The combined firm will have over 700 lawyers, of which 82 come from the Upper Midwest offices of Oppenheimer. Fox Rothschild has been expanding over the last 18 months, adding a team of lawyers in Chicago in April and merging with a firm in Dallas in October last year.
Strategic growth plan
Fox Rothschild managing partner Miark Silow said: 'Establishing a strong presence in the Upper Midwest is an important component in Fox’s overall strategic growth plan. The Oppenheimer firm offers us a chance to enter this important market in a robust way, adding an established group of attorneys with strong client relationships and deep roots in the community.' The combined firm will be represented in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and the District of Columbia.
