Firm Mourns the Passing of Founding Partner Roy Tolles

The firm mourns the passing of one of its founding partners, E. Leroy Tolles, who died on January 28, 2008 at the age of 85. Roy was one of seven partners who founded in 1962 the firm now known as Munger, Tolles & Olson, where he practiced until his retirement in 1992. Roy was much admired by his colleagues for his wisdom, judgment, and vision.  “Roy’s common sense and quick wit undergirded our firm for thirty years,” said partner Ron Olson. “Respect for clients and colleagues was in his DNA, and that DNA remains at the core of our law firm’s culture.”
