Katz Graduate School of Business; Ann Dugan, founder of the Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence; Alan Miciak, dean of the Palumbo and Donahue School of Business at Duquesne University and John Moskal, managing director for Marsh USA.

In his remarks at the event, Marinstein said: “We chose to sponsor the awards because we work closely with CEOs and their in-house counsel to help them move forward from a position of strength. Since entering the Pittsburgh market nine years ago to complete our statewide footprint, Fox Rothschild has followed that model and built its business here steadily.

“We are managed conservatively and have been fortunate to weather the storm of the economic downturn,” Marinstein said. “Firmwide, we have grown to more than 500 lawyers in 16 cities coast to coast. Clients appreciate our home town focus and that we treat their issues and their businesses as if they are our own. And that we do so on a practical and cost-effective basis.

“Today, Pittsburgh businesses come to us for everything from major corporate transactions and counseling … and cutting edge immigration …. to bet the company commercial litigation. They seek our guidance because we understand their issues, their priorities, and the way they think.”
