From The Philadelphia Business Journal: Former Philadelphia City Council candidate switches law firms

July 25, 2019

Tom Wyatt, former Philadelphia City Council candidate, joined Obermayer’s Business and Finance department. He chairs the newly added municipal services practice area, representing 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 announcement was originally published in The Philadelphia Business Journal and it highlights Obermayer’s recent expansion, adding five new partners this summer, focusing on younger lawyers with growing practices.

“Earlier this year, we decided that we want to move from a Philadelphia firm to more of a regional firm,” said David Nasatir, Obermayer’s vice chairman and business and finance department chairman. “We started talking to people and found some mutual interest.”

Reporter Jeff Blumenthal also points out the joining of Nate Fox, who heads Obermayer’s suburban land use team in the firm’s Doylestown office. Nate along with Kellie McGowan, who joined earlier in July and leads the firm’s suburban real estate team, will give Obermayer a deeper suburban land use practice.

In addition to McGowan, Fox and Wyatt, last month Obermayer welcomed Patrick Scott, a partner in the firm’s Business & Finance Department, who will likely spend at least part of his time in West Conshohocken.

The article recalls that Obermayer expanded its regional presence in 2013 after the opening of its West Conshohocken office and with the firm’s presence in Doylestown Obermayer became one of the few large or midsized Philadelphia law firms to plant its flag in Bucks County.
