It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my close friend, mentor and colleague Steve Schwaber passed away last night.
Steve had surgery for bladder cancer on Friday and returned home that evening and seemed to be in good spirits. We do not know the exact cause of death and memorial services have not been coordinated yet.
Steve was an active member of this and other listserves, as well as the ABI and the bankruptcy community for several decades. We will all miss his insight, wit and professionalism.
This is some pretty big news. Munger Tolles & Olson (where my son Hunter is an associate) is going to open an office in Washington DC. Heading up the office will be former Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli, Jr. Mr. Verrilli clerked for Justice William J. Brennan Jr. and ultimately succeeded Elana Kagen as the Solicitor general. Joining him will be veteran litigator Michael B. DeSanctis and former Deputy Associate Attorney General Chad Golder. The announcement is here. A NY Times article about Verrilli is here.
