Stephen Posen: Gould's Lawyer
Stephen Posen was born in Toronto in 1938, and attended law school at the University of Toronto. He joined the prominent Toronto law firm Minden Gross in 1967 and a few years later was assigned to look after the legal affairs of Glenn Gould. Although he initially viewed the Gould account as a relatively minor task, his work with the pianist blossomed into an ongoing and multifaceted involvement that has continued to this day.
