Bloggers aren't supposed to take a hiatus. But sometimes schedules and commitments can't be adjusted or nudged aside, even for the tiniest post. I'm back and excited about the changes ahead in our industry.
A former client, Thacher Proffitt & Wood, closed its doors December 31. This was a pre-Civil War law firm with a storied history that coincided with the earliest days and growth of New York City. In the last couple decades, they became a structured finance powerhouse, representing all the brand name financial services firms. They weathered a lot, including the decimation of their New York office as part of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks.
They were a fine bunch of people, and I wish them well as they resume their careers at other firms.
