Jeremy Goldstein is an attorney at law and partner at Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates LLC, a law firm that specializes in providing advice to compensation committees and corporations on executive compensation and corporate governance matters. Goldstein has played a role in some of the most noteworthy corporate transactions and acquisitions in recent years involving corporate giants The Dow Chemical Company, Goldman Sachs, Verizon Wireless, and JP Morgan Chase.
Prior to founding his own law firm, Goldstein was partner at another large firm based in New York. He earned a juris doctorate degree from New York University School of Law and also holds degrees from the University of Chicago and Cornell University.
Goldstein also served as a board member and co-chair of The Associates Committee of Fountain House. Fountain House is an organization committed to providing support for men and women who suffer from mental illness by giving them opportunities to be productive members of society and lend their talents to strengthening the communities in which they live, work, and play.
On Nov. 1, 2012, the committee hosted its fifth annual Fall Fête, an event designed to raise awareness among young professionals and introduce them to Fountain House’s mission and purpose. At the event, Goldstein addressed attendees speaking to the organization’s impact on the lives of those living with mental illness, and he announced the presentation of the Associates Scholarship Fund. At the time, Heather Hynes and Alexis Preston, recipients of the 2012 scholarship, were both attending universities, studying commercial photography and early education respectively.
Fountain House’s work and commitment provides hope to the millions of individuals affected by mental illness, which is often a source of shame and rejection. The organization’s approach has also inspired over 400 additional groups in 30 countries and 32 states to serve the tens of thousands of individuals affected by mental illness each year.
