Fox Rothschild accelerates expansion of automotive industry practice with addition of boutique firm

Fox Rothschild LLP on Tuesday welcomed automotive boutique Aboyoun Dobbs LLC to the firm. Joining the firm in Morristown are:

  • Joseph Aboyoun, partner;
  • Seth Dobbs, partner;
  • Allan Markus, counsel;
  • Timothy Broking, counsel;
  • Will Salerno, counsel.

“Aboyoun Dobbs has been the go-to firm for automobile dealerships in the tri-state area since its founding in 1989,” Fox Rothschild Chair Mark Morris stated. “Their reputation has grown and expanded beyond the region, and we are thrilled to welcome Joe, Seth and their team to the firm. We have collaborated with Aboyoun Dobbs through referrals in the past, but, together, we will be able to provide clients with a true one-stop shop for their legal needs. That includes transactions and franchise issues, employment disputes, compliance matters, business succession planning, trust and estate administration, ESG and data security concerns.”

As the automotive industry touches many areas of the law, Fox said its nationwide practice offers support with issues related to taxation, labor and employment, environmental matters, intellectual property, litigation, estate planning and real estate.

Aboyoun Dobbs said that, now, as part of a national law firm, it can offer a comprehensive breadth of legal services to its customers through multipractice client service teams.

“As the automotive sector experiences expansion in both scope and complexity, merging with a prominent national law firm was imperative to guarantee our clients receive the full spectrum representation required by today’s automotive landscape. With the dissolving of state and regional boundaries within the automotive industry, it is important our clients have coast-to-coast representation, without limitations to the simplicity or complexity of matters that can be handled. The vast resources this merger brings to our practice makes certain that our clients will continue to receive the personalized attention and prompt responsiveness that has consistently been the hallmark of Aboyoun Dobbs, yet now on a national scale,” remarked Dobbs.
