Michael Wilder was profiled in the New York Times on June 13 for having won the title of U.S. Chess Champion in 1988, the year before he entered law school. Mr. Wilder, a grandmaster, now focuses on corporate tax matters with McDermott, and said he has not played in a chess tournament game in more than 15 years. “I just didn’t have the energy or the motivation to keep my skills fresh [because] I never gave serious consideration to being a professional chess player,” he stated. He added that his desire to “play chess for a while and then do something else” was also motivated by the need to support his family. “I thought there are other things that I might find interesting that might be a more stable career,” Mr. Wilder said.
