In Memoriam

Our dear friend and colleague, Stephen F. Gates, 71, passed away on July 7, 2017. As special counsel in Mayer Brown’s Houston office, Steve worked on corporate and dispute resolution matters in the firm’s Energy practice.

Steve had a long and distinguished career as a lawyer, both in private practice and as general counsel to Amoco Corporation, FMC Corporation and ConocoPhillips. He was an ardent supporter of alternative dispute resolution and a leader in the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution. In addition to his professional commitments, Steve was active in civic life, serving many organizations both nationally and in his adopted community of Charleston, South Carolina.

Steve was a gifted lawyer, a wonderful mentor, and a cherished friend and colleague to many in the Mayer Brown family. We are deeply saddened by his passing.
