Montgomery McCracken announced that the lawyers of West Chester, Pa. law firm Crawford, Wilson & Ryan, LLC, an 11-attorney firm that focuses on business, corporate, real estate and land development, civil litigation and personal injury, estate, tax and family and domestic law, will be joining the firm, effective August 1, 2006. Crawford, Wilson & Ryan, LLC services clients in regional and national capacities and located throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, including the communities of West Chester, Exton, Coatesville, Downingtown and Kennett Square, as well as other Chester County locations.

Montgomery McCracken chair Steve Madva said the deal fits in with Montgomery McCracken’s strategic direction to expand and further develop the business and transactional side of the firm.

“We expect that our employee benefits and executive compensation, immigration, tax, and corporate practices to benefit from this merger. It should also have a positive impact on our environmental law practice,” said Madva. “The obvious synergies that exist between the two firm’s real estate, tax, and corporate practices make this deal attractive for both parties.”

Partners Fronefield Crawford, Jr., and Kevin J. Ryan will work primarily from Montgomery McCracken’s Berwyn office, while Thomas R. Wilson will remain in the downtown West Chester office. Of counsel attorneys Mike Imms, Julia Malloy-Good, Kim Denise Morton, Richard Morton, and Andrea Pettine and associates Jonathan Boughrum, Andrew McReynolds, and Kim Venzie are also expected to work out of suburban offices.

Crawford has built a reputation as one of Chester County’s best known real estate attorneys through two decades of successfully representing developers, builders, and municipal agencies. He has been a frequent instructor on zoning, subdivision, and land use topics for various organizations, including The Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s Environmental Law and Municipal Law Forums, Lorman Educational Services, The Brandywine Conservancy and The Pennsylvania Land Trust Alliance. Crawford graduated cum laude from Williams College in 1965 and from Yale Law School in 1968. He received a Masters in Urban Legal Studies in 1970 from George Washington University Law School. Crawford is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania.

Tom Wilson, widely recognized as a leader and educator in trial law, represents clients in real estate, products liability, automobile products liability, construction litigation, and civil trials. He is one of Chester County’s most respected litigators and has served as President of the Chester County Bar Association and the Stively Inns of the American Inns of Court. He has the distinction of certification by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a civil litigation specialist, and he is registered with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Wilson currently serves on the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association. Wilson received a J.D. degree from Temple University School of law and is admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania, the U.S. Court of Appeals, Third Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.

Known for his vigorous representation of clients before the IRS in audits, appeals and trials, Kevin Ryan focuses his practice on taxation, estate planning and administration, healthcare, and business law and transactions. He has an established reputation for bringing parties together in business transactions. Ryan frequently teaches and conducts seminars for firms and organizations in the Chester County area. Ryan graduated from Villanova University and Villanova Law School. He also earned a Masters degree in Taxation from Villanova. He is active in many community and professional organizations and is a past President of the Exton Chamber of Commerce.

“Montgomery McCracken is a prestigious firm with a long tradition of highly skilled legal work,” said Crawford. “We’re looking forward to becoming a part of this tradition and are confident our strengths will complement each other very well and lead to even greater success for the entire firm.”

This most recent move continues Montgomery McCracken’s strategic development and expansion of the firm’s business department. Within the past year, the firm has added Tray Beck and Richard King, formerly of Reed Smith and Wolf Block respectively, to its corporate practice, as well as bringing on former Common Pleas Court Judge Gene Cohen and Sula Baye to bolster its litigation department. U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel B. Rosen will also join the firm on September 1, 2006.

Madva continues, “This is an exciting time for the firm from a business perspective, and we look forward to more opportunities to continue this momentum of growth.
