anonymous-Does this seem OK?

Yes, if the man was already known to those who are hearing this news. If the man has never before been mentioned, he is unknown and therefore "a man".

The same applies to "the law firm". Maybe it should be "a law firm"?

anonymous-Does "having" mean they were in the middle of the party when the man arrived?

Yes.

anonymous-Is "having" better than "holding"?

Yes.
