St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children

In a matter before the Philadelphia Orphans’ Court, the firm’s Litigation and Trusts and Estates practices collaborated to represent the interests of the St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children, a charitable successor to the St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children (formerly part of the AHERF system and now part of a for-profit hospital system), and certain major donors to and supporters of the Hospital and Foundation. As a result of the firm’s efforts, the coffers of the Foundation have been increased by $1.8 million, which will be used for the Foundation’s primary mission – the support of pediatric healthcare. The settlement of the matter has also led to a close working relationship between the Foundation and the Drexel Medical College, also a charitable successor to former-AHERF entities.
