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.

He guided the firm’s development, never wavering from his principles of unparalleled legal advice, loyalty to his colleagues and peers and social responsibility.”
