In addition to the list above, Offit Kurman also provides services tailored to nonprofit entities, emerging businesses, and international companies. Finally, our New Paradigm Counsel® program provides growing businesses with an on-demand in-house legal department.
How We Do It
Who We Are
Brothers Maurice and Ted Offit, along with childhood friend Howard Kurman, started Offit Kurman as a boutique law firm in 1987. By 2001, the modest Owings Mills, Maryland-based firm began growing quickly through affiliations with other small practices. It was at this time that Offit Kurman’s unique compensation system was put in place: the founders believe in rewarding people for the profit and productivity they bring to the firm, not their seniority.
It was also around this time that the Offit Kurman team realized they could grow at a sustainable pace through lateral acquisitions in strategic markets. To manage its growth, the firm brought on its first non-legal employees. Together with the founders and several Practice Group leaders within Offit Kurman, these professionals soon formed a management committee and set an ambitious goal for the firm: to grow to 100 attorneys by 2010.
Offit Kurman’s attorney team continues to grow and is currently comprised of more than 180 lawyers in 12 offices across the Mid-Atlantic, from New York City to Washington, DC.
Our attorneys are a diverse group of renowned litigators, sought-after speakers, and widely-circulated writers. Many of the members of our team have been involved in headline-making disputes and multimillion-dollar business transactions. Others have earned top ratings from their peers and clients, and have achieved distinction in lists such as Super Lawyers and the Best Lawyers in America.
Diversity & Inclusion
Offit Kurman strives to employ attorneys and support staff to enhance our overall quality of legal services. Thus, we formed the Diversity Committee to identify, recruit and retain successful staff of diverse races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientation, national origins, disabilities and military service backgrounds.
