PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 19 -Fox Rothschild LLP, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2007, announced today that it would merge with Grotta, Glassman & Hoffman, P.C. (GG&H), the largest firm in New Jersey specializing in labor and employment law. This merger adds 53 lawyers to Fox Rothschild's existing team and sets the stage for national growth. To its ten offices in Delaware, Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, Fox Rothschild adds West Coast offices in Las Vegas, NV, Los Angeles, CA, and San Francisco, CA. The combined practice will continue under the name Fox Rothschild LLP.
"Grotta, Glassman & Hoffman has established a leadership role in labor and employment law, representing notable clients, including Aztar, Duane Reade, Trump Casino Resorts, Perry Ellis International, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, Cornell University, Princeton University, Lea & Perrins, ADP, and the Venetian. The firm's depth of talent and comprehensive knowledge, combined with its West Coast presence, make it a perfect fit for Fox Rothschild," said Mark L. Silow, Administrative Partner of Fox Rothschild. "GG&H's joining with us will bolster our own strong labor and employment practice and fit perfectly into our business model, offering clients both breadth and depth in this practice area."
"Fox Rothschild was the perfect firm for us to join," said Theodore M. Eisenberg, Managing Principal of GG&H. "Our strategic goal has been to expand nationally, and this merger accelerates that process. In addition, both of our firms have remarkably similar, collegial cultures, which will make the process of integration virtually seamless."

GG&H counsels and represents clients throughout the U.S. in industries including retail, gaming, hospitality, healthcare, media, and education among others.
The merger with Grotta, Glassman & Hoffman continues a pattern of unprecedented growth for Fox Rothschild. Upon completion of the deal on October 1, 2006, the firm will have added approximately 85 lawyers since August 2005, representing growth of more than 30 percent in the number of attorneys at the firm. Through organic growth and mergers, Fox Rothschild is developing a coast-to-coast network of offices, offering clients a broad portfolio of legal services.
"Our merger with Grotta, Glassman & Hoffman exponentially accelerates our strategic plan for national growth," said Silow. "Excitement at the firm and among our attorneys and staff is at an all-time high."
