Abraham C. Reich of Fox Rothschild Receives Wachovia Fidelity AwardDecember 5, 2007
Philadelphia, PA – Abraham C. Reich, co-chair of Fox Rothschild LLP, received the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Wachovia Fidelity Award. The award was presented during the Association’s annual luncheon meeting on December 4, 2007.
The Wachovia Fidelity Award is presented annually to individuals who have improved the administration of justice - particularly in Philadelphia - and have exhibited faithfulness to the legal profession.
“It’s a wonderful feeling to be recognized by the Philadelphia Bar Association,” said Reich, who served as the Association’s Chancellor in 1995. “I’m proud to have been - and to continue to be - a strong and influential part of improving the legal profession in the Philadelphia community.”
Reich, who has been in practice since 1974 and is currently co-chair of the firm, focuses his practice on all aspects of business litigation, including antitrust, securities, trade secrets, intellectual property matters, legal ethics and professional responsibility, alternative dispute resolution, and other corporate matters. He also represents lawyers and serves as an expert witness in legal ethics, professional responsibility, and law firm matters.
Active in the legal community, Reich is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and of the House of Delegates of both the American Bar Association and Pennsylvania Bar Association. Also active in the Philadelphia community, Reich is a member of the board of directors of Jenkins Law Library and the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board.
The criteria for the Wachovia Fidelity Award includes:
- significant accomplishments in improving the administration of justice (preferably in Philadelphia)
- the absence of prior recognition for this work by the Philadelphia Bar Association
- distinguished service consistently rendered over a considerable period of time or a single outstanding achievement in a particular year
- the accomplishment must arise from voluntary activities rather than for services rendered as a paid professional
- it is preferred that the recipient be a member of the Philadelphia Bar Association not now in public office or directly involved with the court operations or any other public service activity.
