Firm Bio

Griesing Law, LLC is a full-service women-owned and operated law firm based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with satellite offices in Arizona, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio. We are proudly certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by WBENC, enabling us to tackle opportunities specifically intended to promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Since its inception, the Firm has been committed to the promotion and advancement of women and diverse lawyers as we believe that a more inclusive legal profession is a more successful one. Griesing Law aims to combat the forces that keep women and minorities out of leadership roles and from staying in the profession at all, which we embody through our Firm’s culture, the long standing relationships we’ve built and maintained with women and diverse attorneys, and our continued commitment to institutions and organizations that foster inclusivity in the legal field.

In January 2010, during one of the roughest economic downturns across all sectors, we launched our Firm with only a handful of clients. Today, our original three-person team has grown into a team of 16, including 10 lawyers, with four offices across the county, handling 1k+ matters for 500+ clients. We represent Fortune 500 companies, government entities, closely-held companies, non-profits, and individuals in alternative dispute resolution, complex commercial litigation, corporate transactions, employment, ethics and professional responsibility, government affairs, hospitality, trusts and estates, and workers’ compensation matters. We also provide diversity, equity and inclusion, anti-discrimination and sexual harassment training, conduct confidential investigations, and review, draft and update workplace policies. Our clients come from an array of industries, including chemical, communications, consulting and professional services, financial services, foodservice, government, hospitality, insurance, e-commerce, manufacturing, non-profits, pharmaceuticals, real estate, retail and technology. Our team is licensed in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina.

Our lawyers are AV rated and have experience working in house, serving in government and as senior lawyers at top Am Law 100 firms. We are highly sought speakers and respected authorities in our areas of expertise, frequently acknowledged by our peers and clients for top-notch service and results. Our team has received many accolades for professional achievement and civic leadership including: Best Lawyers, Chambers & Partners, Super Lawyers, Client Choice, Pennsylvania’s Best 50 Women in Business, Philadelphia Business Journal’s Women of Distinction, Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best of the Bar, American Bar Association’s Excellence in Legal Writing Award, The Legal Intelligencer’s Lawyers on the Fast Track, among others.

Notably, Griesing Law founder and Managing Member Francine Griesing was chosen by The Philadelphia Inquirer as a Lifetime Achiever in the Law (2018) and Diversity and Inclusion (2019). Fran was also shortlisted as Diversity & Inclusion Lawyer of the Year (2020) and the Firm was shortlisted as Outstanding Firm for Furthering Diversity & Inclusion (2020-2021) by Chambers Diversity & Inclusion Awards North America. In addition, the Firm was a recipient of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s H. Robert Fiebach Award (2021), which recognizes Pennsylvania law firms that have implemented initiatives to help women attorneys advance their careers. Furthermore, the Firm was awarded by in-house counsel as the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms’ Law Firm MVP (2013) and as SmartCEO’s Philadelphia Law Firm of the Year (2014).
