News: Press Release
Philadelphia, PA | July 9, 2018 Offit Kurman is now the 275th largest law firm in the United States, as recognized by the NLJ 500, the National Law Journal’s annual survey of the nation’s biggest firms. Additionally, Offit Kurman ranked 11th among firms whose largest office is located in Philadelphia.
To compile each year’s NLJ 500 list, the National Law Journal collects data from firms during the previous calendar year and calculates firm size by attorney headcount. More than 900 law firms received surveys in 2017. Lawyer totals are determined by the average number of full-time equivalent attorneys at the firm for the period between January 1st and December 31st, 2017.
Founded over 30 years ago in Maryland, Offit Kurman has expanded at a meteoric rate in key markets throughout the Mid-Atlantic region over the past decade. The firm attributes this success to an ambitious growth plan and strategy of lateral acquisitions. Moreover, many attorneys who affiliate with Offit Kurman choose to do so on the strength of the firm’s unique platform, which empowers professionals to develop their practices at their own pace, reduces management overhead, and which offers compensation based on objective performance measurements.
Last year, the number of Pennsylvania attorneys affiliated with Offit Kurman skyrocketed after the firm opened another office in the Philadelphia suburbs. Activity in the Philadelphia market has continued at a rapid pace, with the firm’s presence there soon becoming Offit Kurman’s largest on a regional level.
That fact may soon change, however, as the firm continues to expand in other markets. Earlier this year, Offit Kurman achieved a significant foothold in New York City after adding 15 former Menaker & Herrmann attorneys, and several more from Eaton & Van Winkle, to the ranks of its Manhattan office. Commenting on those successes, Offit Kurman chairman Ted Offit hinted at additional growth in the near future, and further explained the firm’s expansion strategy.
“The primary reason for our continued expansion is to provide clients and attorneys the best legal services possible,” he said. “Ours may not be the fastest or most efficient method, but it has proven to be the most effective.”
