Abraham C. Reich was featured in The Legal Inquirer article, “World Conference Tops Philadelphia Bar Association's Year.” Full text can be found in the December 24, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is below.

One of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s most significant developments this year was its conference that brought bar leaders from around the world together in Philadelphia.

Fox Rothschild co-chair Abraham C. Reich conducted a panel discussion on ethics alongside state Superior Court Judge Anne E. Lazarus and Alasdair Douglas of the City of London Law Society.

When the floor was opened up for comments, the representative for the Paris Bar Association, Paul Hastings partner Dominique Borde, said, "We do not understand the limits between fundraising and corruption.”

Reich responded that judicial fundraising is an issue of serious concern in Pennsylvania.
