Yellowstone Club’s most affluent skier, Bill Gates Jr. watched as Bill Gates Sr. received the ABA’s Top Honor. tonight.  Bill Gates Sr. who founded K&L Gates, a law firm with 1900 lawyers in 32 offices said, “I am in awe of the men and women who have won this award before me…Oliver Wendel Holmes, Sandra Day O’Connor, Thurgood Marshall…I’m not altogether convinced I belong in that company.”

Bill Gates Sr. who retired in 1998 after 48 years in practice recieved the award largely due to the amount of pro bono work that he done over his career.  Bill Gates Jr. who is a member of the private Yellowstone Club is an avid skier and has spent time on the slopes with a cast of cool characters including Warren Miller.
