For Immediate Release Robert Kresslein Frederick, MD | February 3, 2016

Offit Kurman has appointed banking, estates, and business planning attorney Robert J. Kresslein chair of the firm’s Banking and Finance practice group. As practice group leader, Mr. Kresslein will oversee the activities and strategic direction of Offit Kurman’s banking and finance attorneys throughout the firm’s multiple offices on the East Coast. He succeeds previous group leader Brian Rosenberg, who continues to collaborate with Offit Kurman on an Of Counsel basis through an independent firm created by Mr. Rosenberg and fellow former Offit Kurman lawyer Bryan J. Pelino late last year. Bob Kresslein joined Offit Kurman in 2014 along with David A. Severn and Ian P. Bartman, all formerly of Severn and Kresslein P.A. Mr. Kresslein focuses his practice on commercial real estate lending, business planning, and commercial real estate transactions. He is former President of the Maryland Bar Foundation, and Trustee of Sheppard & Pratt Health Systems, Inc. He also serves as Treasurer of the Maryland Democratic Party, a position he has held for six years. Mr. Kresslein’s colleagues among the burgeoning practice area include Joyce A. Kuhns, Frances C. Wilburn, and fellow new banking and finance group appointee. The group offers an innovative approach to matters such as residential and commercial acquisition, development and construction loans, asset-based and borrowing base loans, loan restructures and workouts, letters of credit, lines of credit, bridge loans, and mezzanine financing. The members of Offit Kurman’s banking and finance practice represent lenders, borrowers, guarantors, shareholders, partners, insurance companies, participants, syndications, and others involved in financing transactions. “Please join me in welcoming Bob and Dave to the banking and finance group, and congratulating Bob on his new position,” said Practice Group Manager Jim Ries. “With these additions, the firm continues to actively serve clients on all sides of financing transactions by providing efficient, high-quality legal services consisting of senior-level talent at affordable rates.”
