CL&M Mourns the Passing of Former Partner Renato Beghè

Former partner and Senior U.S. Tax Court Judge Renato Beghè passed away on Saturday, July 7.
After graduating from the University of Chicago Law School at age 21, Renato joined the firm in 1954 and soon entered the Tax Department.  He was the head of the Tax Department when he left in 1983, having in the meantime served as chairman of the NY State Bar Association Tax Section in 1977-78 and been active in various other professional and community groups.  He was named as a judge of the U.S. Tax court in 1991 and became a senior judge in 2003.
We remember Renato as a gentleman of the old school (when he came to the office on weekends he would wear a tie if his secretary was coming in too; otherwise he wouldn’t) with a lively interest in all things intellectual.  No one who ever worked with him on an article or brief will forget his search for the most relevant literary reference to include in his footnotes!
