Death Of Matthew Rosen, Co-Head Of Skadden's Tax Practice

RosenNew York Times Obituary (Nov. 20, 2015):

The partners, attorneys and staff of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom mourn the passing of our partner and friend Matthew Rosen. A co-head of our tax practice, Matthew was a rare kind of lawyer -- one of the very finest tax practitioners of his generation and an unsurpassed mentor of the generations growing up under him. He led by example and will be remembered as always supporting new talent and the expansion of the practice into new spheres. Matthew joined our New York tax team in 1979 and, building upon the culture of camaraderie he inherited, enhanced the tightly knit group's reputation exponentially. Matthew handled every aspect of tax work and developed various types of financial instruments. He was repeatedly ranked among the top practitioners of his field.

Raised in South Philly, Matthew attended Swarthmore College ('73) and Boston University School of Law ('76) and received an LLM from New York University School of Law ('79).

He is survived by his wife, Mariana, and his children, Amanda, Anthony and Oliver. He will be missed greatly by all of us.

New York Times Obituary (Nov. 20, 2015):

The Board and Staff of Playwrights Horizons mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Matthew Rosen. He served on the Board of Trustees for more than six years. What stands out most was his deep and genuine love for theater and the process of playwriting. He attended almost every developmental reading we did, and became a personal friend and champion to many of our writers and staff. He was smart, thoughtful and compassionate. We will remember him as a highly respected lawyer, a loving father, and a friend. Our deepest sympathies to his partner Mariana Elder and his children Anthony Elder Rosen, and Amanda and Oliver.
