Our firm's lawyers have experience and expertise in commercial real estate transactions, general civil trial and appellate litigation practice in all courts, design and construction contract negotiations, and general corporate, business, and financing advice and transactions. We are fortunate to enjoy a practice that has brought us a steady stream of challenging and sophisticated legal problems to solve with our clients. We are also fortunate to enjoy a firm environment that permits us to give our clients individual attention and responsive service.
In our real estate practice, we are United States real estate counsel and general business counsel to a leading international furniture retailer. We handle lease negotiations and other real estate transactions for one of the mid-Atlantic's dominant supermarket chains. We represent the largest non-sectarian operator of private schools in the United States in real estate acquisition, development, disposition, and financing transactions. We act as local counsel to institutional lenders and owners of investment grade real estate projects of all kinds. We represent Delaware Valley regional developers, retailers, and owners in the purchase, development, leasing, financing, and sale of significant real estate projects.
Our trial lawyers have experience and expertise in both trial and appellate practice as well as in many different subject matter areas, including the telecommunications industry, commercial real estate, construction, government contracts, banking, bankruptcy, pharmaceuticals, corporate and partnership governance, employment, insurance coverage, civil and criminal antitrust and securities, libel, and professional malpractice (non-medical). Our trial lawyers have handled cases on behalf of internationally-owned and Fortune 500 and other large publicly- and privately-held United States corporations, joint ventures and partnerships, major banks and hospitals, heavy and highway contractors, general and specialty contractors, architectural, accounting, and law firms, as well as individuals and small businesses in the mid Atlantic region and elsewhere. We helped a client in the telecommunications industry initiate, manage, and pursue to conclusion hundreds of lawsuits as part of an overall national litigation strategy; and our success was such that we were asked to share our experience and expertise with lawyers charged with implementing the same strategy in other regions.
In our general business practice, our lawyers represent clients spanning all segments of the business community. Our business lawyers provide: start-up, formation, and growth planning; advice and drafting concerning ownership, employment, consulting, and severance agreements; structuring, negotiation, and preparation of contracts in connection with licensing and financing arrangements, and sales, acquisitions, and mergers of businesses and assets; and ongoing business advice in connection with matters such as intellectual property, litigation, leasing, taxation, restructuring, and employer-employee relations. We also counsel business investors and executives in financial and estate planning.
