Philadelphia partner Larry Fox will be honored this spring with The Legal Intelligencer’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Larry, a partner of the firm since 1976 and former managing partner, focuses on the counseling of law firms on professional responsibility concerns, providing advice in capital habeas proceedings and handling complex litigation. Among his many professional and community service activities, Larry was a member of the ABA Commission on the Evaluation of the Rules of Professional Conduct (Ethics 2000), Chair of the ABA Post-Conviction Death Penalty Representation Project (1996-2003), chair of the ABA Litigation Section and chair of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility. He has taught classes at Cornell, Penn and Harvard and is currently the Crawford Lecturer at Yale Law School. To date, Larry has published six books, written hundreds of articles, and presented hundreds of CLE programs.

To celebrate its 170th year and to honor the history of the legal profession in Pennsylvania, the publication identified some of the most important members of the legal community—a group of noteworthy individuals who have helped to shape the law in Pennsylvania.

The Legal consulted trusted members of the community for their recommendations of lawyers who have made distinct impact on the legal profession in the state who are still practicing law.

The publication says the lawyers selected “represent the best the Pennsylvania legal community has to offer. They have collectively moved forward the legal profession in the state, helped foster the legal education of younger attorneys and stood as examples of some of the best virtues of Pennsylvania attorneys.”

Information about each award recipient will be included in the special anniversary magazine The Legal will publish later this spring and they will all be honored at a celebratory dinner on June 27.
