The firm mourns the death of our friend and colleague Alejandro Radzyminski, 46, a prominent international corporate lawyer who was based in our New York office.
When he joined Skadden, Arps in 1997 as an associate, Alejandro was already a highly regarded member of the Argentine bar and a frequently published author who had been honored by the University of Buenos Aires for his extraordinary academic achievements. He became a partner of our firm in 2005 and recently focused on complex corporate financial transactions in Latin America, where he had earned a well-deserved reputation for his ability to bring to bear cutting-edge financial and legal tools to address the unique needs of businesses in that region.
As a practicing lawyer in the United States and Argentina, Alejandro truly spoke the language of all who sought his counsel and advice. But mostly, his friends and partners will remember him for his generosity, his quick wit and his courage in the face of adversity. He will be greatly missed.
