In The American Lawyer article “Death of Diversity Pioneer Rooney a Tough Blow to Buchanan Ingersoll,” Jack Barbour, Buchanan’s executive chairman, comments on the death of Dan Rooney, Jack’s longtime client and friend. Rooney passed away on April 13 at age 84.
“[Dan] was a wonderful person,” said John “Jack” Barbour, executive chairman of the Pittsburgh-based Am Law 200 firm and legal counsel to Steelers and Rooney family. “He was extraordinarily modest, but also extraordinarily effective. Frankly, it was an honor and a pleasure to be his attorney.”
