In Memoriam

Ted Poretz

1954 – 2023

We are shocked and saddened to report that our great friend, colleague, and partner Ted Poretz passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 12, 2023.  Ted began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney under Robert Morgenthau, and then turned to private practice as a commercial litigator for the next forty years.  Ted was a fantastic lawyer who had an uncanny ability to find the subtle, critical legal pathways to success for those he represented. Ted was literally a lawyer’s lawyer. He represented other lawyers and law firms when they needed help, and he was a trusted advisor within our firm. With his door always open, Ted would draw on his wide-ranging experience and knowledge to suggest a practical approach or solution nearly every time. Most important, Ted was a wonderful, generous friend, colleague, husband, and father.  He is survived by his wife, Beth Sosin, and his two children, Josh and Jenny.  We have no words to describe adequately our sense of loss.
