Hagan Barrett attorneys joining Offit Kurman include litigator J. Alexander S. Barrett, corporate attorney Charles Hagan, trusts and estate lawyer Robert Douglas, real estate attorney Thomas Medlin, civil litigator Kurt Seeber, and corporate transactions lawyer Scott Tippett.

“The addition of the Hagan Barrett attorneys, with their deep experience and outstanding reputation in North Carolina, aligns with our firm’s strategic goal to provide exceptional legal services throughout the Southeast and beyond,” said Offit Kurman chair Ted Offit.

Offit Kurman saw total revenue growth of around 15% to $135.7 million last year from $117.5 million in 2020, and a roughly 30% spike in profits per equity partner to $769,000 from $594,000.

Under Offit’s leadership, his firm has experienced strong growth in the last few years. Last year it entered the Am Law 200 rankings for the first time. Since then, it has made a number of strategic combinations with smaller law firms in key markets, such as the New York area.

In January Offit combined with Dahan & Nowick, a firm in White Plains, a satellite city 30 miles north of Manhattan. Months prior, last September, the firm added six-lawyer high-end boutique Snitow Kaminetsky Rosner & Snitow in New York. Snitow specializes in servicing wealthy individuals, families, entrepreneurs and private businesses.

Offit has expanded significantly in the Southeast over the past several years. In 2019, it affiliated with Horack Talley, adding 27 lawyers. Since then, Offit also opened offices in Rock Hill and Spartanburg, South Carolina. A spokesperson for the firm said it plans to continue to grow its presence in the Southeast as well as in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.

“This is our second city in North Carolina. We entered Charlotte in 2019, and in the past year or so we also added two offices in South Carolina—all of it by growing around existing firms,” said Offit.
