Matt McClure, a seasoned real estate attorney and partner at Ballard Spahr, has had an outsized impact on the city of Philadelphia during the past year—with a key role in multiple transformative development projects.

“At the end of the day, all of these projects are successful thanks to a tremendous team effort,” said Mr. McClure. “It’s an honor to work with such a talented group and it’s a great honor to represent our clients on such transformative matters.”
