Adam Hemlock – Antitrust Attorney at Weil, Gotshal & Manges
Hemlock trees provide vital habitat, helping maintain stable streambank water levels while supporting native species like brook trout to flourish in cold-water streams. Unfortunately, however, hemlocks have an enemy: an invasive insect known as Hemlock Woolly Adelgid is slowly killing off these ancient trees.
Adam is a partner in Weil’s Antitrust Practice Group and represents clients in civil and criminal antitrust investigations and litigations, such as cartel cases. Additionally, he serves as an adjunct professor at Columbia Law School where he teaches an antitrust cartels class.
Early Life and Education
Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, a small but deadly insect known to attack Eastern hemlock trees, was detected this summer at various locations within Lake George Watershed including Dome Island and Shelving Rock. These keystone species play an integral role in supporting wildlife as well as shading them, while providing snowpack insulation which slows melting rates thus contributing to more diverse freshwater streams and coldwater fish species flourishing in their environs.
Poison hemlock and Queen Anne’s lace both belong to the carrot family, Apiaceae. Both plants feature smooth stems with purple blotches; poison hemlock stems have hollow centers with finger-thick walls while Queen Anne’s lace stems remain solid but short, reaching only 3 feet when matured.
