Two of Stroock’s latest lateral partner hires — Timothy DeKeyser and Yong-Nam Jun — spoke with Law360 this week about what motivated their moves to Stroock and their plans for the next chapter of their careers. Co-managing partner Alan Klinger joined them to weigh in on how Tim and Yong fit into Stroock’s long-term plans for growth.

Tim says he was drawn in by the opportunity to tackle sophisticated transactions at a national level.

"I don't like doing kind of the run-of-the-mill things. And so that's part of the reason why I also chose Stroock is because you hire a law firm like Stroock because you have something that's very difficult. You need the best legal minds to tackle it," DeKeyser said.

Yong has his eye on Stroock’s operations on an even larger scale; he’ll be taking the lead on the firm’s work with Asia-based clients with an eye towards expanding his work in Korea related to real estate and private equity.

“A lot of our work tends to be very cross-border. And especially I think that at this work-from-home age, I think you're sitting in your home office, kind of dealing with the world with various different countries and time zones and that keeps things always interesting, working with different cultures and so forth," Jun told Law360.

Tim and Yong join the firm as part of Stroock’s current stage of steady, controlled growth.

“We are not looking to become a 1,000-lawyer firm. But we are looking to grow in areas that make sense for us. And we are greatly heartened by the success of just the past several months. Not easy to bring people on in what is mostly a virtual environment. But we think we've succeeded in doing that," Alan said.
