Ladov Gears Up For “Her Year”

Sayde Ladov, a veteran and heavily involved member of the Philadelphia Bar Association, has long made known her intention to one day become chancellor of that organization.

But like many political candidates, Ladov wanted to wait until the moment was right.

In 2004, Ladov, a trial attorney with Abrahams Loewenstein & Bushman and that year’s secretary of the association’s Board of Governors, opted not to run for the 2007 chancellorship against Jane Leslie Dalton of Duane Morris, who won after an unopposed race.

At the time, Ladov promised that she would run in 2006.

“That is my year,” Ladov said. “I’ve staked it out.”

 Ladov has officially announced her candidacy for this year’s race, and is getting right down to business.

She has hired Dan Cirucci, the Philadelphia Bar Association’s longtime (and recently former) press guru, as her public relations consultant.

And she has set up a Web site — — to help promote her candidacy. The online tactic, she noted, seemed to work well for Saul Ewing’s Gabe Bevilacqua, who served as chancellor in 2004.

According to Ladov, the race is shaping up to be a contested one.

She said that Alec Kerr, a former name partner at Hoyle Morris & Kerr who is now a partner with the local office of North Jersey-based McCarter & English, is expected to be her opponent.

Kerr did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.
