Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to welcome Chipo M. Jolibois to the firm’s Princeton office as an associate in the Intellectual Property Department.
Jolibois joins Fox through the OnRamp Fellowship, a program that matches women lawyers reentering the legal profession with firms that offer the resources they need to continue a successful career in law. She is the second woman to join Fox through the program, which works with 29 law firms throughout the country.
Fox aims to ensure that women attorneys have the support they need. As an OnRamp Fellow, Jolibois has access to the mentorship of Fox partners and leadership as well as unlimited continuing legal education services through the PLI Institute and training in negotiations, leadership, project management and business development.
A key component in the firm’s longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion, Fox’s Women’s Initiative works to promote women attorneys within the firm by focusing on the recruitment, retention and advancement of qualified women attorneys.
“I’m thrilled to be selected as an OnRamp Fellow and to have the opportunity to work with a team that values creativity, drive and diversity,” said Jolibois. “I look forward to contributing my strengths and insight while I revitalize my practice and make new connections in the legal community.”
The efforts of the firm and its Women’s Initiative have been recognized six times by the sought-after Best Law Firms for Women ranking, which highlights firms that lead the industry in initiatives for women’s business development and career advancement by offering flexible work arrangements and generous paid parental leave, among other important benefits.
With a focus on patent and intellectual property law, Jolibois gained significant experience in both corporate and law firm settings. She operated her own firm and later was an attorney at a mid-sized regional law firm. Before that, she was a process engineer and patent attorney at Rohm and Haas Company (now Dow Chemical). She earned her B.S. in chemical engineering from Drexel University and her J.D. from Temple University.
