Paul E. Bomze, 1932-2017
Kleinbard mourns the loss of our colleague and friend, Paul Bomze. Paul joined the Firm in 1964 and rose to become a highly respected ERISA and Estate Planning attorney. For over five decades, he assisted our clients in succession and estate planning and was a skilled practitioner in representing Trustees of Taft-Hartley Pension Welfare and Defined Contribution Retirement Plans in all aspects of plan administration and design. Paul also served as a Managing Partner of our Firm for over two decades and he mentored generations of Kleinbard lawyers.
“Paul was a role model in his steadfast dedication to our Firm. He cared deeply for his colleagues and clients, many of whom were friends for decades” said Howard Davis, a Managing Partner of the Firm. “Paul was an accomplished athlete, his love for tennis and basketball was only surpassed by his commitment to the Firm and love for his family”.
Paul received his undergraduate degree and MBA from Cornell University and attended the University of Pennsylvania law school. Paul also served as an officer in the United States Air Force where he negotiated special weapons contracts with civilian contractors. He is survived by his wife, Sandy, his children, Beth, David, Fred and Judy and grandchildren Michael, Amanda, Steven, Lauren, Allie and the late David.
