Offit Kurman is pleased to announce today that Paul M. Kaplan has joined the firm’s offices in New York. Mr. Kaplan will serve as a Principal-level attorney with the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group.

Paul Kaplan concentrates his practice on business litigation and dispute resolution, antitrust litigation and counseling, class action defense, and white-collar defense and criminal and civil investigations. Mr. Kaplan represents domestic and foreign financial institutions and corporations and their Directors and Officers in federal and state litigation and regulatory matters and has advised them on the antitrust aspects of mergers and acquisitions, as well as a broad range of industries on general antitrust matters. He counsels corporations on the antitrust ramifications of business transactions with a view to avoiding or minimizing exposure to antitrust claims in litigation and represents financial institutions and corporations facing regulatory or court enforcement actions. He has represented corporations and executives in federal and state government investigations involving both criminal and civil matters. He has represented clients in the following industries: financial services, telecommunications, health care and medical devices, consumer goods and electronics, college and amateur sports, automotive parts, university bookstores, and natural resources.

Mr. Kaplan has practiced law for more than 30 years with major law firms and corporations in the United States and Europe. He began his legal career in London, England where he was an associate with an Anglo-American law firm. Following a clerkship in Boston with the late Honorable R. Ammi Cutter, a justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, Mr. Kaplan joined the legal department of AT&T in New York, then involved in a complex business reorganization and divestiture, pursuant to a federal court antitrust decree. He also held the title of vice president at Citibank, NA (Citigroup) in the General Counsel’s Office and at J.P. Morgan Chase (Chemical Bank), where he was group counsel in the bank’s Middle Market/Financial Services Group.

Mr. Kaplan has been an adjunct professor of law at Fordham Law School, where he taught an advanced antitrust course from 1991 to 2011. In February 2006, he organized, on behalf of the government of Israel, a financial services delegation to Israel led by the late Honorable Jack Kemp (former U.S. Representative from New York, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Republican Party nominee for Vice President in 1996).
