Howrey founder Baker passes away in DC
Howrey's founding partner Harold 'Hal' Baker died last month (11 November) after a long illness. He died in Washington DC, aged 87. Baker was one of four partners to launch the firm Howrey Simon Baker & Murchison in 1956. He then served as managing partner for 30 years (1956-86). Current chairman and CEO Bob Ruyak said: "Howrey and the entire Washington legal community have lost a giant, and several of us have lost a mentor and dear friend. Hal's imprint on Howrey and on the practice of antitrust law is indelible."
