From The Legal Intelligencer: Obermayer Extends Hiring Spree, Adds Municipal Services Niche

July 25, 2019

The report that the firm added five lateral partners from five different firms in just over a month was published in The Legal Intelligencer on July 23, 2019.

Tom Wyatt joined Obermayer’s Business and Finance department, launching a new niche practice area. The Municipal Services Group, led by Tom represents Pennsylvania municipal entities with infrastructure related matters, such as regulatory compliance, bulk sale and services contract negotiations and water and wastewater system purchases and sales.

“The firm is very energetic about this area of the law. They have deep and longstanding relationships with municipalities across the commonwealth, a strong environmental practice and a strong platform in Pittsburgh,” Tom said in an interview. “It gives me the opportunity to take my practice to the next level.”

David Nasatir, vice chair of the firm and chair of Obermayer’s business and finance department, stated that Tom Wyatt is considered a leading authority in utility sales.

“As we continue to think about more ground-breaking ways to enhance how we serve our municipal clients, having a bright and dynamic attorney like Tom to lead such an important and highly nuanced practice area only furthers our agenda to not only be a great Philadelphia firm, but to also be the go-to mid-Atlantic regional firm,” he said.

The article also highlights the joining of partner Nate Fox in Obermayer’s Doylestown office. He leads the firm’s zoning and land use team in Bucks County. Nate brings with him a number of clients, including American Heritage Federal Credit Union, Grace Inspired Ministries, Grand View Health, The Dreher Group and THP Investments LLC.

Earlier this month, Obermayer brought on real estate and land use partner Kellie McGowan, who heads the suburban real estate team in Doylestown. Her clients include Univest Bank, Gorski Engineering Inc. Airgas USA LLC and Doylestown Health.

In addition to McGowan, Fox and Wyatt, last month Obermayer welcomed partners Patrick Scott and Matthew Olesh.
