Fox Rothschild Re-Elects Mark Silow as Firmwide Managing Partner and Phillip Griffin and Abraham Reich as Firm Co-ChairsNovember 20, 2013 – Press Releases
Having led the firm through a period of unprecedented growth, Fox Rothschild leaders Mark L. Silow, Phillip E. Griffin and Abraham C. Reich have been re-elected to their respective positions.
Elected by the partnership for three-year terms effective April 1, 2014, Griffin and Reich will remain co-chairs of the firm, and Silow will continue in his role as firmwide managing partner.
During the challenging economy of the past several years, Fox has enjoyed significant expansion and financial success under the leadership of Griffin, Reich and Silow. In just three years, the firm grew from 475 lawyers and 15 offices in 2010 to its current roster of nearly 600 attorneys in 19 offices. Fox’s market expansion has included new offices in Washington, DC; Denver, CO; Morristown, NJ; and Coral Gables, FL.
“It is an exciting time for the firm,” said Silow. “We have been, and remain dedicated to, making strategic expansions that align with our goals and our clients’ needs, and we anticipate continued growth in the coming years to meet and exceed those objectives.”
“It is my honor and privilege to be re-elected and to continue overseeing the firm’s operations. I look forward to working with Phil and Abe as we help the firm maintain its strong level of client service and commitment,” he continued.
In the last several years, Fox has become a leader on many industry fronts. Having established a reputation as an innovator in the profession when The National Law Journal named Fox #1 worldwide in blogging, the firm has been honored by Information Week 500 for two consecutive years for its creative technology solutions. Recently, Fox ventured into the app realm, creating an iPhone app for the firm’s New Jersey family law practice. Last year, Fox was named the second most diverse law firm in California, and it recently launched a firmwide associate business development curriculum. The firm has also won Healthy Workplace Awards in both its Philadelphia and Pittsburgh offices, a direct result of its progressive “Fox Fit and Well” employee wellness program.
Reich, a former Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association who is ranked in both Chambers USA and Benchmark Litigation, handles a wide array of business litigation matters, 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.
Griffin, named "Princeton Area Health Care Lawyer of the Year," by Best Lawyers, practices primarily in the areas of tax, business, financial and estate planning; health care law; mergers and acquisitions; sales and purchases of businesses; and matters relating to professional service practices and closely held businesses.
Silow is a tax lawyer and former chair of the firm’s Tax Department who now devotes a significant portion of his time to firm management.
