Cozen O’Connor attorney Harmon S. Spolan recently participated in the Financial Markets Forum: Assessing the Causes and Proposed Solutions to the Current Banking Crisis, sponsored by Boenning & Scattergood Investment Banking, held at the Philadelphia Country Club. The forum, attended by more than 150 people, covered such topics as the causes of the current economic crisis; government stimulus efforts like TARP, TALF and public-private investment partnerships; the impact of the crisis on investments in bank securities; and its effect on bank merger and acquisition activity.
Spolan currently serves as chair of the Cozen O’Connor Foundation, the firm’s charitable arm. Prior to joining Cozen O’Connor in 1999, Spolan served as president of Jefferson Bank in Philadelphia. Under his 22-year leadership there, Jefferson grew to the largest, locally-headquartered, commercial bank, prior to its acquisition by Hudson United Bank. Spolan is a graduate of Temple University and its law school, and serves on the boards of Atlas America, Inc.; Coleman Cable, Inc.; and many community organizations.
