Firm Overview

Founded in 1984 as a “boutique” litigation firm, Wharton Levin Ehrmantraut & Klein has grown in numbers and scope to become one of the Mid-Atlantic’s most highly regarded law firms. Fueling that growth has been the Firm’s long-standing reputation for courtroom excellence and attentive, cost-effective representation of its clients. Of course, winning hundreds of cases over the intervening decades also has contributed significantly to the professional respect garnered by the Firm! Our original members came together from major regional practices to form a new, litigation-centric enterprise focused on exceptional service and results for their sophisticated clientele. The Firm recruits new attorneys from the best and the brightest of law school graduates, most of whom come to us after clerking for appellate or trial court judges.

Our array of widely respected lawyers has earned Wharton Levin Ehrmantraut & Klein the preeminent status of being a “go to” law firm for the defense of “bet the company” and “bet the medical license” cases. The Firm’s ranks include members of the American Board of Trial Advocates, the American College of Trial Lawyers, a past President of the Maryland civil defense Bar, and a six-term member of the Maryland high court’s prestigious Rules Committee. A very high percentage of our shareholders have been voted by their peers as “Super Lawyers,” “Best Lawyers in America,” and/or have been awarded Martindale Hubbell’s highest rating.

We offer a broad range of litigation, business and professional-oriented legal services through our Litigation and Business Practice Groups. The Firm's Litigation Group is particularly known for its skillful representation of healthcare professionals, hospitals, product manufacturers and other major business interests in the most serious and complex cases involving alleged medical malpractice, professional licensing, products liability, toxic torts, aviation crashes, commercial disputes, and other difficult civil matters. The Group's experience includes client representation on national, regional, and statewide bases. Its members have briefed and argued many of the significant appellate decisions in their practice areas.

The Firm's Business Practice Group covers all aspects of business organization, commercial and residential real property transactions, taxation of businesses and individuals, debtor and creditor rights, estate and trust administration, commercial contract matters, Uniform Commercial Code interpretation and litigation, and bank regulatory matters. Its business and corporate attorneys assist clients with the formation of corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies, the purchase and sale of businesses and business entities, secured and unsecured borrowing transactions, and the negotiation and drafting of contracts of all kinds.

The Firm's lawyers actively volunteer in leadership roles for the various professional organizations to which they belong. They also serve on a variety of governing and advisory boards for civic, educational and religious institutions, and regularly publish and lecture in their areas of expertise.
