Arent Fox Deemed TCM’s 2007 Service Provider of the Year
WASHINGTON —May 3, 2007— Last night, the Tech Council of Maryland/MdBio (TCM) recognized Arent Fox LLP as Service Provider of the Year during its Annual Tech Awards Celebration.
The Service Provider of the Year award honors the business, agency, firm or organization that has given outstanding customer and service support to the technology community. The two other finalists were Mantaro Networks, Inc., and Zentech Manufacturing, Inc.
Arent Fox was recognized for the efforts of John Dwyer, a counsel at the firm, and others to facilitate passage of a stem cell research bill by the Maryland legislature. The bill, which will result in at least $25 million being provided by the state to encourage basic stem cell research, is critical to the biotech community.
Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) presented the award to Dwyer, who accepted on behalf of the firm, at TCM’s annual dinner. TCM also presented awards to the Executive of the Year, High Technology Firm of the Year, Biotechnology Firm of the Year and Government Contracting Firm of the Year.
