Philadelphia’s Collaborative Interface Between the Private Sector & City Government

Pritzker Law Group

Philadelphia’s Collaborative Interface Between the Private Sector & City Government
 
Pritzker Law Group ("PLG"), co-founded by twin attorneys, Adam and Rachael Pritzker, was born out of the fundamental imperative of taking a far more collaborative approach to real estate development, transactions, community outreach and engagement, and government relations in Philadelphia and its surrounding counties in New Jersey. 
 
Our team at PLG is armed with unique experiences and perspectives, having worked for City Council, the Philadelphia Zoning Board of Adjustment ("ZBA"), state and local courts, prominent Zoning & Land Use practices, and additional Philadelphia-based businesses.
 
PLG helps some of the most prominent and innovative developers, as well as individuals, tackle some of the issues inherent with land use. PLG's goal is to make sure all parties involved, from the client to the community, feel comfort and a sense of pride in all projects we have the pleasure of working on.

Bethany, Esq.

Associate Attorney,
Member of PA Bar
J.D., Villanova Law School
M.B.A., Villanova School of Business
Bethany is a jack-of-all-trades in the legal and business worlds. After getting her J.D./M.B.A at Villanova, Bethany headed to New York City to work in compliance for a Fortune 500 investment bank. While there, she was responsible for reviewing potential investment deals in the corporate, real estate and infrastructure sectors, and drafting internal policies and procedures to comply with government regulations.
 
After growing tired of being constantly surrounded by Giants fans, Bethany returned to Philadelphia to practice law in a more traditional setting. She spent the next two years working in both plaintiffs and defense personal injury law at mid-sized firms in the Philadelphia area. There, Bethany honed her litigation skills, ability to draft court pleadings and motions, and learned the ins and outs of civil procedure in the courts of common pleas throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, most notably Philadelphia.
 
Over the years, Bethany watched Rachael and Adam grow their business from a concept to reality, and knew she wanted to join them when the time was right. Bethany has now transitioned her legal career towards real estate, zoning and land use, while also expanding PLG with her litigation background. A Philly-suburbs native, Bethany hopes to also grow the business further into the surrounding counties of Philadelphia.
