabreeze. Kistemaker is also a Seabreeze graduate.

Glover-Frey graduated from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. and the Cardozo School of Law in New York City. She is currently a member of the Volusia/Flagler Association of Women Lawyers and the treasurer of the Pine Trail Elementary School Parent/Teacher Association.

Both Kistemaker and Glover-Frey are licensed to practice in both Florida and New York, which is notably unusual for the Central Florida region.

Erum Kistemaker Named Influential Woman in Business

Erum Kistemaker, managing partner of Kistemaker, was recently honored in the 23th annual edition of the Volusia/Flagler Business Report’s “Influential Women in Business.”

According to the publication owned by the Daytona Beach News-Journal, each year they “recognize some of the many women in Volusia and Flagler Counties who are making a difference, both professionally and in their community.

Over the years, more than 200 women have received this honor, some more than once.

The honorees through the years have ranged from small business owners to executives of major corporations as well as nonprofit executives and local government, education, chambers of commerce and trade association leaders.

Many have achieved great success in their careers while also raising a family. Many, including some of this year’s honorees, also overcame tremendous adversity and in some cases personal tragedies.

The one thing all have in common, in addition to being accomplished, is a commitment and passion for bettering the lives of those around them as well as the community.”

The women, including Erum, were honored at a special “Influential Women in Business Luncheon” held on Sept. 27 at The Shores Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach.
