Corey Auerbach and Peter Marlette Featured in Buffalo Business First Article on Managing Director Role

Corey Auerbach and Peter Marlette, current and immediate past managing director of Barclay Damon’s Buffalo and Toronto offices, respectively, were interviewed for the Buffalo Business First article “Corey Auerbach Takes Over as Managing Director at Barclay Damon” about Corey’s new position at the firm. 

Corey spoke about his goals as managing director and stated, “I want to continue to infuse those core diversity, equity, and inclusion principals into everything that we do, and I want to add laterals with skills that are strategically important to the firm.” 

The article provided background information about Corey’s and Peter’s careers with the firm. Corey credited Peter as being a “great mentor.”

About succession planning and the firm’s overall strategy, Peter said, “This firm spends a lot of time talking about the next three, five, and 10 years down the road. We talk a lot about who are the types of clients we should be working with and are we really positioned and best suited for those clients.” Peter expressed how proud he is of how well the firm has done in the last three years and that he’s looking forward to the work Corey does in his new role. 

Corey currently serves as the chair of the firm’s Land Use & Zoning Practice Area and has previously served as the firm’s hiring partner and pro bono partner. About becoming pro bono partner in 2020, Corey said, “It was an important time to be trying to advance social justice issues. We take that obligation seriously, to give back to people who may not have the same access to justice.”

In his role as managing partner, Corey said he wants to expand upon the work he did in his previous roles. “We need to continue to be adaptable and willing to embrace change. We’re constantly looking at ways to increase team engagement. It’s really about making DEI a focus in all areas of the firm to make it the most inclusive and welcoming environment, not only because it’s the right thing to do but because our clients demand that of us.”
