Armstrong Teasdale Adds Attorney Lizl Leonardo in Philadelphia
Armstrong Teasdale announces the addition of Associate Lizl Leonardo to the firm’s Financial and Real Estate Services practice in Philadelphia. She has experience representing domestic and international clients on various legal matters involving equity transactions, acquisitions, franchise matters, other corporate matters and related transactions. She is among the more than 45 attorneys who have joined the firm in 2021 alone.

She has led and conducted multiple, large-scale due diligence projects and extensive research on organizations in the context of their strategic acquisitions, and has also negotiated and drafted transaction-related documents.
