August 11, 2015 – In The News

Joseph E. Collins was featured in the Law360 article, "Ex-DLA Piper Atty To Head Fox Rothschild's Chicago Office." Full text can be found in the August 11, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is noted below.

Fox Rothschild has added a polished partner, Joseph E. Collins, to the litigation department of the firm's Chicago office. Collins will advise clients in class action, insurance, white collar, securities, consumer fraud and complex commercial litigation.

“Our goal was to expediently and strategically add talent in our Chicago office to broaden and deepen the services we provide to clients, including a seasoned, first chair litigator,” Donna B. More, Fox Rothschild’s Chicago office managing partner, said in a statement. “We are delighted to welcome Joe to the team. He is an exceptional talent and adds tremendous depth and experience to our litigation capabilities.”

Fox's strong, national brand along with its stellar reputation seemed to be what caught the eye of Collins, who said he looks forward to establishing a strategic presence in Chicago with Fox.

“Everyone I met with in senior management had been there between 15 and 40-plus years, which spoke volumes to me,” he said. “It's a firm with a history of successful growth. I am truly excited about the opportunity.”

Collins explains his excitement to build a litigation team from the ground up in a new location, which will service clients nationwide but look to narrow in on clients in the Midwest.

“The opportunity to build a litigation team with top Chicago talent played a huge role in my decision,” Collins said. “It's truly rare that such an opportunity presents itself, so I jumped at the chance.”
