With great sadness and regret, the American Bar Association Section of International Law announced the death of Steven C. Krane, 53, of New York. He was a partner at Proskauer Rose LLP, concentrating his practice in representing lawyers and law firms in legal ethics and professional liability matters. He co-chaired the firm's Law Firm Practice Group and served as general counsel for the 700-lawyer firm. He previously served as a law clerk to Hon. Judith S. Kaye, retired Chief Judge of the State of New York, from 1984 to 1985. Within the ABA Section of International Law, Steven served as Co-Chair of the Section's Task Force on Outsourcing. He was also the youngest person to be elected as president of the New York State Bar Association.
We extend our condolences to his family, friends, and co-workers.
