Duane Morris Expands in New York

Duane Morris grabbed a total of six attorneys from three different firms to add to its New York office.

Firm Chairman Sheldon Bonovitz said the acquisitions “represent another step in our commitment to growth in New York and in our plans to grow internationally.”

Three corporate attorneys with international focuses joined from Bryan Cave.

Miriam Hyman, who joined Duane Morris as a partner, focuses her practice on banking and business and public finance. She represents Latin American banks, financial institutions, businesses and high-net-worth individuals operating in the United States and overseas.

Andrew Odell joined as a partner and will work on the representation of foreign corporations in commercial matters, investments and the resolution of disputes in cross-border negotiations.

Michael Butterman counsels U.S. and Latin American clients throughout Latin America. He joined the firm as of counsel.

Joining as partners from Arent Fox were Lee Potter and Eberhard Röhm. Potter focuses on mergers and acquisitions, private equity and debt securities offerings, restructurings, bank credit facilities and general corporate advisory matters.

Röhm handles international transactional matters with Germany, other European Union countries and the United States.

Arthur Dresner joined Duane Morris as of counsel from Reed Smith. He will serve in the firm’s intellectual property practice group. Dresner’s practice is in the areas of patent litigation, licensing and transactional work. He also handles product clearance reviews and opinions, arbitration, control procedures, patent acquisition and trademarks and copyrights.
