Mark L. Silow was featured in the Bloomberg BNA article, “Fox Rothschild To Merge in the Midwest.” Full text can be found in the December 14, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Fox Rothschild has announced the acquisition of the Minneapolis-based law firm of Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly LLP. The merger, which will go into effect on January 4, 2016, will raise the number of attorneys practicing at Fox to more than 700.

“We’ve had our eye on Minneapolis for a number of years,” said Mark Silow, firmwide managing partner of Fox Rothschild. “We’ve pursued other opportunities before. This just instantly seemed to make sense to all parties.”

Silow said Minneapolis’s mix of industrial, retail, medical and emerging tech companies made it an attractive market. With similar financial metrics, including its billing rate structure and revenue per lawyer and a matching client profiles, Oppenheimer was a sensible merger partner.
