July 18, 2017 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Brian McGinnis, who was recognized as an emerging leader in the law as part of Billy Penn’s prestigious Who’s Next in Law list.

The feature highlights 16 of Philadelphia’s most dynamic ADAs, defenders, litigators and advocates who are changing the legal community in Philadelphia.

McGinnis was noted both for his advocacy within Fox and in the community.  In 2016, he was appointed to the Democratic National Committee's LGBT Advisory Board, which complements the party's existing national organizing structure with a body of LGBT Democrats from all 50 states allowing "two-way conversations" with LGBT communities across the country, as well as mobilizing community members on behalf of LGBT-friendly candidates and policy issues at all levels.

McGinnis also serves on the legislative committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association, which advises the board of trustees in taking positions on proposed legislation in New Jersey.

At Fox, McGinnis advises businesses on a wide range of employment law issues, including the adoption of policies and practices designed to avoid lawsuits and how to respond when the inevitable suit is filed. His litigation experience includes representing employers in federal court and administrative agency proceedings.

McGinnis received his J.D. magna cum laude from Rutgers University School of Law and his B.A. cum laude from the University of Delaware.
