One of the oldest and most historically significant cities in the United States, Philadelphia is known for its pioneering spirit and ingenuity; it has always been at the forefront of progress. Once the largest city in the U.S. and the nation’s first capital city, The City of Brotherly Love has played a major role in the building of our nation.

Today’s Philadelphia has transformed itself into a thoroughly modern city, thriving in the financial, real estate and legal industries. It is home to major Fortune 500 companies and its own stock exchange. Philadelphia is a leader in the high-tech revolution. Biotechnology and pharmaceuticals are also key industries. And with four medical schools, two dental schools and two pharmacy schools, the city is one of the nation’s health care centers.

With a proud history of lawmakers and a proactive approach, Philadelphia is a culture in which StayLaw feels at home. We guide our clients through a wide range of complex business transactions, including affordable housing financings, brownfields redevelopment, and securitizations for the financial services and real estate sectors.
