Sharon Marshall joins Evergreen Trading

Active_SharonMarshall enlargedA good friend and previous long-time colleague of many of us has joined the Evergreen Trading team. Sharon Marshall is now our Senior Vice President, General Counsel.

Many of us worked with Sharon in our previous trading company positions. She is without doubt the top legal mind in the corporate trading business and we are fortunate to have her. To provide legal counsel in corporate trade demands more than legal schooling and the moniker of attorney. Because of the myriad structures and permutations possible in a trade transaction, crafting the nuances into an effective formal written agreement requires a great deal of experience in the business – experience one only gains by writing thousands of agreements and by working side by side for years with colleagues and clients.

Sharon started her legal career at the Law Firm of Epstein, Becker & Green before moving into the corporate sector where she was appointed the Corporate Counsel of the DSN Companies, an affiliation of insurance companies and service contract administrators. She thereafter joined a New York-based corporate trading company where she was ultimately promoted to General Counsel. Sharon’s expertise includes mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, complex financing arrangements, employment-related law, intellectual property, corporate governance and compliance, insurance and real estate. 

“I couldn’t be happier to be here at Evergreen Trading working side by side with people I consider the best minds in the corporate trade business. But, more than smart people, these are guys and gals who are determined to change the face of corporate trade – a mission I’m thrilled to be part of.” 

Sharon holds a J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, an M.S.W. from Wurzweiler School of Social Work and a B.A. from Clark University. She also holds a certificate in Mediation Training. She is a member of the Association of Corporate Counsel, the American Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, the Rockland County Women’s Bar Association and Martindale-Hubbell Connected. A mother of four, Sharon lives with her husband in Rockland County, New York.
