People usually don’t think about big corporation’s lawyers, but they all can’t be bloodsucking parasites. Look at Jeremy Goldstein, one of the most preferred business lawyers in New York. Jeremy Goldstein graduated from Cornell University, the University of Chicago, and the New York University School of Law. With a background like that, there’s no way he could lead his clients astray.
His background is one of the main reasons so many New York-based companies and high-profile individuals come to him. He has 15 years worth of knowledge and experience that can’t be matched by any other attorney in the state.
After graduating, he ended up working at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, and Katz. Over time, he was named partner and started focusing on executive compensation and corporate governance. That set of skills propelled his career further than anyone could imagine. He soon left Wachtell and established his own firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates.
Now, his clients come to him to talk about compensation, governance, transformative events, and other sensitive situations. He’s handled every significant transaction his firm’s played a role in, including some that involved Verizon, AT&T, Bank One, and Merck. Most of his current meetings are about compensation methods, and which are the best fit.
Most successful professionals also donate their time and money to some philanthropic cause. Many of them do this to appear generous. Jeremy Goldstein works with Fountain House because he believes in what they’re doing. Fountain House is an organization that helps people who have mental illness.
Mental illness is something that millions of Americans suffer from, but few seek help. It’s considered embarrassing and shameful to need help with things like that. Tearing down that wall is something that Goldstein and Fountain House are focused on every day. Mental Illness is nothing to be ashamed of, and people need to realize the severity of it.
Currently, Goldstein is a member of the organization’s Board of Directors. He also hosts fundraisers and charity events to bring awareness to the issue. Earlier this year, he held a wine dinner on top of a luxury hotel in New York.
The party impressed guests so well; everyone wanted to do it again. The second party he held raised more money for Fountain House, bringing the wine dinner total to over $56,000.
