HARKINS CUNNINGHAM LAW FIRM COMMENCES OPERATION

 HARKINS CUNNINGHAM LAW FIRM COMMENCES OPERATION
 WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The new law firm of Harkins


Cunningham has commenced operation effective Oct. 1 in its offices in Philadelphia and Washington.
 John G. Harkins Jr. is former chairman of the Philadelphia-based Pepper, Hamilton & Scheetz, and Paul A. Cunningham is former managing partner of the Washington office of Pepper. The new firm will consist of 18 lawyers.
 "Harkins Cunningham will offer in-depth services in selected areas with lawyers who have wide experience in private practice, many of whom also have wide experience in major corporations, the Congress and a variety of governmental agencies," Harkins said.
 "The new firm will focus on complex litigation, with appellate litigation as a distinct speciality, corporate governance and problems and opportunities of all kinds involving the federal government, including taxation.
 "Our experience in all aspects of the economic, financial, accounting and tax problems facing business and the relations between business and government is unusual for any firm -- large or small," Harkins said.
 "As a small firm, however, we see a new opportunity to fashion innovative, flexible, cost-effective relationships with clients that will meet their expectations in the 1990s and enable us fully to integrate legal and policy advice into clients' strategic priorities," Harkins said.
 "We also expect to provide services to many regional and national firms that may have requirements for specialized representation and may not wish to refer matters to full-service firms."
 Resident in the Philadelphia office are John G. Harkins, Patricia L. Freeland, Eleanor Morris Illoway and Lloyd Ziff, partners, and Elizabeth M. Chachis, Karin E. Davis, Neill C. Kling, Steven A. Reed and Melinda P. Rudolph.
 Resident in the Washington office are Paul A. Cunningham, Richard B. Herzog, David A. Hirsh, Robert M. Jenkins III, A. Carl Kaseman III, Gerald P. Norton and James G. Rafferty, partners, and James M. Guinivan and Joseph L. Lakshmanan.
 The firms' offices are at 1800 One Commerce Square, 2005 Market St., Philadelphia, Pa., 19103-7042, telephone 215-851-6700, facsimile 215-851-6710; and Suite 600, 1300 19th St. N.W., Washington, D.C., 20036-1609, telephone 202-973-7600, facsimile 202-973-7610.
