Howard County law firm Offit Kurman plans to acquire a Philadelphia health care law boutique, effective April 1.

Kelley Partners’ three lawyers will leave their offices at 1628 Pine St. in Philadelphia and move into Offit Kurman’s space at 1801 Market St. In addition, Offit Kurman will take over Kelley’s Harrisburg office — where it previously did not have a location — which will be managed by Kelley partner John A. Kane.

Joseph T. Kelley Jr.; John A. Kane; and Joseph T. Kelley III will all join Offit Kurman as partners.

Kelley Jr. counsels large and small health care providers and other organizations in the health care industry, providing transactional, regulatory and business services in addition to conducting internal investigations.

Kane, who served as chief counsel to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (now the Department of Human Services) from 1983-2006, represents behavioral health and developmental disability providers, a non-profit behavioral health managed care organization, community health centers, assisted living communities, personal care homes, health care consulting organizations, and individual health care practitioners.

Kelley III serves as compliance and privacy counsel to health care providers, educational institutions and other large and small businesses.
