We are Philadelphia Business Lawyers and Trial Lawyers, but we have handled matters in almost any location where our clients have needed our services.
Sidkoff, Pincus & Green (“SPG”) was founded in 1958 and is one of the oldest law firms in Philadelphia. Having recently surpassed our 50th anniversary, we like to think that our longevity is a testament to the quality of our lawyers’ passion, skills and results.
Greatlawyers.com is a website name that was registered for SPG in 1998 and presented to us as a gift by a grateful client after we helped him prevail in a protracted lawsuit involving breach of contract, whistle-blowing, the freeze-out of a shareholder and other complex business related issues. At first, we modestly declined to use greatlawyers.com, but eventually we were persuaded to embrace it when many of our other clients, who heard the story, told us that they agreed it was an accurate description. To see what we mean, the comments of some of our clients can be read here.
SPG is not your average law firm, and our attorneys are not your average Philadelphia business lawyers either. We look to the heroic lawyers of literature and history and embrace the belief that every client deserves the same attention and single-mindedness from their attorney. To accomplish this, our firm has stubbornly refused to allow itself to grow into one of today’s commercial behemoths that are too often characterized by multiple squadrons of “specialists” operating under an assembly line mentality that fosters attitudes of indifference and timidity in both trial lawyers and business attorneys. Instead, SPG has honed itself into a juggernaut where the following set of principles defines us:
- The firm and our clients bond into a closely knit family;
- Every challenge facing our clients drives us to become their heroes;
- To foster collaboration, we maintain open lines of communication with our clients, who are invited to reach out to us 24 hours a day;
- In standing up to the challenges of adversity or exploiting opportunities available to our clients in litigation, commercial matters and deal-making, we benefit from multiple viewpoints, diverse skills and decades of experience in legal services; and
- Our loyalty to each other and our clients translates into the philosophy that once we sign on to a client’s cause, nothing is too big, too complex or too difficult to deter us from our mission.
Our ethic consistently results in high quality, innovative, and aggressive services, performed in a cost-effective, efficient manner. Moreover, at SPG, we make every effort to understand more than just the business of law. We work hard to learn enough about our clients’ businesses to insure that the legal advice we offer and the strategies we deploy fit the unique needs of our clients to the point that our attorneys often become students of the companies that we represent. We know that our clients rely on us to be their advocates and advisers, as well as their business attorneys and trial lawyers; and therefore we recognize that we must act as fiduciaries with a solemn responsibility to always be prepared. Our work ethic and results have impressed other Philadelphia business lawyers many of whom who have been the referral attorney for cases that were too complex or difficult for them to handle. In fact, we have received referral attorney cases from law firms located in New Jersey, California, Maryland, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, Florida, Texas, Atlanta and other places throughout the United States and foreign countries.
