Six attorneys are leaving Anderson Kill’s Philadelphia office and joining up with Offit Kurman, forming a new insurance recovery practice group there. This leavings Anderson Kill with four attorneys in Philadelphia, coming on the heels of last year’s departure of nine Philadelphia lawyers to Reed Smith. Last year’s move was part of a larger exodus, when 55 lawyers in all moved from Anderson Kill to Reed Smith, following aborted merger discussions between the two firms.
Michael Conley will head up the new practice group for Offit Kurman. He is joined by his co-managing shareholder Mark Gottlieb. Also moving are shareholder Frederick Pettit and associate Darin McMullen, both of whom will be principals at their new firm, and associates William Pillsbury and Meghan Finnerty have joined Offit Kurman as associates.
