McCabe takes over as managing partner at MGKF
PHILADELPHIA, PA — As a new decade is ushered in, Carol F. McCabe takes over as managing partner of the environmental and energy law firm of Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP (MGKF) located in suburban Philadelphia. McCabe is just the fifth person to take on this role and is the firm’s first female managing partner, succeeding Jonathan Spergel, Robb Fox, Bruce Katcher and Marc Gold. While this is a landmark for the firm, this has been 25 years in the making, dating back to when McCabe was a law student of Manko and Fox at the University of Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s. From there, McCabe came to MGKF as a summer associate in 1995 and eventually joined the firm in 1996. She knew then that there were no better attorneys to learn from and no better place to build a career. “Even at the earliest part of my career, I was looking long-term and I knew MGKF was an excellent choice for challenging work and a unique firm culture. The firm was very forward-thinking in terms of all aspects of the practice of environmental law, including balancing the demands of career and family,” said McCabe.
