Mark Silow and John Haggerty Recognized as Distinguished Leaders by The Legal Intelligencer

May 1, 2017 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Mark L. Silow and John J. Haggerty, who were featured by The Legal Intelligencer as 2017 Distinguished Leaders.

The inaugural award, presented by the oldest law journal in the United States, lauds Pennsylvania-based lawyers who achieved impressive results in the past year and demonstrated clear leadership skills that helped them achieve those results.

Silow, who recently concluded 12 years as Fox’s firmwide managing partner, is credited with masterfully executing a plan for strategic growth that tripled the firm to nearly 800 lawyers, transforming it from a Philadelphia-based regional firm into a national powerhouse with 22 offices.

Now serving as chair of the firm, Silow will continue to lead the firm through mergers and lateral additions to stay ahead of clients’ constantly changing needs.

Haggerty serves as co-chair of the firm’s nationwide Litigation Department. He has worked with tennis superstar and five-time Grand Slam Champion Maria Sharapova for more than a decade, and represented her in her recent anti-doping proceedings. Through Haggerty’s determined representation, Sharapova received a substantially reduced penalty from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and just returned to the women’s tennis tour. Haggerty also represents major corporations in complex commercial, insurance, class action, product liability and mass tort litigation matters in state and federal courts throughout the country.

Silow and Haggerty will be honored at an awards dinner at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia on June 22.
