LawMatters- April 2017

Did you know that it is Offit Kurman’s 30th anniversary? In the three decades since brothers Maurice and Ted Offit first joined together with Howard Kurman, our law firm has grown from a niche group into a full-service legal organization. Today, Offit Kurman encompasses a diverse group of more than 130 legal practitioners in multiple office locations throughout Maryland and the greater Mid-Atlantic region. Along the way, we have earned multiple distinctions—most recently in the Daily Record’s ranking of Maryland’s largest law firms—as a go-to legal partner that leverages large-scale capabilities with a small-scale focus on every client.

Offit Kurman’s extraordinary growth rate is the result of strategic decisions—such as lateral acquisitions, and the establishment of offices in suburban locations to accommodate clients’ needs—that allow attorneys to offer a greater breadth and quality of legal services. We figure that the better we can take care of our attorneys, the better they can take care of their clients.

Find out why individuals, families, and the region’s top business and nonprofit organizations consider Offit Kurman their trusted legal partner.
