Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that Marilou E. Watson has been selected to receive the 2015 Multicultural Leadership Award by the National Diversity Council.

This annual award honors people of color who have made a difference through their achievements and exemplify the ability to excel in their field.

A partner in the firm\u2019s Intellectual Property Department and co-chair of Fox\u2019s Life Sciences Practice, Watson previously served as co-chair of the firm's Diversity Committee, where she assisted in spearheading initiatives that promoted firmwide diversity and inclusiveness.
