PARTNERS IN PEPPER HAMILTON TO FORM SEPARATE FIRM

 PARTNERS IN PEPPER HAMILTON TO FORM SEPARATE FIRM
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Edward W. Madeira Jr.,


acting chairman of the 300-lawyer law firm of Pepper, Hamilton & Scheetz, announced today that the former chairman, John G. Harkins Jr., and the former managing partner of the Washington office, Paul A. Cunningham, are resigning effective Oct. 1, 1992, to form the law firm of Harkins Cunningham, with offices in Philadelphia and Washington. They will be joined by Lloyd Ziff and Patricia Freeland, partners in the Philadelphia office, as well as by four partners in the Washington office, Messrs. Carl Kaseman, Gerald Norton, Richard Herzog and Robert Jenkins. The new firm is expected to consist initially of 15-20 lawyers.
 The resignation of the five Washington and three Philadelphia partners is entirely amicable.
 Edwin M. Martin Jr., the managing partner of Pepper's D.C. office, noted, "The 37 lawyers in Pepper's D.C. office wish Harkins Cunningham well, and we anticipate numerous collaborations with them in the future."
 On behalf of Harkins Cunningham, Harkins noted that "Pepper, Hamilton will continue its tradition as a strong, full-service law firm. I am looking forward to forming a streamlined firm that will offer in-depth services in selected areas. The new group is made up of lawyers having wide experience in Pepper, as well as in major corporations and a variety of governmental agencies. Our new firm will focus on complex litigation and government regulation, including appellate litigation as a distinct specialty, corporate governance and problems and opportunities of all kinds involving the federal government, including taxation. We see a new challenge in fashioning innovative, flexible, cost-effective relationships with clients that will meet changing client expectations in the 1990s and that will enable us fully to integrate legal and policy advice into clients' strategic priorities. We expect also to provide services as 'lawyers' lawyers' to many fine regional and national firms (including Pepper, Hamilton) that may have requirements for specialized representation and may not wish to refer matters to full- service firms."
