Recognized as a "lawyer on the fast track" by American Lawyer Media, Alan Nochumson takes pride in "providing clients with practical and creative solutions to complex issues." Alan focuses his practice in real estate law, litigation, employment and labor law, and land use and zoning.
Last night, at the kind invitation of the wonderful Natalie Klyashtorny we attended the Nochumson firm holiday party at the sleek Bar 17 in the landmark Warwick Hotel and Residences just steps from Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. A former Chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, Natalie is one of the most energetic young lawyers in the city and serves as Counsel to the Nochumson firm. She too as been recognized as a "lawyer on the fast track."
We saw so many luminaries of the local legal community at the party including Dechert PR gurus Mark Tarasiewicz and Beth Huffman, the great Scott Sigman, Joe Prim, Fran Greisling, Lisa Goldstein, Eric Weitz, and one of the nicest guys and finest lawyers we've ever met, Harper Dimmerman. We also chatted with Kim Jessum and Jim Wells. Jim is part of the Haines Team at the firm of Haines and Associates led by former Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor Cliff Haines. Kim is with the Stadley Ronon firm and Kim informs us that she will run for the post of Assistant Treasurer of the Philadelphia Bar Association in 2009. We feel that Kim is a sure winner and while we're talking about Stradley, let's send a shout out to partner Andre Dennis and Chief Marketing Officer Gary Bagin - two of our favorite people.
Christmas is a wonderful time to mingle with old friends and make new ones and this Christmas seems to be no exception. As we move right along toward the Big Day we'll keep you posted regarding our activities.
BTW: Throngs poured out of the orchestra and ballet performances in the city last night and South Broad Street buildings were lit in bright alternating colors celebrating the season.
Now, everyone repeat after me: "Merry Christmas!"
