A Record Year for Law Firms’ M&A Activity

January 8, 2016 – In The News

Fox Rothschild LLP was featured in the Philly.com article, “A Record Year for Law Firms' M&A Activity.” Full text can be found in the January 8, 2016, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Mergers and acquisitions with law firms reached a record high in 2015 and Fox Rothschild LLP was among the Philadelphia-based firms that made the decision to branch out before the New Year hit.

Fox Rothschild’s recent acquisition of Minneapolis-based Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly has strengthened its footprint in the upper Midwest and raised the firm’s headcount to over 700 attorneys practicing out of 22 offices coast to coast.

The firm has been growing steadily over recent years, even when the legal market was in a downturn in 2008 and 2009.
