About Fox Rothschild LLP

With more than 700 attorneys practicing across 22 offices coast to coast serving clients in various industries, Fox Rothschild doesn't put all of its eggs in one basket. And as the firm continues to grow, it is building an impressive client list along the way.

Sly Like a Fox-Who Wants to Open a Lot of Offices

Founded in 1907, Philadelphia-based Fox Rothschild has grown to be a well-established player in the business, corporate and securities, entertainment, labor and employment, employee benefits, real estate, creditors' rights, litigation, and estates law fields. Fox Rothschild's client list includes closely held businesses, small public companies, and tax-exempt organizations as well as high-net-worth individuals and celebrities (including Oscar nominee Angela Bassett, rapper/actor Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and producer/author TD Jakes), and Fortune 500 companies like Wells Fargo, Walmart, Merck & Co., and Xerox.

Over the last several year, Fox Rothschild has expanded into several new regions In January 2016, the firm merged with the Minneapolis-based Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly. Through this-the firm's most significant merger to date-Fox Rothschild gained 82 attorneys and boosted its attorney headcount to more than 700 attorneys. In October 2014, Fox Rothschild entered the Lone Star State and opened its 20th office nationwide, adding 18 lawyers through a merger with Dallas-based David & Goodman P.C.  And in April 2015, the firm entered the Windy City market in an expansion that marked its first foray into the Midwest and its 21st location nationwide. The initial group of attorneys who opened the office brought with them a well-respected regulated cannabis practice to the firm. They currently represent four of the 20 licensed growers in Illinois and have experience assisting growers and dispensaries with regulatory compliance and general business matters.

Chalk Boardwalk Empires

In addition to its more mainstream departments, Fox Rothschild has developed experience in niche practices, including entertainment, sports, and casino law. Capitalizing on the brand-building revolution taking place in the entertainment industry, the firm's entertainment attorneys devise strategies for celebrities and businesses to develop and capitalize their brands using a variety of delivery platforms and digital media outlets. Fox attorneys have also been associated with numerous well-known and award-winning television programs, motion pictures, and music releases. The firm has hosted annual star-studded events in Los Angeles to coincide with the Grammy and Emmy awards, and attorneys such as Entertainment Department Chair Darrell Miller and Partner Lori Landew continue to earn industry accolades from The Hollywood Reporter and Variety magazine for their representation of industry clients.

In the sports realm, it was a Fox Rothschild attorney-Litigation Department Co-Chair John Haggerty-to whom five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova turned for legal assistance. John has served as trusted counsel to the famous athlete for the past decade and guided her through her recent legal troubles with the International Tennis Foundation, which imposed a two-year suspension for an unintentional doping violation. John is now spearheading the appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, based in Switzerland.

On the gaming front, Fox Rothschild attorneys served as New Jersey regulatory counsel for Ireland-based Paddy Power in its recent multibillion-dollar merger with UK-based Betfair, creating Paddy Power Betfair PLC. The deal creates the world's largest public online betting and gaming company, including the operation of an Internet gaming website in New Jersey. The firm's gaming team also served as Maryland regulatory counsel for the financing of MGM Resorts International's National Harbor project, a $1.3 billion project expected to be completed by the end of 2016 that will create thousands of local jobs and bolster the regional economy. Additionally, a team of Fox Rothschild gaming attorneys served as New Jersey and gaming regulatory counsel for MGM Resorts in a deal to purchase the remaining 50 percent stake in Borgata Casino & Spa from Boyd Gaming Corp., valued at $900 million. The firm's attorneys have also helped obtain casino and liquor licenses for big names in the restaurant industry like Wolfgang Puck, Hard Rock Café, and PF Chang's China Bistro.


May 2016
Rising Up

Fox Rothschild elevated more than a dozen attorneys to partner throughout its national network of offices.

Friends with Benefits (& Compensation)

The firm formally established a nationwide Employee Benefits & Compensation Department, cementing its commitment to advising companies of all sizes with their pension, benefits and executive compensation programs. The addition of Fox's Minneapolis office in January almost doubled the size of its national employee benefits roster. According to firmwide managing partner Mark L. Silow, "Formalizing the team into a firm department was a logical next step for us as this is a pivotal practice area that plays a significant role in helping clients successfully manage and grow their business operations."

April 2016
Keeping Nordic on Track

Fox Rothschild successfully defended the appeal of a $6.4 million judgment they secured for a Norwegian health products distributor in its suit against a NY company for reneging on a contract that granted exclusive rights to distribute in Scandinavia. Fox has represented Nature's Plus Nordic AS (NPN), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dermanordic A/S, a leading health and beauty care distributor in the Nordic region distributing such brands as bareMinerals, Elizabeth Arden PRO, Bliss, Molton Brown and Elemis, in this six-year dispute. The U.S. Court of Appeals decision cleared the way for NPN to collect the $6.4 million judgment.

January 2016

A team of Fox Rothschild corporate insurance attorneys gained approval from the State of New Jersey's Department of Banking and Insurance (NJDOBI) in January 2016 to make Deborah Heart and Lung Center the 21st captive in New Jersey and the first nonprofit 501(c)(3) on-shore captive in New Jersey.

Privacy Please

In January 2016, as part of the firm's ongoing commitment to protecting the confidential and personal information of clients and employees, it named Fox partner Elizabeth G. Litten as its first HIPAA Privacy Officer. This announcement followed on the heels of the firm naming Fox partner Mark McCreary as its first Chief Privacy Officer in September 2015. Both positions complement the firm's robust data privacy and health law practices and further the firm's mission to protect sensitive data for clients and employees.

December 2015
Making a Subaru a Sabaru

A team of 15 Fox Rothschild attorneys helped close a deal to bring Subaru of America Inc.'s North American headquarters to Camden, NJ. Subaru broke ground on construction of its 250,000-square-foot facility in December 2015 and plans to complete the project by the end of 2017. This deal was selected by the New Jersey Chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, as its 2016 Office Deal of the Year award recipient and was named to the Philadelphia Business Journal's list of Best Real Estate Deals of 2015.
