It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of a valued member of the legal marketing community. Dave Woods passed away last week after a long struggle with a rare cancer. Dave served in several in-house marketing roles at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, Pitney Hardin LLP, White & Case LLP, Shearman & Sterling LLP and Marsh & McLellan.
Dave had an extraordinary sense of care and compassion for others as depicted in this news article about how he spent his last months meeting with and consoling hospice patients so they weren’t alone in the end. You can read his obituary here.
