Kleinbard congratulates Howard J. Davis, a managing partner of the Philadelphia law firm, on his selection for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America in the area of Corporate Law in the publication’s 2017 edition.

Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. For the 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 7.3 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in almost 55,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

During his more than 30 years of experience, he has been involved in more than 300 such transactions ranging from small seed capital investments to billion dollar dispositions.

Davis is actively involved in the community serving on numerous boards including serving on the Board of Directors, the Executive Committee, and as Co-Chair of the Policy Committee, of the Committee of Seventy; the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the Abramson Center for Jewish Life.
