Fox Rothschild LLP is a well-established, growing law firm that enjoys an excellent reputation within the legal profession and business community. We have 29 offices firm-wide. We have a varied and dynamic practice, and our clients are local, national and international businesses of all sizes. The Firm's client base is unusually broad, and includes many entrepreneurs and venture capitalists involved in emerging enterprises, as well as long-existing family-owned businesses.
ASSOCIATE DEVELOPMENT: New associates have immediate client contact, and our practice encourages associates to challenge themselves and grow their skills with open access to attorneys at all levels. We seek attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their academic, professional and personal pursuits, and who show promise for practicing law with the highest standards of professional competence and integrity. Academic excellence, resourcefulness and initiative are the qualities we look for when evaluating prospective members of the Firm. We offer associates responsibility in assignments at an early stage in their careers, and pride ourselves on staffing matters with relatively small teams of attorneys, giving each attorney major responsibility for the matter.
WORK/LIFE BALANCE: Fox takes a holistic approach to the promotion of employee health and well-being. Through our award-winning Fox Fit & Well Program, we offer a comprehensive suite of tools and programs to enable wellness on multiple fronts: physical, social, emotional, financial, intellectual, occupational, environmental and spiritual. Additionally, to help ensure a smooth transition back to work after a pregnancy disability and/or parental leave, the Firm has established a Post Leave of Absence Ramp-Up Program for Attorneys. This allows attorneys to return to work gradually after a Firm-approved pregnancy/parental leave of absence through a reduced billable hours expectation for a limited period with no reduction in annualized salary because of the modified expectation. To facilitate this new program, we have designated Leave Liaisons who will support transitions and work with those taking leaves, their assigning partners, and the relevant office/department management, to oversee the process.
DIVERSITY: As a national law firm with offices and employees from coast to coast, all of our lawyers and business service professionals are valued team members who contribute not only to Fox’s success but also to the success of the communities where we live and work. We continually strive to integrate DE&I at all levels of firm operations and to embed it in our culture. Kimberly Gatling, our Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, leads the firm’s DE&I efforts. For four consecutive years, we scored 100% on the Corporate Equality Index, demonstrating our commitment to LGBTQ+ equality in the workplace. We have obtained Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule 5.0 Certification and are committed to Mansfield 6.0. In October 2022, we launched a Sponsorship Program for historically underrepresented associates. We also continued our 1L Diversity Fellowship Program for the Summer of 2023. The 1L Diversity Fellowship Program (“Fox Fellowship”) is awarded based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, strong interpersonal skills, entrepreneurial ambition and a commitment to diversity and inclusion efforts in the legal community. Fox is committed to continuing to develop strategies to enhance our recruitment, retention, promotion and growth of attorneys and staff professionals irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, religion, age, sexual orientation, ability status, veteran status, or any other identity or intersecting identities.
DEPARTMENT HIGHLIGHTS: Our firm is organized into thirteen major specialties: Corporate, Education Law, Entertainment & Sports Law, Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation, Environmental, Family Law, Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy, Gaming, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Litigation, Real Estate, and Taxation & Wealth Planning. Over 70+ interdepartmental groups focus on specialized practice areas. Some of these include Cannabis Law, Health Law, Condominium Law, Creditors' Rights, Condemnation Law, Labor Litigation, Professional Liability Defense, Maritime Law, Domestic Relations, Public Utility Law, Personal Injury, Administrative Law, ERISA, Immigration, Construction Law, Automotive, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Law, Media, Defamation and Privacy Law, White Collar Criminal Defense, Fashion Law and Family Business.
SUMMER PROGRAM: Our Summer Program is the foundation of our recruiting efforts. Each summer we invite a diverse group of bright, highly motivated law students to experience the practice of law at Fox Rothschild LLP. Since the majority of our entry-level lawyers come from the pool of second-year summer associates who complete our program, we consider the Summer Program the most important component of the recruiting process. We expect to hire as many summer associates for regular associate positions as practical, based on a comprehensive evaluation of each participant in the program.
