Jeremy Goldstein is America’s number one executive compensation lawyer

Jeremy Goldstein has become one of America’s top executive compensation lawyers. Cutting his teeth with famed law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz over the course of 15 years, Goldstein has worked on some of the largest cases in recent corporate history. These include the Kmart acquisition of Sears Robuck, the Verizon merger with Alltel and the Phillips Petroleum acquisition of Conoco, giving Goldstein eminent authority in his field.


After receiving a Juris Doctor in law from New York University, Goldstein was recruited by Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz as a young executive compensation attorney. This would be the start of a highly successful career. Goldstein began to specialize in counseling companies going through disruptive periods in their corporate lifecycle. These included mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies, proxy wars and other generally tough times. Goldstein found it was in these periods of disruption that corporations became most vulnerable to attacks on the compensation packages of executives and employees.


After successfully litigating many hundreds of cases, Goldstein decided that he was no longer interested in just the money alone. He wanted to help small to medium business owners have access to the same quality of legal expertise that their larger brethren were able to muster. He decided to strike out on his own.


One of the first steps that Goldstein took to create a successful new boutique firm was the addition of his name today Lawyer Referral and Information System, a system that pairs lawyers with clients who are in search of legal expertise. The system is run by the New York State Bar Association, the oldest continuously running bar association in the United States. The New York State Bar Association has been operating since 1875 and has served as a model for most other state bars. It currently has over 72,000 members and helps millions of satisfied clients get the legal help they need, every year.
