With an extremely heavy heart that I am passing along the tragic news of the loss of my friend and business partner, David Rosenbaum.

The entire team here at IE Law Group is devastated by his sudden passing.

Personally, I have known David for about fifteen years. Before I had the privilege of working with him, he and I were very friendly competitors at our respective firms.

He was one of the most respectful, direct and delightful people I have ever been around (all refreshing qualities in an attorney).

As I got to know him over the years, my respect for him and our friendship grew.

We started the Video Game Bar Association together a few years back. It is a testament to his character that he was so beloved and respected by his peers in the industry.  The VGBA was one of his more passionate endeavors and it owes its success and growth to his hard work in promoting it.

Earlier this year, David joined IE Law Group and his enthusiasm was palpable! We had talked about working together for years and I’m so grateful we had that chance, albeit for far too short of a time.

Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

The Video Game industry as a whole is a darker place without David.
