It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our respected colleague and dear friend Arthur Borden on July 23 at the age of 90. A longtime partner and counsel in the New York Corporate Practice, Arthur’s legal practice spanned 50 years, the last 23 as a member of our firm.

Arthur was a legal pioneer in taking publicly traded companies private and the author of a leading treatise on the subject, “Going Private.” His keen intellect and sage counsel will be missed.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Arthur’s family. He is survived by his beloved sister Dorothy and brother-in-law Ralph Kaufman; Erica, Mark and Ross, his three children from his first wife, the late Florence Smiley of Brooklyn; Lindsay, Andrew and Anthony, his three children from his second wife, Audrey Poe of Memphis; and eight beautiful grandchildren.

Services will be held at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday, July 28, at The Riverside, 180 W. 76th St. in New York, with a reception at 4 p.m. at the University Club, 1 W. 54th St.
