Alan Nochumson Named Finalist For Power Players Category In The Legal Intelligencer’s 2024 Legal Awards

Written by: Alan Nochumson

Nochumson P.C. is proud to announce that founding partner Alan Nochumson has been named as a finalist for the Power Players category of The Legal Intelligencer’s 2024 Pennsylvania Legal Awards. The legal awards highlight the great work and achievements across the full breadth of the legal communities in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

The Power Player award honors attorneys who, like Alan, through their advocacy, have made a significant impact in 2023 on public policy, legislation or jurisprudence in Pennsylvania or Delaware. The Legal Intelligencer will announce winners in finalist categories at the Pennsylvania Legal Awards event in May.

Alan’s nomination included a conglomerate of client testimonials–including mentions of his “promptness, candor, and extensive knowledge of the city’s rules, regulations, and zoning processes” along with the fact that him and his team have filed more zoning appeals than any other law firm in the city (6% of all variances that were submitted to the ZBA since 2018).

The nomination also included that, in addition to practicing law and mentoring associates at the firm, Alan is an active member of Philadelphia’s robust real estate community. He is regularly appointed by the court for real estate matters as a hearing officer, regularly conducts continuing legal education seminars for the benefit of attorneys, and teaches a “Real Estate Practice” course at Temple University’s Fox School of Business. He has also written for over 20 years (and continues to write) a monthly real estate column for The Legal Intelligencer.

Alan has repeatedly been recognized by his peers as an attorney who represents his clients well and with a great degree of success. He was awarded Best of the Bar for Real Estate by the Philadelphia Business Journal in 2020 and an Influencer of Real Estate by The Philadelphia Inquirer in 2019, amongst other accolades. He is also active in both the Philadelphia legal and real estate communities, formerly serving as Chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division as well as currently as a member of the Temple American Inn of Court.

The nomination also detailed that, in addition to advising clients and managing Nochumson P.C., Alan took a unique approach to overcoming pandemic challenges. While most firms downsized, Alan expanded his office into a new space that is more than double the size of the last one. The office is in many senses a metaphor for Alan’s approach to law and managing a law firm–it cultivates an inviting and open atmosphere that is as ripe for practicing the law as it is for business development, cross-selling, and networking.

The Power Players finalist will be announced at the Pennsylvania Legal Awards 2024 event at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel on May 15th, 2024.
