The American Bar Association’s Center for Professional Responsibility has named Lawrence J. Fox, a Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP partner, as the 2007 recipient of its Michael Franck Professional Responsibility Award.

In announcing that Fox would receive the award, Donald. B. Hilliker, chair of the center’s coordinating committee, said it honors “individuals whose career commitments in areas such as legal ethics, disciplinary enforcement and lawyer professionalism demonstrate the best accomplishments of lawyers.” The award will be presented May 31 at the ABA’s annual National Conference on Professional Responsibility to be held in Chicago.

"Larry Fox epitomizes the very best of our profession. He has made contributions to legal ethics as a prolific author, speaker, practitioner and professor at the very highest levels. I can think of no one more deserving of the Michael Franck Award," said Hilliker.

“I believe this award is a reflection of the special place legal ethics plays at Drinker Biddle & Reath. I am humbled to join such a distinguished group of dedicated lawyers,” said Fox.

Fox joins Lewis H. Van Dusen, Jr., the 1997 Franck Award recipient, as the second Drinker Biddle honoree. In fact, Fox and Van Dusen are two of only three Franck Award recipients from private practice and they exemplify the firm’s commitment to upholding and enhancing the organized bar’s ethical standards. The award was first presented in 1995 to the Rev. Robert F. Drinan.

“We are extremely proud of Larry’s leadership and accomplishments in the area of professional responsibility and legal ethics,” said Alfred W. Putnam, Jr., Chairman of Drinker Biddle. “Larry’s entire career serves as an example of how to succeed while upholding the highest ethical standards of our honorable profession.”

In recognizing Fox’s selection, the Honorable Norma L. Shapiro, of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, observed that Fox’s “passion for professionalism has uplifted the aspirations and conduct of the legal community. With insight, humor, enormous energy and unclouded vision, he is the constant conscience of the practicing bar.”

Among his many professional accomplishments, Fox was instrumental in the creation of the ABA Commission on the Evaluation of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Ethics 2000), on which he also served. The group’s work has served to advance the role of professional responsibility law in the administration of justice, noted Jeanne P. Gray, director of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility.

Fox has also served as chair of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and the planning committee for the annual ABA National Conference on Professional Responsibility. In other ABA roles, he served as chair of the ABA Section of Litigation, Section Officers Conference and Post-Conviction Death Penalty Representation Project. He was a 2005 recipient of the ABA Pro Bono Publico Award. At the ABA’s 2006 annual meeting in Hawaii, Fox addressed the House of Delegates on the importance of maintaining judicial independence.

His appearances across the country include participating in numerous continuing legal education programs and lectures or classes at more than 35 law schools. He currently teaches the course on legal ethics at Harvard Law School, where he serves as a visiting lecturer. He has appeared on television programs, including ABC News’ Nightline, CNN’s Crossfire, Talk Back Live and Burden of Proof, NBC’s The Today Show and MSNBC’s The Most, discussing a wide range of professional responsibility issues. Internationally, he has visited Argentina, Italy and mainland China as a specialist and speaker on the role and rights of lawyers.

Fox is the author of Legal Tender: A Lawyers’ Guide to Professional Dilemmas and co-author of Traversing the Ethical Minefield: Problems, Law, and Professional

Responsibility; Red Flags: A Lawyer’s Handbook on Legal Ethics; and Your Lawyer: A User’s Guide with Professor Susan R. Martyn. In addition, he has written countless articles that have appeared in national law reviews, professional publications, and state and local bar journals. In a joint letter of recommendation for the Franck Award, Professor Martyn and Los Angeles lawyer Diane Karpman said, “We find it difficult to imagine another person who has generated so much interest in professional responsibility or who has influenced so many.”

Fox became a partner at Drinker Biddle in 1976, and focuses his practice on corporate and securities litigation, as well as advising corporations and private law partnerships on ethics issues and disputes. He has twice served on the firm’s board of managing partners and has chaired the firm’s Professional Responsibility Committee. He received his B.A. (1965) and J.D. (1968) from the University of Pennsylvania, joining Pennsylvania’s bar in 1968 and New York’s in 1970.

Thomas E. Bartrum, a nationally recognized authority on health care regulatory issues, has joined Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP as a partner. In addition to his focus on the health care regulatory environment, Bartrum, who moved to Drinker Biddle’s Washington, D.C., office from Waller Landsden Dortch & Davis LLP in Nashville, Tenn., will provide counsel to health care clients on joint ventures and other transactions.

“We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality of service to clients,” said Alfred W. Putnam, Jr., chairman of Drinker Biddle. “Thomas Bartrum brings our clients across the country the type of significant experience in the regulatory landscape that they need to succeed in a dynamic health care industry.”

Drinker Biddle’s health law practice group serves a wide variety of clients, including providers, health care vendors, health professional associations, providersponsored managed care organizations, group purchasing organizations and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

“I’m honored to join one of the premier groups of health care lawyers in the nation,” said Bartrum. “In addition to the depth and breadth of experience offered across a wide spectrum of issues, our location in Washington puts us on the front lines of the ever-changing regulatory environment so that we can bring our clients the type of insight and foresight they require.”

In the regulatory arena, Bartrum’s practice includes counsel to clients on structuring financial arrangements and transactions to comply with the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark laws in addition to advice on Medicare payment matters, licensure and certification issues, joint ventures, compliance, self-reporting and response to government fraud and abuse investigations including Medicare and Medicaid overpayment issues, commercial overpayment issues, and whistle-blower actions.

Over the last several years, Bartrum also has developed particular experience in structuring hospital-physician joint ventures, especially radiology and imaging joint ventures, having handled matters relating to the establishment of free-standing ancillary service providers, under-arrangement and provider-based joint ventures, shared ancillary and block lease transactions, restructuring existing arrangements, and advising on compliance issues associated with such ventures. He has written extensively on the issues of outpatient imaging, hospital-physician joint ventures and Stark law compliance, including the American Health Lawyer Association’s Expert Series on “Diagnostic Imaging Centers: Legal and Regulatory Concerns,” which is in its second edition and is highly regarded by the health care bar.

Bartrum earned his B.A. cum laude in 1989 from Bellarmine College and his J.D. with distinction in 1993 from the University of Kentucky. He earned an LL.M. in Health Law in 1997 from Loyola University Chicago. Bartrum is also active in several professional groups, including the American Bar Association’s Health Law Section and the Health Care Financial Management Association. He is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association and has been a faculty member for its annual Institute on Medicare and Medicaid Payment Issues, its Physician and Physician Organizations Law Institute, its Fraud and Abuse Compliance Program and its In-House Counsel Program and Annual Meeting.

Other aspects of Drinker Biddle’s health law group include counsel on various aspects of business and finance aspects including antitrust, financing and restructurings in addition to regulatory affairs involving areas such as Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, HIPAA and tax-exempt organizations. A number of lawyers also focus on the critical aspects of provider operations, including clinical research, life sciences, long-term and managed care, patient care, and medical staff relations.
