LawMatters- June 2018

Believe it or not, summer is here. Although the summertime is normally associated with long sunny days and relaxation, legal and business developments here in the Mid-Atlantic are showing no signs of slowing down. Spurred by economic uncertainty and a retiring population of baby boomer business owners, markets from New York to Virginia are witnessing unprecedented mergers and acquisitions activity. Meanwhile, conflict over issues such as immigration, international trade, and drug policy has turned the nation’s eyes towards Washington, DC—creating a volatile environment for businesses, lawmakers, and families in the area and surrounding regions. And, as the next hurricane season approaches, many of us are preparing for the imminent environmental impact and helping business owners recover from damage due to unprecedented weather events. In short, we all have a lot to think about these days. Fortunately, the attorneys of Offit Kurman are here to help.
