"High Swartz's real estate practice group shares my passion for representing developers and property owners while improving our communities in Greater Philadelphia. Joining Montgomery County's oldest law firm is an honor and I'm excited to contribute."
Prior to his private practice work, Sean was an associate at a large Philadelphia law firm’s commercial group where his practice included business litigation, real estate, zoning and land use. He represented real estate developers in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, Bucks County, and Delaware County. Sean also represented landlords in complex, large-scale landlord/tenant disputes.
As an associate at a large law firm in Virginia in 2018, Sean represented the claims administrator for the NFL Concussion Settlement in negotiating agreements with health systems to incorporate professionals into a diagnosing physicians network. Within the scope of the agreements, former players could be diagnosed with such neurodegenerative diseases as CTE, dementia, ALS, and Parkinson's.
Sean earned his J.D. at the University of Richmond's T.C. Williams School of Law while also obtaining his MBA at Richmond's Robins School of Business. After graduating, he served as a Judicial Intern for the Honorable Thomas N. O'Neill. Jr., United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
