Before becoming one of New York’s best corporate attorneys, Jeremy Goldstein was a collegiate overachiever. Not only did he graduate from Cornell University with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree, but he graduated with distinction in all subjects as well. Next, he earned a Master’s of Arts from the University of Chicago before returning to New York and earning his Juris Doctor (law degree) from New York University.
After graduation, he joined a law firm that specialized in corporate law. He quickly began a partner at the firm due to his unique strategy of getting to know his clients. Shortly after making partner, Goldstein noticed several executive compensation consulting firms branching out on their own and finding success as independent entities.
Today, Jeremy Goldstein is a partner at his own law firm, which specializes in corporate governance and executive compensation. His firm also advises CEOs, management teams, and compensation committees. To date, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates has worked on some of the largest corporate transactions over the last 10 years.
Goldstein and Associates became the top corporate law firm thanks to Goldstein’s approach to working with clients. While most attorneys saw their clients as successes and failures or paydays; Jeremy Goldstein used a friendlier approach and got to know his clients to better understand what they needed out of their particular transaction.
Using his open-communication approach, Goldstein earned himself on the American Bar Association’s Mergers & Acquisition Subcommittee. He’s also considered the foremost expert on matters involving executive compensation and corporate governance. He even travels the country giving speeches on these issues.
Aside from his professional excellence, Goldstein is also an avid supporter of Fountain House, a New York-based charity dedicated to the recovery of men and women suffering from mental illness. Having New York’s best corporate attorney speaking publicly goes a long way toward removing the stigma surrounding mental illness.
As an attorney who works with clients during highly stressful situations, Goldstein’s seen his share of people who needed more than his help but didn’t get it. Sadly, many people suffering from mental illness don’t realize most mental illnesses can be easily treated or even cured.
The greatest way Goldstein helps Fountain House is by raising awareness. For the past two years, Jeremy Goldstein’s held luxurious wine dinners on top of the Nomad Hotel overlooking the New York skyline. His first dinner was such a success; guests begged him to throw a second later that year. Now, Jeremy Goldstein throws at least one wine dinner every year overlooking the New York skyline.
