Mr. Asher was a member of the Firm from 2005 until his death in 2015. Throughout his successful career Steve concentrated his practice in antitrust class action litigation. He served as co-lead counsel for plaintiffs in numerous significant and highly successful antitrust class actions.
Shortly after Steve’s passing the Honorable Gene E.K. Pratter, District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, entered an order of condolence in In re Processed Egg Products Antitrust Litigation. As if she were speaking for our Firm, Judge Pratter wrote that Steve “ably served the litigants, fellow counsel, and the Court,” and she “express[ed] profound sadness, exceeded only by the high regard with which I have held Mr. Asher for his personal and professional attributes and performance.”
We continue to miss Steve’s wise counsel and good humor.
