As in any business-heavy economy, there are plenty of lawyers in 267 who try to ensure that business deals go smoothly, and that legal wrongs are righted.

The 267 area is also known for innovation. In the 20th Century, many retail stores (some of which went on to become national chains) set up shop in the area, taking advantage of the influx of affordable mass-produced goods that the industrial revolution created. They experimented with novel business models, many of which are now standard. Lawyers likely played a large role in developing, and protecting, these new business models, allowing them to become successful.

The 267 area is home to several American "firsts" including the first advertising agency, university, cancer hospital, zoo, and bank, among many others. From its foundation, Philadelphia and the 267 area code have been major centers for the practice of law, as well, with thousands of lawyers actively practicing in the area. Many Pennsylvania lawyers are members of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
