Speaking on the occasion of launching the Washington DC office, the co-managing partners of the law firm issued a statement observing, “Stroock’s Washington DC office is a logical expansion of the firm … Chris Griner is both an exceptional lawyer and a skilled manager, and his renown in national security/CFIUS compliance presented an opportunity to add a market-leading practice area that complements Stroock’s strengths in areas such as private M&A, government relations, energy, project finance and financial services regulation.”

Stuart Coleman, co-managing partner and head of the Investment Management Group of the law firm also said, “Bob Plaze is widely regarded as a key architect of many of the rules governing regulated investment advisers, investment companies and private fund advisers … His work has shaped the modern regulation of the asset management industry in so many different ways. We are delighted that he is joining the practice.”

According to Stroock’s press release, the law firm represents nearly $1 trillion in assets under management, or approximately 7 percent of all U.S. investment company assets.
