From The Philadelphia Business Journal: Months after losing its practice leader, Obermayer Rebmann reels in Bucks land use partner

July 09, 2019

Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel’s latest addition to its Doylestown office is partner Kellie McGowan, who will lead the firm’s suburban real estate team. The announcement was originally posted in The Philadelphia Business Journal and features Kellie McGowan’s practice, focused on representing residential and commercial clients in real estate matters in Bucks and Montgomery counties as well as financial institutions in loan transactions.

Reporter Jeff Blumenthal accentuates on McGowan’s legal contribution to the expansion of the cardiac care center at Doylestown Hospital, and the development of the first residential crisis center in Bucks County – The Lodge at Lenape Valley Foundation. Univest Bank, Gorski Engineering, Airgas, and Doylestown Health are some of the clients joining her at Obermayer.

Obermayer Managing Partner Mathieu Shapiro shared his excitement about the joining of McGowan, adding that the firm  sees her a star in Bucks County.

“We are really happy with Doylestown,” Shapiro stated. “The idea of being there was to have lawyers who are well known to the community and potential clients there.”

Blumenthal reminds the readers that Obermayer entered Bucks County two years ago shortly after former U.S. Congressman Michael G. Fitzpatrick joined the firm as a partner, adding that the expansion was followed by the signing of a lease for new space in Doylestown at the Landmark Building at 10 S. Clinton St. With the firm’s plan to add more partners in Bucks County, the 4,000 square feet capacity includes room to grow as well as the ability to accommodate visiting lawyers from other offices.
