Hon. Arlin M. Adams, counsel in the Firm’s Philadelphia office, was featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer on January 8, 2012 regarding his recent announcement to retire from law and Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP. The article, “Respected Judge, Litigator Retires From the Fray,” detailed Judge Adams’ 65-year career as a federal appeals court judge and litigator in which he was able to interact closely with presidents and foreign leaders and be at the center of important events in Philadelphia and the surrounding area.

Before becoming counsel to the Firm, Judge Adams served as a U.S. Court of Appeals judge from 1969 to 1987. His professional and civic leadership has been evident throughout the length of his distinguished career, and in 2001, Susquehanna University created the Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society at Susquehanna to honor his many achievements. The University of Pennsylvania Law School and the Annenberg Foundation established the Arlin M. Adams Professorship on Constitutional Law in his honor in 2005.
