Howard D. Scher, of counsel in the firm's Litigation section, received the Lifetime Achievement award from The Legal Intelligencer.

Scher began his career after a very short stint in the Defenders’ Association at the City Solicitor’s Office in Philadelphia heading the appeals and special litigation. Within those two years, he had helped try and win a civil rights challenge to the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter, lost on appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and had it reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Other career highlights include, serving as the head of Jewish Law Day; a witness in the impeachment trial of Justice Rolf Larson; and having obtained numerous successful trial verdicts, including a $55 million jury verdict that included $25 million punitive damages in a commercial dispute, which was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and resulted in complete satisfaction.
