LAW FIRM, OFFIT KURMAN, ANNOUNCES
BALTIMORE CITY EXPANSION
Baltimore, MD - Offit Kurman, one of the fastest growing law firms in the Mid-Atlantic States, has announced that it has leased 9,400 square feet at 300 East Lombard Street in Baltimore. The law firm is represented by commercial real estate brokerage firm, Abeshouse Partners, which has represented the firm in five previous new office expansions.
"We've grown 7 fold in the last 7 years, and we've doubled in size in the last 3 years," said Ted Offit, managing partner and co-founder of Offit Kurman. "Our extraordinary growth is due to our high compensation model for entrepreneurial attorneys, providing each of them with an opportunity, in many cases, to double their annual compensation. In addition, while many law firms focus on large clients, we have decided to provide complete commercial services to small and mid-size companies. Indeed, we have become a revenue center for such companies, mentoring and guiding them to increased annual revenues. Our clients regard us as partners who play an essential role in helping them to reach their goals.
"To accelerate the firm's growth process, Offit Kurman is employing a strategy that entails merging with smaller law firms, comprising up to ten attorneys, as well as blending in entrepreneurial solo practitioners. Integral to our expansion strategies are the services of Abeshouse Partners, for their understanding of all aspects of the commercial real estate market is second to none."
"To Offit Kurman, it was extremely important for them to secure office space that reflected the firm's integrity and high professional image as well as achieving an accelerated move-in schedule," said Lynn Abeshouse, Managing Principal for Abeshouse Partners. "After reviewing our entire slate of choices available in the marketplace, we presented our recommendations to the firm's principals and provided financial analysis, lease negotiations, and support for the entire transaction. Offit Kurman's new offices are located in a 20-story, 235,000 square foot Class "A" office building overlooking Baltimore's Inner Harbor."
