“We are excited about joining forces with Offit Kurman” said Mr. Schreibstein.  “Our affiliation will provide our clients with the opportunity of a greater breadth of services from excellent lawyers in areas we cannot currently serve.  Until I started speaking with Ted, I did not realize how many common contacts we have.”
