New York, June 1, 2020 – In its continued effort to broaden the firm’s service offerings across strategic growth areas, Stroock has added partner Eric Aronson to its Litigation Group and senior counsel Jeffrey Meyers to its Commodities, Derivatives and Energy practice.

Eric maintains a comprehensive litigation practice, bringing wide-ranging experience at the trial and appellate levels, while Jeff focuses on varied energy, corporate and transactional matters across the globe.

Eric routinely advises public and private companies and management teams on issues as varied as securities, construction, environmental law and intellectual property. His regular clients include top financial institutions, real estate developers, life sciences companies, private equity groups and closely held corporations.

“Eric represents a perfect complement to Stroock’s Litigation practice,” said Alan Klinger, the firm’s co-managing partner. “In addition to his extensive and varied experience, he brings a focus on problem-solving that fits very well with our aim of providing pragmatic, business-minded counsel.”

Eric’s experience includes litigation in federal and state courts nationwide, as well as domestic
and international arbitrations. He has also argued appeals before numerous state and federal
appellate courts.

His recent matters include representing a consumer products company in CERCLA litigation and
related regulatory issues regarding the largest Superfund Site in the United States, defending a
nationwide class action involving labeling claims, representing a financial services company regarding certain debt instruments, and guiding a major closely held retailer in a series of shareholder litigations and related disputes.

“Stroock’s General Litigation team has a reputation for bespoke, sophisticated guidance in
complex and high-profile matters,” Eric said. “I’m thrilled to be joining this team, and I look forward to drawing on my experience to help expand on its notable successes.”

Jeff, a prominent energy lawyer, has extensive experience in the development and financing of domestic and international energy projects, and the acquisition and sale of interests in energy facilities and companies totaling billions of dollars and thousands of megawatts.

“Jeff has been one of the industry’s premier energy lawyers for decades,” noted Marvin Goldstein, co-head of Stroock’s Commodities, Derivatives and Energy Group. “Jeff’s arrival further solidifies our strong practice and deepens our ability to service our clients.”

Throughout his career, Jeff has worked on matters involving wind, solar and other renewable energy generating projects, biofuels production facilities, fossil fuel-fired generating facilities, oil and gas exploration and production and midstream activities and investments in energy technologies.

“I’m thrilled to be joining a group of lawyers who have long operated at the cutting edge of this field,” Jeff said. “I look forward to working with this team on the sophisticated and groundbreaking transactions for which it is renowned.”
