Fox Rothschild’s Exton Office Aids in Hurricane Sandy Relief EffortsDecember 4, 2012 – Press Releases
To assist those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, attorneys and staff in Fox Rothschild’s Exton office have engaged in multiple fundraising activities.
In addition to the donations made by the firm and its 17 offices nationwide, Fox’s office in Exton hosted a blood drive with the American Red Cross and collected monetary contributions as well as household and personal items for hurricane victims in New York. Attorneys and staff donated nearly $700 to The American Red Cross, and the household items collected were given to a shelter on Staten Island housing those affected by the storm.
Firm-wide, Fox Rothschild has contributed to a variety of organizations providing recovery assistance to affected individuals and businesses in New York and New Jersey. Staff members in all locations have been encouraged to make personal contributions to relief organizations. The firm has also extended insurance-related assistance to Fox employees grappling with losses suffered in the storm.
Fox also established a Disaster Recovery Group — www.foxrothschild.com/hurricanesandyrecovery — to assist clients and contacts in navigating the labyrinth of resources, asset protection best practices and loss mitigation strategies. The interdisciplinary team offers guidance in the areas of insurance, tax, labor and employment, construction, government contracts and litigation.
While maintaining a national presence, Fox Rothschild prides itself in a strong sense of community throughout its network of offices. In addition to attorneys and staff devoting time and resources to organizations throughout the year, the firm provides substantial financial support annually to more than 500 service providers that help better lives, enhance communities and enrich the overall quality of life locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The firm also has a broad-based pro bono program that includes legal services at no cost for individuals who need assistance as well as services to various religious organizations, community groups, nonprofit associations, social welfare and human resources organizations.
