It is with great sadness that we report that Partner Harvey M. Silets passed away on Tuesday, January 23.

Harvey was a giant in the fields of Tax Controversy and White Collar Defense. He was also a great General Counsel to the Firm, and a friend and mentor to many of us over the 15 years he practiced at Katten. He will be sorely missed.

Our condolences and deepest sympathies go out to Harvey’s family. He is survived by his wife Elaine, his son H.L., his daughter Alexandra, his sister Norma Pearl, and three grandsons.

Donations may be made in Harvey's name to Interlochen Center for the Arts, P.O. Box 199, Interlochen, MI 49643-0199, for the benefit of the Jonathan Lazarus Silets Memorial Scholarship Fund.
