Mr. Fox is the managing partner of Ivins, Phillips & Barker. He was named in 2012 by the Washingtonian Magazine for the fourth straight year as one of the outstanding tax lawyers in Washington, D.C., in the Washington Post Magazine's list of Super Lawyers for the third straight year, and has been named in Best Lawyers in America in each of the last ten consecutive years. Although, during his 47 years with the firm, Mr. Fox devoted a substantial portion of his activities to international and corporate taxation, today he concentrates primarily on matters in controversy before the Internal Revenue Service and the courts and in estate planning. He has represented clients before the United States Tax Court, the United States Court of Federal Claims, various United States District Courts, a variety of United States Courts of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court where he won an 8 to 1 decision in the United Dominion Industries case in 2001.

Mr. Fox graduated from Amherst College in 1961 and Harvard Law School, cum laude, in 1964. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of International Taxation from 1990 through 1996 and, after many years of service in various capacities in the Tax Section of the American Bar Association, served as its Vice Chair, Administration, from 1996 to 1998. He is a member of the Bars of the State of New York and the District of Columbia.
