The firm has hired Joshua C. Quinter and Karin Corbett, two lawyers from Blue Bell’s Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, to oversee the operations of the new office. Quinter a partner and Corbett an associate, both construction law and commercial litigators, are also bringing many of their clients with them.
The pair officially joined the firm on December 30, explaining that they were attracted to Offit Kurman by the firm’s regional presence and all the resources it provided.
Quinter, who will be heading the new office, added that Offit Kurman’s business philosophy was an additional draw for him.
Until a more permanent space in the area becomes available, Quinter and Corbett will work from a temporary office in Plymouth Meeting.
According to CEO Theodore A. Offit, the firm already plans to expand its suburban Philadelphia office significantly by attracting more talent to its new location.
“Law firms are businesses and they’re in the business of practicing law, and that’s often lost in the law firm setting,” said Quinter.
