As one of New York’s leading corporate attorneys, Jeremy Goldstein sits on the board of one of this city’s most established charities. Mr. Goldstein is on the Board of Directors for Fountain House, an organization that has been helping adults with mental illnesses live more productive lives since 1948. As an advocate for Fountain House, Mr. Goldstein recently helped the organization raise more than 56,000 dollars through the combined efforts of two events held as wine dinners. The money will allow Fountain House to continue helping in the recovery process adults with mental illnesses need in order to find gainful employment.
The first wine dinner event provided an amazing atmosphere for guests as it was held on the rooftop of the NoMad Hotel, which has a view of the New York City skyline. Reported to be one of New York’s top private fundraising events, this wine dinner featured vintage wines from Chateau Latour. The second dinner was a direct result of the popularity of the first event. Mr. Goldstein commented on his involvement with the events by stating how mental illness affects people on a global level and how the assistance provided by Fountain House helps these individuals find real solutions for employment.
Although Jeremy Goldstein became a member of the Fountain Hose Board of Directors in 2010, it is not the only organization he is a member of. As someone who often writes about corporate governance he also became a member of NYU’s Journal of Law and Business’s Professional Advisory Board. He is also chairman of a subcommittee known as Mergers and Acquisitions, which belongs to the Executive Compensation Committee under the American Bar Association.
As a corporate attorney who had specialized in assisting companies with mergers, he saw a need for a service that addressed the issues of corporate governance and executive compensation. This led him to establish his own law firm under the heading of Jeremy Goldstein and Associates. This law firm is dedicated to providing advice to corporate leaders and management personnel on matters that often involve compensation for executives. With a career in corporate law spanning more than 20 years, Mr. Goldstein is often asked about the new trends taking place in the corporate world. He is glad to see changes taking place in corporate governance that will lead to more stability for executive compensation, which in the past was sort of a gray area as far as what criteria to use for salaries.
