DILWORTH LAWYERS TO JOIN OBERMAYER

 DILWORTH LAWYERS TO JOIN OBERMAYER
 PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Obermayer, Rebmann, Maxwell &


Hippel, a Philadelphia law firm, announced that effective Jan. 1, 1992, Thomas Leonard, a senior partner at Dilworth, Paxson, Kalish & Kauffman, co-chairman of its litigation department and a permanent member of its executive committee, will join the firm.
 Leonard is a former controller for the city of Philadelphia and currently co-chairman of the Philadelphia mayor-elect, Ed Rendell's transition team. Leonard will become chairman of Obermayer's litigation department and a member of its management committee which includes Paul C. Heintz, Martin Weinberg, Robert I. Whitelaw, Jeffrey B. Rotwitt and Charles M. Golden.
 The move was announced today by Whitelaw, Obermayer's managing partner, and Leonard. Along with Leonard, two other Dilworth lawyers, Paul Diamond and Cathleen Curran Myers, will join Obermayer as partners.
 According to Whitelaw, Leonard's joining the firm will provide significant immediate and long-term benefits for both parties. "Obermayer's nationally respected real estate department and expanding business department are encountering an increasingly complex level of business and commercial litigation," stated Whitelaw. "Thomas Leonard and the other partners will provide the resources for Obermayer to continue to meet the needs of its clients well into the nineties with the highest level of business and environmental litigation support," he concluded.
 Leonard characterized the move with equal enthusiasm. "There are significant mutually beneficial opportunities. Obermayer has a fine reputation and is well-managed. Our present and future clients will benefit greatly from this union," he stated.
 Obermayer, founded in 1904 and headquartered in Philadelphia with offices in Haddonfield, N.J., Harrisburg and Bucks County, Pa., is organized into seven practice areas including corporate and real estate, labor and employee relations, tax and estates, environmental, administrative and regulatory, litigation, and financial reorganization. Its client base includes large and small businesses, private and public entities, and individuals located primarily in Pennsylvania and the Northeast.
