Firm Profile

Kleinbard LLC

Firm Details

Kleinbard was established in 1939 and is a mid-sized regional law firm based in center city Philadelphia.  The Firm comprises attorneys who have previously practiced and trained at large national and international law firms.  This juxtaposition enables us to provide the level of sophisticated legal services you would expect to find at large firms but with a non-bureaucratic small-firm approach to staffing engagements and legal billing.  Kleinbard offers legal services to a broad range of clients in business and finance, labor and employment, government relations, political law, intellectual property, litigation, real estate, and tax and estate planning.  We represent closely-held businesses, public companies, financial institutions, governmental and quasi-governmental agencies, charter schools and universities, nonprofits, and individuals located regionally and throughout the United States.
