  • Cravath’s Bob Joffe is Dead at 66

    Some sad news to report today, from the halls of Cravath, Swaine & Moore.

    Robert Joffe, the former presiding partner of Cravath, has died of cancer, according to a firm spokesperson. He was 66 years old.

    Since 1978, Joffe was the primary outside lawyer for Time Warner and led the merger of Time Inc. and Warner Communications Inc. through the FTC review. He was the principal litigator for Time Inc. in successfully rebutting Paramount’s 1989 attempted takeover, when he argued and won Paramount v. Time in the Delaware Chancery Court and Delaware Supreme Court.

    From October 2007 through its acquisition by Bank of America in January 2009, Joffe represented the independent directors of Merrill Lynch. Joffe was also counsel to the independent directors of Citigroup, General Electric and General Motors, among many others.
