PHILADELPHIA, PA – Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor Lauren P. McKenna released the following tribute to Bernard Lee, a well-known Philadelphia real estate lawyer and member at Cozen O’Connor, who died on November 7.

“We were saddened to hear of the sudden and tragic passing of Bernard Lee, who had been a member of the Association since 1977,” McKenna said. “In addition to his role in prominent real estate development projects throughout the City, Bernard was an active member of our Business Law and Real Property Sections.
