Jonathan Scott Goldman is a partner in the firm’s Commercial Litigation group and serves as chair of its national State Attorneys General team. He rejoined the firm in September 2019 after serving two and a half years as Executive Deputy Attorney General, running the Civil Law Division at the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General.
Mark Lee is a partner and trial attorney in the firm’s White Collar Defense & Investigations practice group and previously served as an acclaimed federal prosecutor. He also serves as co-chair of Blank Rome's firmwide Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
Jared Klein is of counsel in the firm’s Real Estate group and brings over a decade of experience notably representing some of Philadelphia’s leading educational institutions, businesses, and individuals, and regularly appears before the City of Philadelphia Zoning Board of Adjustment.
