Fox Rothschild Announces Practice Leadership AppointmentsFox Rothschild announced that Douglas J. Zeltt was named co-chair of the firm’s corporate department, and Matthew S. Adams co-chair of the white-collar compliance and defense practice group. Zeltt joins Jeffery H. Nicholas in piloting the nationwide corporate team in the Princeton office, and Adams will lead the white-collar group with Charles A. De Monaco in the Morristown office.
Since 1992, Zeltt has served as outside general counsel and a trusted adviser to privately held businesses, professional practices, entrepreneurs, and high-net worth individuals and families. He focuses on mergers and acquisitions, joint-venture transactions, commercial financing transactions, business succession planning and strategic counseling. He is the former managing partner of Fox’s Princeton office and a former member of the firm’s executive committee.
Adams is a criminal and civil trial lawyer with an active litigation practice in federal and state courts, as well as before administrative agencies, regulatory bodies and in alternate dispute resolution forums throughout the U.S. He counsels individuals and entities facing criminal charges, regulatory and enforcement actions, and law enforcement and regulatory investigations. He strategically builds and defends cases through digital forensics and other nontraditional forms of evidence, including where the use of such evidence presents issues of first impression, according to the firm.
“Our chairs play a pivotal role in helping us plan and execute the firm’s overall strategy,” said Fox firmwide managing partner Mark L. Morris. “As our Corporate and White-Collar groups continue to grow nationally, we are confident that Doug and Matt, together with Jeff and Chuck, will build upon the foundations in place and work to elevate and enhance the firm’s services.”
