Focusing on derivatives and commodities transactions and regulation as well as banking regulation, Bahlke represents a broad range of clients, including banks, corporations, governmental organizations, investment funds, pension plans and individuals.
Bahlke comes to Stroock from Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York, where he was a partner in the structured finance and derivatives group.

“Conrad brings to Stroock extensive experience with a broad variety of derivatives, commodities and bank regulatory work,” said Marvin Goldstein, head of Stroock’s derivatives and commodities group. “His client base has an outstanding synergy with that of Stroock and his background and deep understanding of the derivatives industry will greatly enhance the firm’s already strong practice.”
“I am excited at the opportunity to join Stroock and be immersed with a group of peers with similar experience,” Bahlke said. “I am confident this is a great fit for both myself and the firm.”
