Ropes & Gray is deeply saddened to announce that Terrell J. (Terry) Iandiorio, counsel in the firm’s government enforcement group in Boston, died on Aug. 16 in Nantucket, Mass. He was 46.

A graduate of Harvard College and The University of Chicago Law School, Mr. Iandiorio joined the firm as an associate in 2006 and was promoted to counsel in 2016.

Mr. Iandiorio’s practice focused on advising and representing clients in the medical device, pharmaceutical and defense industries, guiding them through a wide range of complex government investigations and enforcement proceedings, as well as in related civil suits.

Mr. Iandiorio was also deeply committed to public service, serving as lead counsel for the firm’s pro bono partnership with the Medical-Legal Partnership | Boston and DotHouse Health, a community health center delivering medical care and other services to members of the Boston community. In 2016, Mr. Iandiorio was honored with the Denis Maguire Award from the Boston Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project, and in 2015, he received the Outstanding Medical-Legal Partnership Pro Bono Advocacy Award from the American Bar Association.

“Terry was a deeply caring, generous and thoughtful man,” said Brad Malt, chair of Ropes & Gray. “And he was an exceptional lawyer. We were looking forward to working with him for many years to come. All of us will miss him dearly.”

“Our attorneys and our clients respect tremendously the contributions that Terry made throughout his career and here at Ropes & Gray,” said Josh Levy, co-chair of Ropes & Gray’s government enforcement practice. “Terry’s kindness, tenacity and thoughtfulness made him the consummate professional, an outstanding enforcement attorney, and a wonderful colleague. Beyond that, Terry’s leadership handling our pro bono partnership with DotHouse Health provided an immeasurable impact on the lives of people in need of legal services at critical junctures in their lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this tremendously difficult time.”  

Mr. Iandiorio is survived by his wife, Ann, and their two children, Mason and Ellery.

A memorial page has been set up here with information about his life.
