Maryland Watch

Miles & Stockbridge is extending its reach southward with the announcement this week that the Baltimore law firm has absorbed Levan, Schimel, Belman & Abramson, a firm with offices in Columbia and Greenbelt.

Levan has 12 lawyers and concentrates in business law, administrative and labor relations law and civil litigation.

"We are increasing our presence by adding well-established, local firms and lawyers to our organization," said Miles & Stockbridge Chairman Joseph S. Welty. "With this combination, we have strengthened our firm by adding a group of outstanding lawyers."

As the firms combine, Ronald Schimel of Levan becomes a principal and director of Miles, and Ellen Koplow, president of Levan, becomes managing principal of the Columbia office of Miles.

Other lawyers at Levan are to join Miles as principals, with "of counsel" status or as associates of the firm.

The move with Levan is the latest in a series of changes at Miles. The firm recently moved its Virginia office from Fairfax to Tysons Corner.
