Offit Kurman Grows in Wilmington With Cooch and Taylor Trio

Offit Kurman has hired Kevin Fasic and Katherine Witherspoon as partners and state Sen. Anthony Delcollo, R-Marshallton, as an associate. Effective Aug. 1 they will join partner Frank Noyes, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Wilmington. Noyes had an office in Wilmington, but the firm has now expanded its space within the same building.
Fasic, Witherspoon and Delcollo come from Cooch and Taylor, a 57-year-old firm with less than 20 lawyers. They became connected with Offit Kurman through partner Joshua Quinter, who works in the Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, office, said firm chairman Ted Offit.
"We've kind of done what we can do in the confines of where we are," Fasic said. "Having more resources, more opportunities for collaboration with people who do what we do, I think that's an attractive thing for all of us really."
Offit said the trio fits squarely into Offit Kurman's regional strategy. The 30-year-old firm has been focused on expansion in the Philadelphia area, he said, and has long sought a group in Delaware to augment that growth. The Cooch and Taylor group was attractive for its local client base and reputation in the community, Offit said, also pointing to Delcollo's role in state government.
Many of Offit Kurman's clients are middle-market businesses. Fasic said his group's clients are much the same, even though much of the legal work in Delaware involves large companies incorporated there. Major business litigation, intellectual property cases and bankruptcies "drag in a significant number of small and midsize companies," he said.
