LawMatters- December 2017

Happy holidays from Offit Kurman!

We extend our well-wishes and gratitude to everyone who has made 2017 a banner year for our firm. This past year has brought many new attorneys, practice areas, clients, and business partners our way. We opened offices in the Philadelphia suburbs, Washington DC and relocated our New Jersey Offices to Metro Park. We have also been fortunate enough to receive numerous awards and recognition from our peers and members of the communities we serve.

At the same time, we recognize that for many of our clients, friends, and neighbors, the past year has been rife with challenge and turmoil. While political conflicts and reports of workplace harassment dominate the headlines, millions across the country are still recovering from natural disasters—and millions more are wondering whether pending legislation, such as the GOP tax bill, will help or harm their organizations and families. For better or worse, uncertainty is now a fact of modern life.

But, as our growth indicates, uncertainty can pose opportunities—so long as you have the right legal partner at your side. While you reflect on 2017, take a look at what’s coming ahead in 2018 in this month’s edition of the LawMatters newsletter:
