Offit Kurman is on its way to a more permanent home in Manhattan after announcing an affiliation with Menaker & Herrmann last week.

Maple Lawn-based Offit Kurman said earlier this year it would absorb New York City’s Eaton & Van Winkle but the deal fell through at the last minute after Eaton & Van Winkle was unable to contribute to the office lease as agreed. Eight Eaton & Van Winkle attorneys still joined Offit Kurman in a temporary space in New York and three more have joined the team since.

Eaton & Van Winkle ceased operations at the end of February.

Under the affiliation with Menaker & Herrmann, lawyers will operate out of the firm’s existing space in Manhattan and expand to an additional floor to house the other New York-based attorneys. Offit Kurman will gain 12 attorneys in all.

“We are honored to not only add a dozen exceptional lawyers to Offit Kurman, but to do so in a manner that supports our regional growth in New York City,” Offit Kurman Chairman Ted Offit said in a statement. “In terms of experience, market focus, location, and shared values, the Menaker & Herrmann team is an excellent fit for our firm.”

Menaker & Herrmann has been active for 35 years and specializes in construction law and commercial litigation, which are in high demand among Offit Kurman clients, according Offit Kurman’s announcement about the affiliation.
