Offit Kurman has welcomed the attorneys from North Carolina’s Hagan Barrett PLLC to the firm. The six Hagan Barrett partners have joined Offit Kurman as principals. The Greensboro boutique firm had grown to be recognized for providing specialized legal services to businesses and individuals in North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad and throughout the state in the areas of corporate and business transactions, complex business litigation, employment, tax, trusts and estates, litigation, and commercial real estate.


“The addition of the Hagan Barrett attorneys, with their deep experience and outstanding reputation in North Carolina, aligns with our firm’s strategic goal to provide exceptional legal services throughout the Southeast and beyond,” said Ted Offit, Chairman of Offit Kurman.


One of the fastest-growing law firms in the country, Offit Kurman has established and increased its presence in the Southeast over the past several years as part of its strategic expansion plan. In 2019, the firm affiliated with one of Charlotte, North Carolina’s oldest and most respected law firms, Horack Talley, and added 27 lawyers. Since that time, the firm also opened offices in Rock Hill and Spartanburg, South Carolina. On August 1, 2022, Offit Kurman assumed the Hagan Barrett office space in downtown Greensboro, marking its eighteenth office.
