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.
Alumni Spotlight:A Conversation with Alum Rick Sharma
We recently caught up with former Stroock lawyer Rick Sharma, now Chief Legal Advisor at hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, which manages assets for many of the world’s largest institutional investors. Rick discussed his current role as well as many lessons he learned as a Stroock associate, in the army and as a government lawyer. He talked about the challenges and benefits of working in-house, gave clear guidance on what outside counsel can do to better serve corporate clients and shared career advice for new 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.
