Steven David Einhorn, age 43, of New York City, passed away unexpectedly on July 13, 2021. Steven was born July 22, 1977, in La Mirada, California to David and Peggy Einhorn. He graduated with a Bachelor's in History from California State PolytechnicUniversity, Pomona. He then continued his education and earned a Masters of Divinity from Master's Seminary and then a Juris Doctorate from Baylor Law School. To complete his education he earned an LLM in Tax from New York University.

Steven was a partner at Brown Rudnick and a member of the firm's Tax Practice Group. He focused on a broad range of executive compensation and employee benefits matters, particularly in the context of mergers, acquisitions and other forms of business transactions and reorganizations. Steven also advised tax-exempt organizations and executives of tax-exempt organizations in compensation and benefits issues. Prior to joining Brown Rudnick, Steven was a member of Proskauer Rose and Weil Gotshal. Steven authored and co-authored numerous publications and because of his strong reputation, he was named "Rising Star" by Super Lawyer in the area of employee benefits.

Steven was determined and could accomplish anything he set his mind to do. He loved to learn. He could often be found listening to podcasts, researching whatever topic that may have come to mind that day, watching his beloved Los Angeles Lakers, or spending time with his family, whom he loved.

Steven was an active member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church. He was a phenomenal storyteller and had an incredible sense of humor. Fiercely loyal to those around him, Steven was a good friend to everyone he met. To know Steven was to love him. His faith and his family were his worlds. Steven loved New York City and exploring with his family while creating lifelong memories. He also loved playing games with them and was the best #girldad.

Steven is survived by his wife, Laura Einhorn; daughters, Katherine and Elizabeth Einhorn; mother, Peggy Einhorn; father, David Einhorn; sister, Shelly Einhorn; many cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Steve was my Pastor first. He preached my husbands memorial service. He and Laura became a son and daughter to me way back before they married. I have followed their many adventures in life, the greatest is their love and devotion to each other and their precious daughters. Steve was an amazing Father He gave his children a wonderful foundation of love and attention . They will go far in life. Sweet Laura, Katie and Elizabeth , you are always in my prayers and love.

I write this with true sadness and humility. I only knew Steven for a short time since he joined Brown Rudnick and our relationship was mostly in a professional capacity. But, there were a few moments where I got to glimpse the man behind the most competent ERISA partner I ever worked with -snatches of conversation on calls after we finished with business and a long walk on the beach at our last retreat. I was impressed with Steven's intelligence, patience and general decency and the way he was able to balance and prioritize his life. His passing is a major loss to the firm, but that pales to the loss suffered by his family and those who knew him well outside of work. I am sorry that I did not get the opportunity to know him even better.

Steveand Laurawere students of mine at Cal Poly Pomona. They were exceptional CPP grads. Both excellent students and wonderful people, they have, in their life's journey, made those of us at the university very proud. Steve was such a good father and husband. His Facebook postings (particularly with his girls), which I always sought out, were unrivaled, revealing a joy and humanity unmatched in social media. My wife Linda and I had such a marvelous dinner together with the Einhorns during our last stay in NYC, and we were looking forward to getting together again once we could get back to the city that Steve so understood and loved. He long will remain in our memories.
