Stroock is a forward-facing, progressive firm focused on innovation and efficiency to benefit our clients. But we know where we came from, as the saying goes. With 140+ years behind us, we cherish our history and all those who have made Stroock the firm it is today. We value our alumni both for the contributions they have made while at Stroock and for the accomplishments they have achieved since.
We recently caught up with former Stroock lawyer Cary Kleinman. He is now a managing director of global alternative investment management firm Oaktree Capital Management, L.P., and in-house counsel for its real estate group. Cary talked about his time at Stroock, lessons learned throughout his career, the benefits and challenges of working in-house, and how outside counsel can better serve corporate clients. He also shared some practical career advice for newer lawyers.
We are heartened by our robust alumni relationships and have several ways for you to stay in touch with the firm. We regularly host alumni events and invite our alumni to take part in various Stroock events from CLE programs to social gatherings, virtual and in-person. Our LinkedIn alumni group is a great place for former Stroockies to gather, trade information and exchange news. Reach out to us to request an invite to join the group.
To ensure our alumni are current on firm happenings and events, we share news via our alumni mailing list as well as the LinkedIn group.
