Offit Kurman Acquires High-End Boutique In New York


Offit Kurman, a fast-growing full-service law firm with 15 offices and around 250 lawyers in the United States has announced an affiliation with Snitow Kaminetsky Rosner & Snitow LLP (SKRS.) SKRS is a high-end boutique litigation and transactional law firm based in New York. A team of six attorneys, led by Franklyn H. Snitow, will join the firm in New York.

The acquisition is a part of Offit Kurman’s strategy to significantly bolster its presence in the New York Metropolitan area. The firm launched its Manhattan office in 2018 with two lawyers. After the addition of six lawyers from SKRS, the firm will now have over 50 lawyers in New York and it will also be the firm’s largest office location. Founded in 1987 as a boutique law firm in Baltimore County, Maryland, the firm is now a part of the Am Law 200 list.
