We provide a full range of legal services to public and private companies — from family-run businesses to multinational corporations. We also represent charitable, medical and educational institutions both in the United States and in more than 50 countries worldwide. Our more than 40 practice areas are based on seven core services:
Fox Rothschild’s coast to coast team of corporate attorneys advises companies at all stages of development, with an eye to local, regional, national and international growth that aligns with overall corporate strategy. We work with our clients in navigating the full range of business challenges they encounter — including corporate formation, management, growth, acquisitions and transfers — as they transition through the corporate life cycle, delivering responsive representation at every critical step. We also monitor changing financial and regulatory landscapes to keep clients informed of key developments and potential impact. As many corporate transactions involve a myriad of legal practices — such as tax, intellectual property, employee benefits and labor and employment — we regularly coordinate with our colleagues to ensure clients receive full-service representation and advice. Additionally, our attorneys have extensive business networks and routinely assist clients in securing funding and identifying sources of capital.
Financial Restructuring and Bankruptcy
Our nationwide bankruptcy team provides comprehensive services in the insolvency and distressed business contexts for businesses suffering financial distress and for their owners and managers. We also represent chapter 11 and 7 debtors, creditors' committees, equity committees, chapter 11 and chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees, secured and unsecured creditors, purchasers in bankruptcy sales, investors in distressed assets and securities, and parties in bankruptcy litigation, including in preference and other avoidance actions. Our practice is anchored by a group of seasoned attorneys who possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in all areas of business and corporate reorganizations, bankruptcy law and litigation, commercial litigation and workouts and who leverage that experience to develop and implement practical solutions.
Fox Rothschild’s intellectual property team is a full-service group offering clients a comprehensive approach to leveraging and maximizing their intellectual capital. We provide representation related to patents, trademarks, copyrights, licensing and litigation. We also perform due diligence reviews in connection with corporate transactions involving IP rights and conduct IP audits to assess risk and identify opportunities to maximize intellectual capital. With more than 70 members on our IP team —more than half of whom are registered patent attorneys and more than a dozen who possess advanced degrees in specific technical disciplines — our clients know that no matter what their IP issue, we have the know-how and experience to handle the matter efficiently and effectively. Our team also includes attorneys with extensive business experience in a variety of industries, including life sciences, pharmaceuticals, engineering, biotechnology, technology, medical devices, communications, entertainment, fashion and more, offering clients diverse perspectives and informed strategies for the development and management of intellectual property.
Labor and Employment
From labor negotiations to wage-and-hour issues and from immigration matters to policy development, workplace management is increasingly complex. Our labor and employment team —comprised of more than 75 attorneys — provides pragmatic, preventive, proactive and, when necessary, aggressive solutions to resolve and mitigate disputes and costly litigation. Fox is able to provide the strategic legal representation — from handbooks compliant with state and federal regulations to class-action employment litigation — that employers need to secure effective and efficient business outcomes.
With more than 200 trial attorneys, Fox offers a battle-tested team to help you navigate a suit from the moment it lands at your doorstep. Our goal is to resolve disputes in the most cost-effective and expeditious way. Through preventive counseling and risk assessments, we strive to help clients avoid litigation in the first place. When litigation is unavoidable, we customize a strategy tailored to your goals, both long and short term, and work side-by-side with you through the process. We aggressively advocate for clients in both trial and appellate matters in state and federal courts throughout the country as well as in administrative proceedings. We also recognize litigation is costly, both in terms of dollars spent and publicity gained, and sometimes a matter is best resolved to the benefit of all parties through arbitration or another form of alternative dispute resolution.
Our team of real estate professionals helps clients maximize their opportunities, whether in portfolio transactions or deals involving a single property. We are well-versed in key areas, such as acquisitions, sales, leasing, financing, zoning, land use, construction, tax appeals and condemnation. Our attorneys bring a multifaceted perspective to each real estate opportunity and help to identify and address risks. With years of experience navigating the real estate market in both upswings and downturns, we are skilled at considering a client’s motivation and objectives to advise on the best course. We assist owners, developers, investors, lenders, real estate professionals, design professionals, landlords, tenants, financial institutions, syndicators, insurance companies and many other clients with their real estate needs. Our attorneys also maintain key connections at the federal and state level with established and emerging players in the real estate market.
Taxation and Wealth Planning
Fox Rothschild’s tax attorneys provide a comprehensive array of planning and counseling services to help clients navigate the maze of tax laws governing businesses and individuals. We continually assess developments that arise from the evolving landscape of federal and state income tax laws, the passage of new legislation, administrative announcements, regulations and case law, and we integrate those updates into our evaluations of various business and personal situations. Our attorneys frequently work side-by-side with other attorneys in the firm versed in corporate, securities, employment, litigation, real estate, bankruptcy and family law to form multidisciplinary teams that focus on providing tax-efficient alternatives to clients. Our specific tax services cover a range of areas, including business and international taxation, employee benefits and compensation planning, family business and succession planning, federal estate and gift tax planning, nonprofit organizations, probate and trust law litigation, tax controversy and litigation, and trust and estate law and administration.
