Historically, Dilworth Paxson is one of the most prestigious law firms in the Philadelphia region. Looking to the future, it is destined to become one of the most innovative.
Founded in Philadelphia in 1933, the Firm conducts a broad and diverse regional and national practice representing a wide variety of clients ranging from individuals and non-profit organizations, to for-profit businesses,... including Fortune 500 companies. Dilworth acts as special counsel to various municipal and governmental authorities and entities, as well as utilities and other institutions which are an important part of life in the communities served by the Firm.
Our attorneys bring in-depth experience in each of the Firm’s practice areas, and our moderate size enables us to carry out engagements with great focus and efficiency. We understand that each matter, transaction, and negotiation must reflect a company’s mission and stand up to public scrutiny.
Overall, our goal is to provide high-quality, results-oriented, cost-effective legal services for all of our clients.
Structurally, the Firm is organized into two main departments – Corporate & Business and Litigation – and is managed by an Executive Committee comprised of ten senior Dilworth partners and executives. In early 2014, Dilworth hired its first Executive Chairman/CEO, Ajay Raju, and long-time senior partners transitioned into new roles: Lawrence G. McMichael became Chairman, Practice Groups; Joseph H. Jacovini and Stephen J. Harmelin became Chairman of the Executive Committee and Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee, respectively.
Presently, our practice areas include the following:
• Banking & Financial Services
• Bankruptcy & Insolvency
• Corporate and Business
• Corporate Investigations/White Collar
• Employee Benefits
• Government Affairs
• Health Care
• Intellectual Property
• Labor & Employment
• Mergers & Acquisitions
• Philanthropic & Non-profit
• Public Finance
• Real Estate
• Trusts & Estates
Dilworth has a rich history of success in the Mid-Atlantic region, and with a focus on innovation, is committed to creating an exciting and productive future for the Firm and its clients. One example of this commitment: Dilworth is unique among law firms in its decision to form an external advisory board – this board is made up of prominent leaders.
With the advisory board’s support, Dilworth has created The Exchange, a platform (and eventually, a physical space) that brings investors together to create access to capital for area start-ups. In addition, Dilworth has created its own fund which, in essence, will become a separate captive company that is unrelated to the legal business.
Dilworth maintains a strong and unique tradition of public service and civic involvement and, as a result, many former and present members of the Firm hold a wide variety of positions at the federal, state and local levels of government and on the boards of charitable and civic institutions. Public service and civic commitment are personified by the Firm’s founding partner, Richardson Dilworth, who served as Mayor of the City of Philadelphia, District Attorney and School Board President. Mayor Dilworth pioneered the urban redevelopment program that succeeded in making Philadelphia one of the most livable and distinguished cities in the country. Dilworth’s commitment to public service has been carried on by many others, including:
• William T. Coleman, Jr., who, despite having a Harvard law degree and completing a clerkship for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, was not offered a job at a major Philadelphia law firm until Dilworth Paxson hired him in 1952. He went on to co-write the briefs for the momentous U.S. Supreme Court decision, Brown v. Board of Education, and to serve as United States Secretary of Transportation under President Gerald Ford.
• Dolores Sloviter, former Chief Judge of the Third Circuit, who, at Dilworth, became one of the first women partners in a large Philadelphia firm
• Robert P. Casey, who left the firm in 1987 to serve two terms as Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
• Rob Andrews, who served as a Member of the United States House of Representatives for nearly 24 years before joining the Firm in March of 2014 to lead its Government Affairs Practice
The public and civic service Dilworth maintains underscores the commitment that Dilworth extends to ensuring that the appropriate policies and procedures are followed and that our communities throughout the Philadelphia region and beyond are free to build a civically and economically sound future for generations to come.
