“We targeted Philadelphia because there’s a lot of affiliation and consolidation” among big firms, he tells the Intelligencer. “That’s what brought us to Philly.”
Among the lawyers Offit is gaining via the merger with the Abrahams firm is Sayde Ladov, who is Chancellor elect of the Philadelphia Bar Association, notes a press release.
