From The Legal Intelligencer: Dilworth Paxson Loses Co-Chief Operating Officer to Obermayer

July 09, 2021

Brett Wiltsey, whose practice can be divided into three categories: outside general counsel for businesses, special counsel for municipalities, and representation of financial institutions,  joined Obermayer’s Business and Finance department at Mount Laurel, NJ, office on July 1. In an interview for The Legal Intelligencer, Brett said his move coincides with a build-up of client demand following court closures and business interruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic and sought to practice law at a firm that was “more fast-paced and had a little more depth on the corporate side.” 

Brett added that he also wanted to play a leading role in the growth of Obermayer’s business and finance department and its expansion across New Jersey.

“I like to help lawyers grow their books of business and I like to attract laterals; that’s what I did at Dilworth, and frankly I’m pretty good at it,” Brett said in an interview. “I know [Obermayer] financially is sound and I know the corporate department is in good shape.”​

Mathieu Shapiro, managing partner of Obermayer, stated that over the last year, the firm has expanded its business and finance practice for New Jersey and Pennsylvania clients, seeking the likes of a well-rounded practitioner like Wiltsey to broaden the scope of legal services on offer to clients.

“To add someone of Brett’s stature in New Jersey is a phenomenal opportunity for us,” Mathieu said.
