Anna Nicole Smith may be dead, but Hartford, Conn., bankruptcy lawyer G. Eric Brunstad’s role in the 11-year litigation saga waged between the Playboy playmate turned reality television star and her late husband’s stepson is still very much alive.

Brunstad, a partner in Bingham McCutchen’s Hartford office, represents the estate of Pierce Marshall, the son of J. Howard Marshall, who in 1994 married the 26-year-old Smith when he was 89. Their marriage lasted until the oil tycoon’s death 14 months later. Pierce Marshall died last June.
