Bill Burke (Shearman & Sterling) and Mountain Climbing

about-me croppedToday, my guest is William Burke*, a retired partner from Shearman & Sterling.  After retiring at the age of 60, Bill climbed the tallest mountains on all 7 continents, including Mt. Everest twice and is the oldest American to reach the summit (both times)!  I was lucky enough to interview him while he was in Katmandu, Nepal just as he was completing his second climb of Everest from the North Face. You can read much more of his accomplishments at his website Eight Summits and see a trailer for his documentary Eight Summits: The Bill Burke Story below.

*With special thanks to Dan Burke and Sheri Mayerowitz
