Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania

The historic City of Philadelphia is also the largest county in Pennsylvania, and the City has seen tremendous growth over the last ten years as evidenced by the revitalization of historic areas such as Old City with the Constitution Center and the recent success of Northern Liberties and the revitalization of the Waterfront including the Navy Yard. The expanding Convention Center and recent growth around Temple University is pulling the revitalization of Center City northward towards Temple’s campus. West Philadelphia has already seen the impact a revitalized university campus can provide.

Danziger Shapiro & Leavitt brings its business law experience to many small and medium-sized companies in Philadelphia. Whether it is negotiating your commercial lease, drafting company documents (purchase orders, standard terms and conditions, or employment agreements, etc…) or selling or buying a business, we stand ready to take care of all your business needs in a professional and cost sensitive manner. As an example of the breadth and scope of the services we can provide, we recently completed the sale for one of our clients of a medium sized industrial property. This deal was completed in a cost effective manner despite the complex zoning and environmental issues that we had to successfully navigate for our client.

Our firm has also had great litigation success in Philadelphia County. In fact, we just recently concluded a case where an unsuccessful bidder filed a lawsuit attempting to stop the sale of commercial real estate owned by our client to the highest bidder. Not only were the lawyers at Danziger Shapiro & Leavitt able to obtain a Court order putting an end to the senseless litigation that was commenced by the losing bidder, but we also guided our client through the process of making sure the highest bidder remained interested in the property and would not drop his bid despite the court process and changing economic climate for real estate.

Please contact us and let us show you how invaluable we can be to your business. We are located in the historic Independence Mall section of Philadelphia right across the street from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Adam has been my corporate attorney for over 10 years. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He efficiently moves through the judicial system and always keeps the best interest of his client in the foreground. Janet
★★★★★
We hired Adam to represent us for a patent dispute. He was excellent from the very beginning. He was thorough, detailed, honest, forthright, succinct, and available to us for questions at all times. Needless to say he achieved the best outcome we could have hoped for, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I only wish I could have given him a check mark on all of the attributes listed on LinkedIn, but it would only allow 3. Matt

All of us at Be a Part of the Conversation are indebted to Doug Leavitt and the staff at Danziger Shapiro & Leavitt for their guidance in helping us to establish and grow our nonprofit organization. Doug has been an invaluable resource, providing insight and understanding from the very beginning. In addition to answering our endless questions, he is also incredibly proactive – tirelessly working to ensure that our organization is moving forward in the best light possible. I honestly do not know where we would be today without the support and generosity of Doug and the team at Danziger Shapiro & Leavitt. Kim

We retained Doug to help us in a business dispute regarding several investments we had in restaurants and real estate in Cape May. Doug proved to be skilled in both litigation and negotiation, as well as reducing the settlement to writing, which required a thoughtful approach and high attention to detail to protect out interests because we had to do take back financing. The security agreements had to be carefully written so we could take back the restaurant and IP if the need arose- which it did! Thankfully everything was in place and Doug was able to get everything back and we came out unharmed. It is clear to us that Doug truly cares about his clients. Unless something like this happens to you, you wouldn't know how important it is to have the right attorney. We do. Brian

I am an officer in a Civil Engineering firm in New Jersey with over 45 employees and have retained many attorneys in the past. However, Doug Leavitt has helped my firm in reviewing and developing new corporate documents and professional agreements. Doug is an excellent attorney who is very personable and knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Paul
