Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom name partner Joseph Flom passed away last week (23 February) at the age of 87.
Flom was considered one of the world’s leading corporate lawyers, with a career spanning more than six decades. Skadden executive partner Eric Friedman said: “Joe led significant change in the practice of corporate law during a storied career, and he was among the first to drive M&A to the top of corporate agendas. He guided the firm’s development, never wavering from his principles of unparalleled legal advice, loyalty to his colleagues and peers and social responsibility.”
