In memoriam: Bill Eisen

A remembrance

Our friend and partner Bill Eisen passed away suddenly on August 10, 2017 while running along the beach in York, Maine. It was one of his daily pleasures. Born in Cleveland in 1948, he graduated from Amherst College (summa cum laude) and Harvard Law School. He joined this firm in 1975. He also taught at the Harvard Extension School.

When asked what he did for a living, he would answer, “I help people.” He was unfailingly interested in people and their stories, and applied his boundless intellect to solving problems in ways no one else could. He made friends everywhere he went, with everyone he spoke to, regardless of background or walk of life. He was the kindest, wisest, most generous person we have ever known.

Bill was an extraordinary human being, friend, lawyer, and advisor. We will always miss him, and honor his memory.
