Offit Kurman has had remarkable success and growth, doubling in size in the last four years, fueled by recent expansion in New York City and Charlotte, North Carolina. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, the firm experienced growth in 2020, opening two new offices in the Southeast in last twelve months.
