Offit Kurman Restructures Management Team To Keep Pace with Continued Growth in 2019 and Beyond

For Immediate Release 

Maple Lawn, MD | January 2, 2019 Offit Kurman, Attorneys At Law, a dynamic legal services provider with 12 offices and more than 185 attorneys from Virginia through New York is preparing for further growth and expansion in 2019.

As part of its expansion plans, Offit Kurman is pleased to announce updates to its organizational structure, as well as promotions of several of the firm’s lawyers into newly-created leadership roles. The firm will continue to rely heavily on professional managers – notably our team members who work closely with the lawyer management and leadership team.

Attorneys John Raftery, who sits on the firm’s management committee, and Josh Quinter, who is a shareholder, have each been appointed to the new role of Associate Managing Principal, reporting to Managing Principal, Timothy Lynch. As Associate Managing Principals, Quinter and Raftery will be responsible for driving implementation of strategic initiatives, revenue growth, quality control and lawyer recruitment and retention at the firm.

Offit Kurman has promoted attorneys Linda Ostovitz, Douglas Kay, Russell Berger, and Edward Bloom, all of whom have served as Practice Group Leaders, to the role of Practice Group Director. Practice Group Directors oversee and manage resources for the firm’s practice groups. Each practice group will continue to have its own Practice Group Leader, who will report to the group’s corresponding Practice Group Director.

“The newest members of our leadership team will be essential in helping to manage Offit Kurman’s growth over the course of this year and beyond,” said Mr. Lynch. "While Offit Kurman is committed to expanding its professional management team, there will always be a need for lawyers to be involved in high level management and leadership at Offit Kurman. By adding John Raftery and Josh Quinter as Associate Managing Principals and by adding Linda, Doug, Ed and Russell as Practice Group Directors along with our many Practice Group Leaders, we have a high quality and committed group of lawyers to help Offit Kurman meet its goals of being the premier provider of legal services to the privately held sector.”

Ted Offit, CEO of Offit Kurman, reiterated Mr. Lynch’s sentiments and remarked on the fact that all of the new attorney management appointees started their careers at Offit Kurman in non-leadership capacities. “Over the years, each of these lawyers has shown consistent leadership ability, as well as an unbridled commitment to driving positive outcomes for the firm. Most important, each continually demands excellence from themselves and their colleagues in the practice of law and client satisfaction. Offit Kurman expects excellence from every member of the firm. For lawyers who meet that expectation, there will always be opportunities to lead and be meaningfully involved in management and the firm’s growth.”

In 2018, Offit Kurman grew its team of attorneys by almost 25%.  A significant percentage of that growth came through the expansion of the New York region but the firm also welcomed new attorneys in the Washington DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia regions of the firm.  In 2019, the firm expects even greater growth across its existing offices.
