In Philadelphia, we invest deeply in the success of our community, and we are privileged to consistently serve in integral roles that grow the city. Our real estate attorneys represent the region's top business, government, community, and civic leaders, and have shaped the success of iconic projects throughout the city, including museums, performing arts centers, educational institutions, major sports venues, mixed-use complexes, and religious sites. We combine multidisciplinary real estate capabilities with strong relationships with elected officials, government agencies, civic groups, and the media to achieve clients' most challenging objectives. Especially in the areas of zoning and land use, leasing, complex development, finance, and construction, we strive to maintain our reputation as the go-to law firm for real estate legal advice, counsel, and strategy.
Our practice is transforming Philadelphia's skyline and real estate landscape. Our attorneys are shaping deals worth more than $2 billion, including the development of the Comcast Innovation Tower, major multi-family projects, and top-grade scientific facilities in University City. Our attorneys have worked on major enhancements to the Philadelphia Airport and Citizen’s Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Our attorneys have also made an impact through extensive pro bono work, including work for Natural Lands in the effort to protect historic Stoneleigh Gardens from development by Lower Merion School District.
