Foley & Lardner LLP is pleased to announce that Marcus Sprow has been named managing partner of its Detroit office. Sprow, a member of Foley’s Mechanical & Electromechanical Technologies Practice and Energy and Manufacturing Sectors, also serves as vice-chair of the firm’s national Intellectual Property Department.
Sprow succeeds partner Philip Phillips, who has held the position in Detroit since 2017 and was elected to Foley’s Management Committee earlier this year.
“Across his more than twenty years with Foley, Marcus has led by example, demonstrating strategic vision and continued success in various leadership roles,” said Daljit Doogal, Foley chairman and CEO. “Foley’s Detroit office is in excellent hands with Marcus at the helm, particularly given the strong foundation laid by his predecessor, Phil, who I thank for his nearly seven years of furthering Foley’s continued growth and success.”
As office managing partner, Sprow will focus on strategically growing the Detroit office, further enhancing Foley’s presence in the local market, and continuing to steward community involvement.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead the next chapter of the Detroit office and continue to build upon the remarkable culture of client and community service that Phil and those before him helped build,” said Sprow. “I’m also eager to grow the Detroit office consistent with the firm’s sector-led strategic plan and to expand Foley’s reputation as the go-to trusted advisor to the city’s automotive and manufacturing industries.”
Established in 2000, Foley’s Detroit office provides comprehensive legal services that are especially aligned with the city’s automotive and manufacturing industries. The Detroit office is particularly known for its work in corporate and securities law, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, commercial litigation, supply chain matters, restructuring, intellectual property, and labor and employment.
