Ted Schaer to Compete in ‘CHOPPED’ Contest to Benefit the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

November 11, 2015

On November 11 and 12, 2015 at Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, Theodore M. Schaer, shareholder at Zarwin Baum. will join three other trial attorneys from across the U.S. as they compete in Magna Legal Services’ version of the Food Network series, ‘CHOPPED.’  Ted returns to defend his title streak after winning the judges' votes in the first and second Magna CHOPPED competition. 

Doubling the amount to be donated from previous years, the attorneys will compete to win up to $10,000.00 in donations made in their firm's name to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Consisting of claims executives and in-house counsel from Fortune 500 companies, the judges will provide feedback on the effectiveness of the presentations, and after each phase of the trial they will vote and "chop" a lawyer from the competition, leaving one ultimate champion. 

"After two years of successful competition, we knew that for this third iteration of “CHOPPED” we needed to kick things up a notch,” said Peter Hecht, Magna's Executive Vice President of Business Development. “Along with the value of the daily CLE courses, and the entertainment factor of the competition, it is a heartwarming honor to know this is being done in the name of raising money for the deserving kids at CHOP."

“Speaking for everyone at Children’s Hospital, we are grateful for your dedication and devotion to our shared cause, helping those children who need it most,” said Maureen Mason, Director of Event Fundraising and Community Partnerships at CHOP. “Through this funding, you are helping to make a difference to our children and their families every day.”

"Not many CLE events can pack in the suspense, drama, laughs and education that Magna delivers during “CHOPPED,” added Hecht. “Our education chair, Richard Fabian, Senior Vice President & General Counsel, Director of Litigation at The RiverStone Companies will be devising a challenging fact pattern with unexpected twists at each phase, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this year’s group of legal industry professionals compete and put on a show."
