Offit Kurman Attorneys Recognized by Legal Intelligencer

May 11, 2017 | Philadelphia, PA


The March 2017 edition of the Legal Intelligencer included a special section dedicated to “Top Laterals/New Partners” at the country’s best law firms. As a result, Legal Intelligencer has shone a spotlight on many of the great legal minds at Offit Kurman.


Timothy Lynch, a managing principal at Offit Kurman, wrote the featured article for this special section, entitled “Legal Field Growth Is Rooted In Lateral Recruitment.” Mr. Lynch, in addition to being a litigation attorney, is also a member of the Offit Kurman management committee, which is responsible for all of the firm’s legal affairs. In his article, Mr. Lynch lays out a compelling argument for law firms embracing lateral teams in new and innovative ways.

“Law firm leaders will have to build and strengthen platforms and programs that will allow laterals to integrate into the new firm’s culture and not just survive but thrive,” writes Mr. Lynch. “That means that the law firms that are most likely to ‘win’ in this marketplace will need to implement development programs for lateral teams to help with client acquisition.”

In the spirit of Mr. Lynch’s article, Offit Kurman has hired three new attorneys who appeared in the same issue of the Legal Intelligencer, in a section called “More Notable Laterals: The Runners-Up.” Our Notable Laterals include Paul Winterhalter and Matt D’Annunzio.


Mr. Winterhalter, focuses on bankruptcy and commercial litigation, which he has specialized in for over 25 years. And Mr. D’Annunzio is a principal who represents businesses, individuals and families in complex commercial litigation. All three laterals are wonderful additions to the Offit Kurman team.


In addition, 9 Offit Kurman attorneys were featured in the New Partner Yearbook section of the March 2017 Legal Intelligencer, including Ryan N. Boland, Matthew D'Annunzio, John A. Kane, Joshua Quinter and Paul J. Winterhalter.
