Gerard (“Gerry”) Fox is the founder of Gerard Fox Law. He graduated from Georgetown Law School, magna cum laude, and received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Richmond. Mr. Fox has acted as lead trial counsel for clients such as Vivendi, Clear Channel and Dow Chemical. Mr. Fox has also represented a wide variety of high net worth individuals, privately owned companies and high profile entertainers including Dow Chemical, Mode Media, Madonna, James Gandolfini, Anita Baker, Rush Limbaugh, Art Neville, Martin Lawrence, and the Isley Brothers.
Mr. Fox started his career at Covington & Burling, followed by Kaye, Scholer, before forming his own litigation boutique, Fox & Spillane. It was at Fox & Spillane that Mr. Fox achieved and honed his trial skills during the twelve year history of his firm. He is a fierce advocate who brings a passion to each and every matter in order to drive a favorable resolution. His trial practice takes him to courts throughout the country.
Mr. Fox has represented both plaintiffs and defendants and brings to each matter on which he is retained a firm understanding of how “the other side is thinking.” He believes in mapping out a wide range of strategic options at the beginning of a case, fitting the case strategy within the client’s overall set of business goals and budgets, and then getting to a “leverage point” quickly, in order to position the case for a favorable close position for his client. It is his firm belief that preparation, sound judgment, and timely execution are the keys to bringing about a cost effective and winning result in a commercial litigation matter. He works on both an hourly and, when merited, a flat fee basis.
Mr. Fox has handled substantial matters in the following industries: music, television and motion picture, infomercial, media, video game, talent management, family wealth and trusts and estates, investment banking and security, oil and gas, sports, modeling, clothing, radio, real estate, chemical products, securities, banking, restaurants, fashion, and medical device products.
