Harkins Cunningham LLP (“HC”) celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017. Originally colleagues at Pepper, Hamilton & Sheetz, John Harkins and Paul Cunningham founded a partnership in 1992, focusing on putting the client’s interests first, supported by a collegial partnership with no internal competition. Select hiring of talented lawyers and staff combined with efficient, costeffective management secures the firm’s top reputation with clients and other law firms. The offices in Philadelphia and Washington DC specialize in the areas of expertise developed by the two founding partners.
John J. Harkins Jr. practices primarily in complex litigation involving issues of corporate, securities and antitrust law, contracts, intellectual property, professional liability and ERISA, frequently arguing such cases in appellate courts. He has also advised directors on their fiduciary and other duties, corporate clients on disclosure issues, special committees in the investigation of alleged corporate wrongdoing, and corporations on the defenses available to them under Pennsylvania law against hostile takeover bids.
Paul Cunningham’s practice is dedicated to assisting public and private entities in highly regulated and politicized environments through effective legal, legislative, administrative and public affairs strategies and advocacy. For profit and not for profit freight and passenger railroads have benefitted from his representation and guidance. He has extensive experience in other network and infrastructure industries, including water and power. His understanding of the core challenges facing these industries ranks among the most thorough in the legal industry.
