Dilworth Paxson’s Stephen J. Harmelin and Joseph H. Jacovini to be Honored by Philadelphia Bar Association
October 26, 2016 (Philadelphia, PA) – Dilworth Paxson partners Stephen J. Harmelin and Joseph H. Jacovini will be recognized by the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Business Law Section as Giants of the Business Bar on Thursday, November 3, 2016. The event is part of a series of Philadelphia Bar Association programs in which the Business Law Section recognizes elite attorneys who have made a significant impact on the practice of business law in Philadelphia and beyond, and provides an opportunity for both young and experienced lawyers to learn from them.
Mr. Harmelin and Mr. Jacovini each has over 50 years of experience in the legal profession. Their exceptional legal minds and stellar records of advocacy have made them trusted counselors to their clients. They have put service to their community at the forefront of their professional lives and each serves on the boards of numerous institutions and charitable organizations, including The Barnes Foundation, Drexel University, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the National Constitution Center, among others.
“To call Steve and Joe ‘giants’ of the bar is almost an understatement,” says Ajay Raju, Chairman and CEO of the Firm. “As practitioners, as law firm leaders, and perhaps most importantly, as devoted, tireless stewards of our city and region, these two gentlemen embody our profession at its very best.”
The event celebrating these Giants of the Business Bar will take place at 5:30 PM on Thursday, November 3 at Bank and Bourbon in the Loews Philadelphia Hotel at 1200 Market Street. Light refreshments and cocktails will be provided. While there is no cost to attend, registration in advance is required.
