Under Karl Florida’s watch, FindLaw—an Eagan-based consumer legal website and attorney directory—extended its lead on the competition. Florida was promoted to president of FindLaw in 2010 after serving as the business’ vice president of strategy and development. A Thomson Reuters subsidiary, FindLaw reached a milestone of 8 million monthly visitors in 2014. Florida continued climbing the ladder in 2012, when Thomson Reuters named him managing director of the company’s business segment for small law firms.
