The Orrick community mourns the loss of our colleague and dear friend Susan Barry, of counsel in our Seattle Public Finance team, who passed away on Wednesday following a bout of pneumonia.
Susan joined Orrick in New York in 1990 and moved to Seattle in 1999 to help found our office. She became a leader in the Pacific Northwest Public Finance Bar. A winner of the firm’s 2012 Mentoring Award, she was a great and tireless mentor. We remember her as an excellent lawyer and a caring and thoughtful person with a huge, compassionate heart.
Susan will be deeply missed by everyone in the Orrick family who had the privilege to know her and work with her.
