Timoney Knox Expands In Lancaster Through Merger

Fort Washington, Pa.-based Timoney Knox merged in July with the Walmer Law Offices of Lancaster.

Litigator Richard L. Caplan opened a Lancaster office for Timoney Knox in November 2006 and sole practitioner Mark F. Walmer will be the second attorney in the office.

“When Richard Caplan opened our office in Lancaster, he started to identify sole practitioners and small firms that would help us grow our office and our specialty of complex litigation,” firm Managing Partner George Riter said in a statement. “He identified Mark, who has a terrific reputation with a specialty in criminal defense and some transactional work.”

The firm said it expects Walmer to continue his criminal defense practice, including white collar defense and complex civil litigation.

Riter said in an interview that the client demographics in Lancaster are attractive to the firm’s goals.

While the market is close-knit, with many out-of-town firms servicing clients there from Harrisburg or Philadelphia, Riter said he wanted the firm to find an attorney on the ground who could more efficiently service local clients.

Timoney Knox already had some corporate clients in the market and is looking to handle complex commercial litigation with the possibility of expanding into more of a general service office, Riter said.

He said Caplan has learned that many local Lancaster firms seek assistance in handling complex civil litigation cases, so the firm wants to be a supplement to their work.

Riter said the office could slowly migrate toward general services, including trusts and estates. He said the firm has received several inquiries from other sole practitioners in the market. For now, Timoney Knox will monitor the growth prospects and focus on integration of the recent merger, Riter said.

    I wonder how this relates in accordance to spam and the international law? There is a website named thesqueakywheel.com which basically rights a possible and unproven wrong with another more definite wrong by relentless spamming. Here is a great article on this website and what they actually do:
