Over more than a century, a talented group of Fox Rothschild attorneys — past and present — has helped create one of the country’s fastest-growing and most dynamic law firms. Our success rests upon a foundation that these lawyers and the lawyers from firms that have joined Fox have built over the decades. We value their contributions to making Fox what it is today. We are planning a mix of virtual and in-person alumni events and initiatives for the remainder of 2023.
