Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres Welcomes Transactional Attorney Taryn Strohmeyer to Firm as an Associate

August 9, 2021

Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres is pleased to announce Taryn Strohmeyer has joined the firm as an associate in its transactional practice. Taryn focuses her practice on a broad range of transactional work spanning securities, funds, mergers and acquisitions and general corporate matters.

Prior to joining Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres, Taryn was an associate in both the London and New York offices of Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP. In that capacity, she guided clients through complex transactions ranging in size from $350 million to $17.4 billion, advising on disclosures, drafting offering memoranda, purchasing agreements and other ancillary transaction documents, performing due diligence and liaising with clients. In the firm’s London office, Taryn advised underwriters and issuers in high yield debt offerings issued under Reg S and Rule 144A, and she was involved in the biggest sterling corporate bond offering in UK history, which totaled £2.75 billion.

“I’m excited to work at a firm where I can continue working on complex and challenging matters while broadening my range of knowledge and experience across new areas of practice,” said Taryn. “I believe Croke Fairchild’s structure and culture will make me a stronger attorney and better advisor by helping me to grow not only as an attorney, but also as an individual.”

As an associate, Taryn will support clients across the firm’s transactional practice areas with an emphasis on securities, mergers and acquisitions, funds and general corporate matters. She joins a transactional practice that has seen explosive growth, adding 18 attorneys and support staff since the firm’s founding in December 2019.

“We’re building a unique environment where young, talented attorneys can practice sophisticated law while also having access to the resources and mentorship they need to grow,” said Jessica Fairchild, a founding partner of Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres. “Taryn’s experience enhances our strong team of transactional attorneys, and I’m thrilled she recognizes the opportunities that exist for her to grow within our firm. We’re excited to watch her flourish.”

Taryn holds a J.D. and a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities, German Studies from the University of Chicago. She lives in New York City.
