Craig Wasserman ‘86/Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz Alumni Breakfasts
The Craig Wasserman ‘86/Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz breakfast program for alumni in New York City features panel discussions on current topics in business law by members of the bar, business and investment communities, public officials and faculty. Initiated in 2000, the alumni breakfast program was named in honor of Craig Wasserman ’86 and the Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz law firm in 2013.
Craig Wasserman (1960-2010) was a remarkable individual. A partner at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, Craig specialized in the financial institutions practice of the corporate group, and was one of the nation’s leading deals attorneys. He managed at the same time to be an active participant on the Center’s Board of Advisors, of which he was one of the six original members. Craig was a fount of ideas, with unbounded enthusiasm for what the Center was trying to accomplish and how we could do it better. He was especially concerned about strengthening ties between the Law School and its graduates. In that regard, he was an avid proponent of the alumni breakfast program, and was intimately involved in planning a number of programs, so it is especially appropriate that the breakfast series has been named in his honor by the generosity of his colleagues at Wachtell Lipton.
On establishing the Center’s Bert W. Wasserman Workshop in Law and Finance, Craig described his father as “a distinguished leader in the field of finance who exemplified the field’s highest professional and ethical standards.” Those twin concerns of professional excellence and ethical conduct animated his own life, and those who knew Craig admired the very same qualities in him. Remarks honoring Craig on the occasion of the inaugural Craig Wasserman ‘86/Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz alumni breakfast on October 17, 2013,were delivered by Dean Robert Post ‘77 and Wachtell Lipton partner Steven A. Rosenblum ‘82.
