The five founders of Arent Fox—Henry J. Fox, Albert E. Arent, Edwin L. Kahn, Harry M. Plotkin and Earl W. Kintner—brought impressive credentials to the firm. Previous high-level positions and extensive ties to the Washington, DC business community laid the groundwork for Arent Fox’s reputation as one of the city’s premier firms.
The founders also had a commitment to community involvement, pro bono work and diversity. These commitments remain strong today. Founded in 1942 and now with more than 350 attorneys in offices in Washington, DC, New York and Los Angeles, Arent Fox is a dynamic, diversified firm with 31 practice groups and an emphasis on litigation, intellectual property, life sciences and real estate/finance.
