Blank Rome chairman Alan Hoffman says in the press release that the new lawyers “bring an impressive amount of corporate M&A, corporate litigation, labor and employment, banking, real estate, and trusts and estates experience to the firm’s practices in these areas, as well as Chinese and Korean language capability.”
Margolis & Tisman lists 13 lawyers on its website; all but one are joining Blank Rome. Finestone & Richter lists 11 attorneys; all but two are joining Blank Rome.
