The Firm Has Welcomed Six New Attorneys Since Q4 2018

The closing months of 2018 and the early months of 2019 have been busy for Partridge Snow & Hahn (PS&H). Since October, the firm has welcomed six new attorneys — one Partner, three Counsel and two Associates. The new attorneys add depth to the firm’s existing practices and expand our offerings in areas including Employment; Commercial Restructuring & Asset Recovery; Banking & Financial Institutions Regulatory Compliance; and Charitable & Non-Profit Organizations.

“We are proud and excited to welcome our new colleagues, who bring experience and depth in areas of practice that will help us better serve our clients,” said PS&H Managing Partner Howard Merten. “Our goal is to grow in ways that enable us to deliver sophisticated, efficient legal representation to our clients. The addition of intelligent and dedicated attorneys is the foundation of that growth and, our continued success.”

PS&H recently launched a new website at, that helps to profile the firm’s new lawyers as well as the firm’s clients and our services. “Most law firm websites look alike and sound alike,” explained Howard . “We believe that our firm isn’t like other firms, and we wanted our website to reflect this. “Our law firm is built around relationships, and we do our best to partner with clients to see that their business goals are met. We put relationships first, and wanted a website that gave us the ability to put clients front and center there as well. And so we built a site that showcases our services, helps tell our clients’ success stories, and gives us the ability to promote our clients’ services and products,” continued Howard. Today, nine clients are displayed on the firm’s homepage, but the firm will continue to expand on those stories and encourages clients to contact their relationship manager if they are interested in participating.
