Ballard Spahr real estate attorneys were involved in projects that appear among the Philadelphia Business Journal's 2010 Best Real Estate Deals, recognizing the year's top building sales, leases, and construction in the region.

Philip B. Korb and Neil Sklaroff, partners in Ballard Spahr's Philadelphia office, advised on land development and condominium matters for 10 Rittenhouse Square, which won in the category "Best Residential Project/Urban." The newly constructed high-rise condominium pairs 135 luxury condos with retail and restaurant facilities.
