Fox Rothschild To Ring in the New Year with Expansion in Northern California

December 20, 2013 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2014, it is merging with MBV Law LLP.

This move adds seven attorneys to the Fox roster and bolsters its footprint in Northern California.

“The Bay Area is a key region where we wanted to expand our footprint to better serve our clients. We’re thrilled to be kicking off 2014 with this expansion and with a team of attorneys who share our entrepreneurial approach to providing excellent client service,” said Firmwide Managing Partner Mark L. Silow.

“MBV broadens our practice in Northern California to include a wider scope of corporate and litigation capabilities,” continued Silow.

Representing clients in an array of corporate, employment, real estate, intellectual property and commercial litigation matters, MBV Law brings six partners and one associate to Fox. Although MBV maintains a general practice, the firm has a strong emphasis on representing architects, engineers and other design professionals, especially in the areas of ownership transition planning and mergers and acquisitions.

Partners joining Fox are: Bill Mandel, Laura Terry Howard, L. Peter Ryan, Dwight C. Donovan and Syvia L. Magid. Jack C. Praetzellis joins as an associate.

“We are excited about joining a growing, dynamic firm such as Fox Rothschild,” said Mandel, MBV’s senior partner. “Fox shares the same commitment to excellence and client service that we instilled at MBV.”

After a transition period, the attorneys and staff of MBV will move to Fox’s San Francisco office located at 235 Pine Street.
