Philadelphia’s Fox Rothschild LLP has big plans for Los Angeles. Having grown from nine to 38 attorneys over the past three years in its Century City office, they have since opened a second office in downtown Los Angeles.

The firm has added family law, corporate and litigation attorneys, but growth has also come with the firms entertainment practice. Entertainment clients came three years ago with the hiring of Darrell D. Miller.

When hired, Miller was the only entertainment attorney in the office, built on what he called a “proof of concept” entertainment practice group, bringing in several attorneys from around the country. Last month the firm officially launched its 11-attorney national entertainment department with Miller as its chairman.

“I needed internally to let the firm know that entertainment was a viable business and it could be a player in the space,” he said. I’m proud to say we’re now much bigger.”

He hopes to grow the department to 20-25 attorneys over the next three to five years, and is looking to hire entertainment dealmakers and sports attorneys.
