In a state where there is no shortage of good options, Law360’s “Pennsylvania Powerhouse” firms have stood out for their sizeable presence in the Keystone state and significant regional accomplishments in the last two years. Cozen O’Connor has proven itself as a full-service Pennsylvania Powerhouse firm, undergoing a rapid expansion in the last two decades that has helped it win recognition. After spending three decades focusing on insurance and boutique litigation, Cozen O’Connor began an aggressive expansion initiative in 1994 to grow its real estate, corporate and commercial litigation practices. After establishing a solid presence around those practices, the firm was able to branch out into health care, intellectual property, energy and utility work, transportation and labor law.
Since then, the firm has yielded impressive work in recent years, including representing Liberty Property Trust on the new Comcast tower; representing GlaxoSmithKline in its relocation to the Navy Yard; representing Philadelphia-area cigar manufacturer John Middleton Inc., in one of the biggest acquisitions ever handled by a Philadelphia law firm; representing Utz Quality Foods, Comcast and Aramark Holdings Corp., in intellectual property matters; and representing a notable list of clients in the health care market, including the University of Pennsylvania Health System, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Crozer-Keystone Health System, Mercy Health System and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.
