Litigation has been a prominent part of Kramon & Graham’s work since its founding in 1975, and the majority of its attorneys listed in Maryland Super Lawyers are with the firm’s litigation group.

In addition, Graham, Ulwick, Arthur, Genth, Bourgeois, Shuster, Askew and Gollogly defend professional liability claims brought against other attorneys and law firms.
The firm’s real estate group has a very strong presence throughout Maryland. Scherr and Southard represent developers and entrepreneurs in large-scale and other complex real estate transactions and financing, commercial and residential development projects, and commercial leasing.
