Fox Rothschild was featured in the Law360 article, "Pa. Powerhouses Dominate in Competitive Regional Market." Full text can be found in the June 13, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is noted below.

Fox Rothschild has been named to Law360’s “Pennsylvania Powerhouses,” a listing of firms that have a sizeable presence in the state and significant regional accomplishments in the past two years.

“In Philadelphia — just the depth of the profession — It's pretty extraordinary, both the number of quality of lawyers and quality law firms,” said Mark Silow, firmwide managing partner of Fox Rothschild. “We've got everything from the small boutiques to the home offices of the international law firms. It's a lawyers' town, so there's a lot of really good lawyers and really good law firms.”

The Philadelphia legal market has remained stable in recent years, said Silow, leading to lawyers being happy to stay put.

“The firms are all doing well. They seem to have avoided some of the problems that other large firms around the country have suffered. There hasn't been a lot of movement among firms,” he said.

Many firms based in Philadelphia also have offices in the city’s suburbs, allowing them to tap into thriving health care and tech sectors.

Fox Rothschild, with offices in Blue Bell, Exton and Warrington, has more suburban Philadelphia locations than any of the other firms listed.

“Across southeastern Pennsylvania, high tech and health care have been very dynamic,” Silow said.
