Why we created PLG:
Pritzker Legal Group (“PLG”) was a natural response for increased engagement between Philadelphia’s private real estate sector and Philadelphia local government.  

Serving the market as a specialty real estate law firm, PLG has been credited with redefining the support of today’s real estate and development demands. 

Bringing significant experience in both the private legal sector and government, PLG’s attorneys are dedicated to ensuring a collaborative approach that results in the seamless navigation through the multifaceted real estate and development process.

The goal of our services is simple – evaluate, define, and propel all aspects of client real estate projects past zoning, legal and governmental barriers to completion.


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, community outreach and engagement, and government relations in Philadelphia. 

Our team joins PLG with unique experience and perspective having worked for City Council, the Philadelphia Zoning Board of Adjustment ("ZBA"), state and local courts, prominent Zoning & Land Use practices, and Philadelphia-based businesses.
