Growth Matters-02

Welcome to Growth Matters, a digest of headlines about Offit Kurman as well as news generated from within our firm. With so many recent updates around our offices, we decided to collect the biggest stories of the past 12 months in one place. Here you'll find a snapshot look at Offit Kurman's growth stories from 2018—many of which are still unfolding in 2019—including law firm affiliations, attorneys joining our roster, practice group launches, awards, and more.

Most businesses rarely, if ever, have the opportunity to report double-digit growth in the course of a single year. But 2018 was not a typical year, and our firm is no ordinary business. Here at Offit Kurman, we are pleased to report that our firm has grown by more than 18% over the past 12 months—from a roster of 297 attorneys and support staff on January 1st to our current headcount of 351.

 

The key to our sustained, organic expansion? Lateral recruitment and professional management. By hiring skilled, experienced legal professionals throughout the regions we serve, Offit Kurman is able to not only provide clients with a greater breadth and depth of services but also give lawyers a home to build their practices while focusing on their clients and professional management takes care of the rest. As the firm approaches our goal of 200 attorneys by the year 2020, we look forward to welcoming even more extraordinary individuals to our team.

Read on for a full rundown of recent press releases and media stories about Offit Kurman's continued growth and expansions. And make sure to subscribe to keep up to date with Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law.
