LawMatters- April 2018

April has been a busy month here for us at Offit Kurman. We are pleased to announce the attorneys and staff of Menaker & Herrmann, including founders Richard G. Menaker and Robert F. Herrmann, are joining our firm in New York City. The team will continue to operate from their location at 10 East 40th Street and will continue to offer the same services, standards of professionalism, and individualized attention to their client base—now supported by Offit Kurman’s 150-plus attorneys across numerous practice groups. M&H has earned a reputation as a leading legal service provider in areas such as construction law and commercial litigation—two categories in high demand among our clients. And through their affiliation with Offit Kurman, the M&H team will be able to offer their clients access to a wider range of services in practice areas such as intellectual property, estate planning, and family law.
